West Ham chase £100k a week star
David Sullivan yesterday claimed he has offered a “special player” a £100,000 contract to move to West Ham.
The new Hammers co-owner admitted this week the club are £110million in debt, but said he he would be willing to pay out big wages to one “exceptional” signing.
Sullivan said: “We've offered £100,000-a-week to a player today and we are still not sure we are going to get him. That was a very special player.
“There's no transfer fee involved and he's got the choice of almost every club in Europe. He has played at the highest level.
“He's down to three clubs and West Ham are the only English club still in the hunt for him.”
Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has been linked with a move to Upton Park.
