West Ham United supporters are desperate to keep Marko Arnautovic at the club this summer, even if a big club comes in with a massive offer.
Manchester United have been linked with a move the attacker this week, as reported by Sky Sports, who also say that the Hammers value him at a massive £50m.
That’s a huge amount of money for a 29-year-old, but Irons fans reckon that the club should be building a team around him rather than selling him to Premier League rivals.
Arnautovic was a massive part of the club’s top-flight survival last season, scoring 11 goals and assisting 6 times in 31 Premier League appearances.
The Austrian international has built up a real affinity with fans and seems to love playing for the club, making it all the more heart-wrenching for supporters if a move does transpire this summer.
Will Man United come in for him, or is he set to stay and become a legend at the London Stadium?

De Gea + £250m I think is fair

Ridiculous to sell, he’s had an unreal season and next year if we are gonna play more attacking then he be better…also no matter how much money we would get for him we wouldn’t attract a player that can do that nor would the board spend it…priceless

Our best player by a country mile. If we are going to push on as a club, he needs to stay #COYI

If we were to sell Arnautovic & Antonio this summer, the board would have to damn well make sure they replace them with like for like players. Arguably our best when they’re on form. Stupid decision IMO if we do let them go. #WHUFC
