According to an exclusive report from French publication Foot Mercato, West Ham ace Lucas Paqueta has already ‘said yes’ to a move to Manchester City in the summer transfer window.

It is said that the 25-year-old Hammers midfielder has been ‘seduced’ by the Premier League and Champions League winners.

Paqueta recently took to Twitter to deny claims that he’s unhappy at West Ham under David Moyes and wants to leave.

However, it’s clearly a different story once Manchester City come in for you…

Fresh report claims Lucas Paqueta has now agreed to join Manchester City

Manchester City are believed to be ready to pay around £70 million for the Brazilian midfielder (The Guardian).

But according to Foot Mercato, Paqueta has actually already agreed to join Man City this summer.

Losing the South American to Manchester City would be a massive blow for West Ham to stomach, especially considering the fact that Declan Rice and Gianluca Scamacca recently left as well.

Paqueta will be absolutely pivotal to everything good that the Hammers do this season and beyond.

Having said all of that, if Manchester City really want to sign Lucas Paqueta, it will be almost impossible to stop him from moving to the Etihad.

If the Hammers manage to get £80 million plus for the former Lyon man, it would be decent business. The problem I see though, is that we won’t have any adequate replacements lined up for him.

And that’s when selling the Brazilian will become a big problem for West Ham in my opinion.
