‘We want Pogba’: West Ham fans react to cheeky demands to Manchester United over Issa Diop

The Hammers have told the Red Devils which player they would like in exchange for the Senegalese defender.

West Ham United will demand that Manchester United offer Anthony Martial as part of any deal for central defender Issa Diop, according to The Independent.

It seems likely that West Ham will want in excess of £60 million for the ex-Toulouse man, with the Londoners already rejecting an offer of £40 million plus a player.

His performances have caught the eye and United are keen to make him a part of their defensive rebuilding process this summer.

If anything, by asking for Martial they are simply implying that Diop isn’t for sale.

It is an audacious request from a Hammers point of view but shows that they are not in the market to sell their top players.

Martial would naturally be a class signing for West Ham.

Last season he netted 12 goals for the Red Devils and can play either up front or out wide.

It does seem unlikely that Martial will rock up at the London Stadium but that hasn’t stopped their fans enjoying this moment on Twitter.

Some are getting excited at the potential new signing, whilst others are just enjoying their club appearing to wind United up.
