Spanish full back wants Premier League move.
Michel Salgado is keen on trying his luck in England with West Ham United after leaving Real Madrid, and he could potentially replace Lucas Neill at Upton Park, according to a report in The People.
The 33-year-old left the Santiago Bernabeu after more than a decade last week, stating that he feels he still has something to offer at the highest level.
Rather than move to another club in the Primera Division, the Spain international would like to play in the Premier League and could join the Hammers.
Salgado has revealed his love of England in interviews, explaining that it came after a language exchange trip left a lasting impression and that he now visits London regularly. (Goal.com)
Never underestimate the power of having a former footballing legend as a boss. Gianfranco Zola is a man who is very much admired and it seems a boss that many top notch players are keen to play under, players such as Luca Toni for instance.
Now former Real Madrid veteran Michel Salgado appears to be very keen on plying his trade at Upton Park. After a decade at the Bernabeu the vastly experienced right back left the club earlier this month and is now looking for a new challenge and has set his sights on a move to the Premier League to complete his career.
During his time at the Spanish giants he has just about won it all, including four league title and two Champions League successes but one wonders just how much he would wish to be paid as money could be the one major stumbling block for the east London side who are in a financial pickle at the moment.
