It’s being reported that West Ham have rejected a third bid for Craig Bellamy from Manchester City and also a renewed bid from Tottenham. However, by officially commenting on Lucas Neill yesterday on the club website and saying that he is not for sale, they have made a bit of a rod for their own backs, because now we will all be questioning why they haven’t made a similar comment about Bellamy.
It seems to me that neither the manager nor the club want to sell him (and nor do I), but if a silly bid comes in they will. I suspect £15 million would clinch it, and let’s face it, who would turn down that kind of money for a 29 year old? However, we are only 15 days away from the end of the transfer window. Not long to get a replacement, and we would need a replacement. Tristan and Di Michele are just not good enough.
So, if we did end up selling Bellamy, who should we try to lure to Upton Park in his place?
