Claret and Hugh claimed yesterday that Roberto is set to return to West Ham at the end of this month when his loan deal with Alaves expires. And some Hammers have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.

The Spaniard has proven to be a real disaster signing for West Ham since he was brought to the London Stadium by Manuel Pellegrini in the summer of 2019.
He played 10 games for West Ham, and let in 21 goals, keeping only one clean sheet in the process (Transfermarkt).
Roberto made two errors leading to goals for the opposition and made only one catch in eight Premier League games (premierleague.com).
The 34-year-old was swiftly shipped out to Alaves on loan by David Moyes in January.
And Football.London claimed last month that the Hammers will definitely sell Roberto at the end of the season, if they manage to find a buyer.
The Spaniard has struggled during his short spell in La Liga, and still hasn’t made an appearance.
Because of that, Claret and Hugh claims that Roberto will return to West Ham at the end of this month.
Even if the 34-year-old does come back to the London Stadium, however, he surely won’t be given any meaningful game-time.
Nevertheless, some Hammers fans reacted angrily on Twitter to the claims that Roberto could be returning from Alaves soon…
