West Ham fans have debated the prospect of selling Issa Diop to Manchester United after ExWHUemployee, via Phoenix FM, claimed that the club could table a new bid for the defender.
United were heavily linked with a swoop for the Hammers defender earlier in June.
Sky Sports News, at the time, reported that a bid of £60m would see the Irons come to the negotiating table.
And the Hammers insider has now claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could offer that figure, plus a selection of players who they wish to move out of the club. Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo were both mentioned as possible options in part-exchange.
And fans have been left split over the news, with many claiming that they cannot afford to let the star go, while others think the fee is just too high to reject.

West Ham’s highest outgoing transfer fee is the £25m they received for Dimitri Payet when they sold him to Marseille.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
The problem is we sell out best CB and then who do we replace him with? For the same quality youd need £65 million again? What’s the point

People need to get real, we’re not a champions league club, there are far better teams than us in the prem right now, 65m plus a player is good business and allows pele to get other players in, if it’s the right player they’re offering I’d take it

No,no,no we are building a side not dismantling it,if other teams are looking at our players we are going in the right direction,we were a selling club but now we buy for the FUTURE,and it’s bright

65 mill is a massive fee I would hate to see him go but got a horrible feeling this will be too tempting

We’ve got to stop selling players to the top six teams or will NEVER narrow the gap

If one of the players is Lindelof, we should accept that.
£65m + getting a better player on our hands. No brainer imo.

None of the defenders are better and we won’t get martial so no point
