Just like yesterday, the Portuguese press has some interesting updates on William Carvalho’s situation on Friday.
And it seems things are going well for West Ham to get the player.
There’s kind of a consensus today that West Ham’s bid was of €30m, and that’s what O Jogo reports.
They, just like The Telegraph, claim there’s a still a club official sorting things out in Lisbon.
Record comes up with the most surprising story, claiming that although the midfielder was named for the weekend’s match-day squad, he’s unlikely to play.
Carvalho hasn’t been training due to a shoulder injury, or at least that’s the club’s official reason.
But actually, according to the paper, it’s the ‘contractual issues’ that are stopping him.
The midfielder would have a West Ham offer on the table, with a five year deal and a salary of €2.5m per season.
It’s claimed that West Ham weren’t intimidated by Sporting’s €40m demands, and should make a new bid in the coming days.
This time with €35m upfront and €5m in bonuses.
Last but not least, Diário de Notícias claims that William Carvalho has accepted West Ham’s offer, and will soon ask Sporting to let him make the move.
With that many different sources, we can only believe that things are really moving, and Carvalho is finally close to his Premier League dream.
