West Ham fans have been reacting with embarrassment after the club seemingly announced legal action against Sporting Lisbon through co-owner David Sullivan’s son, via Twitter.
The Hammers were chasing a deal for William Carvalho throughout the summer, but the deal fell through late in the window with the clubs failing to agree in tough negotiations.
The club reportedly made a late bid on transfer deadline day to reignite the deal – but co-owner David Sullivan claimed in a statement that it was too late in the day to sort out a medical to bring the midfielder to the London Stadium.
However, Sporting Lisbon president Bruno de Carvalho has claimed that no such bid was received – and there wasn’t a single offer for their player.
No, co-owner David Sullivan’s son has taken to Twitter to seemingly announce that West Ham are planning legal action against the communications director of Sporting Lisbon – claiming a written offer was made for William Carvalho.
However, West Ham fans have not taken this news well.
Many supporters are embarrassed by the way legal proceedings have seemingly been announced – and have directed their anger towards David Sullivan Jr.
