West Ham chairman David Sullivan has revealed that star player Dimitri Payet is worth £100 million according to the Mirror.
Sullivan also underlined that Payet is under no circumstance available for sale despite widespread interest in the France intentional.
Speaking on the set of his new movie, the Hatton Garden Heist, Sullivan was quoted by the Mirror as saying: “It is the TV money. It is also clubs in Europe with Chinese money.
“But Payet is not for sale. Just because a big club wants him, tough luck. He is worth £100million. Even at his age.”
Sullivan also stated that Payet is the best free-kick taker in the world and praised the 29-year-old’s display for the Hammers last season.
“He’s only done what he has done at West Ham all season. He’s a very talented player. He’s probably the best free-kick taker in the world on current form,” he added.
Payet has been closely linked with a move to Italian giants Inter Milan who are expected to spend heavily over the summer after being taken over by new owners.
The East London based outfit signed Payet from Marseille last summer for just £10.7 million and he went on to earn himself a nomination for the PFA Player of the Year award.
The France intentional earned himself a new five-year deal last February which the Mirror reports as being worth £125,000 per-week.
Payed enjoyed an impressive European Championship campaign scoring three goals and providing two assists for the hosts.
