Sullivan- Bilic turned down chance to sign Renato Sanches and Grzegorz Krychowiak

In a startling revelation, West Ham owner David Sullivan has revealed that manager Slaven Bilic turned down the option to sign Renato Sanches and Grzegorz Krychowiak at the end of the recently concluded summer transfer window.

Sanches was eventually loaned to Swansea (Swans boss Paul Clement was Carlo Ancelotti’s No.2 for several years) while Krychowiak signed for West Bromwich Albion, both clubs the Hammers would expect to finish above this season. However West Ham’s own pursuit of William Carvalho went awry, with Sporting director also calling Sullivan a liar on Facebook.

However Sullivan has said Bilic’s top four transfer targets were all achieved by the owners (Hart, Zabaleta, Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez)

West Ham have lost all three of their league games so far, and will take on Huddersfield after the international break.

Fan opinion seems to be of the club’s owners throwing Bilic under the bus, with several memes on Twitter pointing to it.
