West Ham United confirmed the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager on Monday morning, with the Chilean signing a three-year contract at the London Stadium.
The West Ham fans are absolutely delighted with the news, and it will be very interesting to see how Pellegrini fares in the English capital.
Transfer funds will have been discussed in the meetings between the two parties, although it is currently unclear what type of budget Pellegrini will have available this summer.
The West Ham fans have been discussing potential summer arrivals, and there are some very interesting names that have been thrown into the mix.
Indeed, one particular fan account asked the supporters to identify one realistic signing that they want to see arrive in this summer’s transfer window.
Sporting Lisbon and Portugal midfielder William Carvalho was quite popular, but there were also some surprise and indeed ambitious names in the list of responses.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
You are Manuel Pellegrini…
You are able to buy ONE player in world football (realistic signing) for a club record fee of between £30m & £40m to improve our team.
