West Ham United have rejected an offer of around 400 million pounds to buy the club from an American consortium.
A group of US investors want to buy the London club but owners David Sullivan and David Gold value the club a lot higher than the reported offer.
West Ham fans are frustrated with Gold and Sullivan’s running of the club and they will be desperate for the takeover to go through.
It will be interesting to see if the US consortium returned with an improved offer to buy the club in the coming weeks.
Despite consistent investment West Ham have struggled to perform in the Premier League over the last few seasons and their managerial appointments have been quite mediocre as well.
Furthermore, the club’s decision to sell a talented young player like Grady Diangana prompted a furious backlash from the fans a few weeks ago.
Some of the players were furious with the decision as well and they took to Twitter to share their discontent. Players like Mark Noble, Jack Wilshere, Arthur masuaku were unhappy with the club’s decision to cash in on a prized young prospect.
West Ham barely managed to beat the relegation drop last year and it will be interesting to see how they perform in the League this year.
A club of West Ham’s stature should be having for a top-half finish but David Moyes has failed at all of his recent clubs and things are not looking encouraging for the former Everton manager right now.
It will be interesting to see if the West ham manager can turn things around at the club and guide the Hammers to a respectable Premier League finish this season.
