The West Ham United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to seeing their team in the Olympic Stadium next season and the summer has been spent searching for a stellar addition to the squad.
Some of the Hammers contingents have been left astonished at some of the names linked with a move to East London and the prospects look good for the club.
Our landlord has some news courtesy of the Essex Chronicle, who are reporting that the Hammers now face competition from Manchester United to secure the services of Real Madrid superstar James Rodriguez.
The Colombian forward is set to leave the Spanish giants this summer with West Ham keen on a £54 million move for the player, in what would be a real statement of intent for the club.
One Manchester United fan is sat in the Tavern with a pint of the landlord’s real ale and he thinks that the choice between the two clubs is a no brainer for Rodriguez, stating that the Real Madrid player would be a great addition to the United squad.
West Ham fans, can you trump Manchester United and sign Rodriguez? Would he work in the West Ham system?
