Moyes clashes with West Ham board as he doesn’t want the signing of £40m star

Posted by

West Ham United are keen to move in the transfer market and bring in a key attacking reinforcement this summer to ease the burden on Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio. It appeared yesterday that they might be on the verge of doing so, as reports broke that the club were close to agreeing a £38.7m deal with Villarreal winger Arnaut Danjuma.

The caveat to that news was that they were yet to discuss terms with Danjuma himself, which could be a sticking point. However it has now emerged that manager David Moyes is less enamoured with Danjuma than the rest of the decision makers at West Ham.

According to 90min, Moyes is intent on bringing in Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard to the club instead, as per West Ham Zone. Lingard was at West Ham on loan for the second half of the 2020-21 season and impressed during his spell in London.

If it plays out that one comes and not the other, it will show the true nature of some of the power dynamics behind the scenes at West Ham. While Danjuma is likely regarded as the more talented player, there’s a truth to the idea that it makes little sense to bring in a player the manager does not want.

  1. There is and has been rumblings at the club between GSB. and managers for years this just goes to show that the owners don’t give a flying f. About players and team. Only to spend as little as possible And Moyes is. Just a yes man yet again. Same as last time he was manager at the club

  2. Let Moyes choose the players he wants because him who knows what he wants from Lingaard period.

      1. Unfortunately Tracey the board do have a right, because it is their money, but equally if they employ a manager they should learn to delegate and let him get on with his job, because ultimately the manager stays in a job based on his decisions and nobody elses,

  3. Absolutely disgusting David moses hasn’t put a foot wrong at West ham by far the only reason they are where they are today is because of the manager and the team he is building the directors need to but out and leave the manager do his job its his lineup so it should be the manager who decides on which players are going to fit best in the current West ham team
    I really do hope the West ham board choose to back David moyes or they could risk losing a great manager to a team where the board will back him

  4. As long as we don’t scam our country 🤷
    Any country we scam shall pay 🥵
    Some thief’s called government still scam their country🇳🇬🤒

  5. Mo-yes is supposed to be a yes man. I don’t see why he is complaining. If the report is true then he is gradually learning to be a professional coach. I would have liked to have seen Ole do the same when he was at Man Utd.

  6. Bring in the youngster lingard. English players are always on cheaper wages anyway. Moyes is a genius
