West Ham manager speculation continues

Italian outlet Roma 24 have run a new report on Jose Mourinho and his situation at AS Roma. They repeat the claim that West Ham approached the Portuguese manager, and that he rejected them, the website now claim that the London club had put forward a three-year deal worth around €10m (£8.8m)  per year, which was rejected almost three weeks ago.

Senior club sources deny any approach and insist Mourinho has never been on their minds as a potential succession plan for David Moyes

In another Italian report  CalcioMercatoWeb (via Sport Witness) claims West Ham have “decided” to make their move for Roberto Mancini, calling the club one of the “most ambitious” in the top flight in the process.

The Azzurri coach has a “temptation” to move back to England and “leave his mark” again following his hugely successful spell at Manchester City, but would require a significant salary. Mancini would need to be offered “at least” €10m (£8.8m) per year as well as a “clear project” of where the club wants to go.

Manager-less Leicester City wasted no time in trying to lure Graham Potter to the midlands but the former Chelsea boss has turned them down, according to talkSPORT.

Another article in Football 365 also suggests “Potter will ‘certainly be a candidate’ for the Hammers position if Moyes leaves in the summer”.

A club source has made that sound unlikely by saying “Potter has been flattered by Brighton’s computer analysis which is run by the owner, and it is that system which buys all the players.” adding who is to say that Potter is any better than David Moyes.

Newcastle United Eddie Howe was speaking at his pre-match press conference yesterday and praised the West Ham manager by telling reporters: “David Moyes is an outstanding manager with huge experience. They have suffered this season”.
