Report lifts lid on extortionate Januzaj demands ahead of potential West Ham move


Report lifts lid on extortionate Januzaj demands ahead of potential West Ham move

Adnan Januzaj is keen to join West Ham United but is demanding a huge signing on fee and a large salary in order to do so.

That’s according to a report from Estadio Deportivo who claim that Januzaj is asking for a £5 million signing on fee and £5 million per year salary (£96k-a-week).

That’s an awful lot of money but his availability on a free transfer makes the Belgian’s demands easily attainable for West Ham.

Moyes also brought Januzaj to Sunderland on loan during his stint in charge of the Black Cats.

So it’s little wonder why Moyes may want to bring him to West Ham this summer, especially considering his availability on a free transfer…

Report outlines Januzaj demands

Estadio Deportivo claims that the 27-year-old attacker is demanding a signing on fee worth £5 million from any club that wishes to sign him.

Januzaj also wants around £96k-a-week.

That seems fair enough, considering the fact that he’s available on a free transfer.

In all fairness though, we just can’t see the West Ham owners laying out that kind of cash on the Belgium international.

The ex-Manchester United ace is a good footballer with impressive technique but he is by no means a world beater.

We believe that the 27-year-old would actually be a decent acquisition for the Hammers.

There are far better players out there available though.

And Januzaj’s demands will most like lead David Moyes elsewhere in his search for a right winger in the summer transfer window in my opinion.
