According to a report by Eurosport, via West Ham Central, the Irons are displaying an interest in Manchester United duo Nemanja Matic and Phil Jones – prompting much horror from many supporters on social media.
Given the financial uncertainty caused by coronavirus, combined with West Ham’s desire to secure Lingard on a permanent deal and the signing of a new striker (Claret & Hugh), supporters have fumed in response to this alleged interest.
As Jones (29) and Matic (32) near the twilight phase of their careers and play in positions arguably now well stocked by West Ham, it’s little wonder Irons fans really aren’t impressed with this update.
Find a flavour of their verdicts from social media down below.
West Ham fans horrified by Jones and Matic claim
“Oh god no thanks”
“No and no”
“I just threw up”
“Sorry but that’s catastrophe.”
“Should be as fast as a VAR check for a Man U hand ball.. check complete, no thank you”
“I hope not!”
