Report: West Ham now aim to beat Manchester United and earn £231,000 a week

David Moyes’ West Ham United are now in contention with Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United for Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka, while the Hammers intensify their search for a replacement for Declan Rice.

Accordingly Sky GermanyWest Ham United and Manchester United are interested in signing Leon Goretzka from Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window.

The report said Bundesliga champions Bayern are ready to sell the German midfielder for €40-50m (£34.35m-42.93m).

West Ham have determined the amount of £231,000 a week (SalarySport) midfielder as a potential replacement for Declan Rice.

The Hammers recently sold England midfielder Rice to London and Premier League rivals Arsenal.

West Ham United could struggle to sign Manchester United target Leon Goretzka

In our opinion, West Ham United are unlikely to be able to sign Leon Goretzka from Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window.

We don’t think the Germany international will be interested in a move to West Ham, especially if Manchester United are also interested in him.

Yes, the Hammers won the UEFA Europa Conference League last season and will play in the UEFA Europa League in 2023/24, but Goretzka is used to winning big trophies on a regular basis.

In his time at FC Bayern, the 28-year-old has won the Bundesliga five times, the DFB Cup twice and the UEFA Champions League once.

We don’t think the midfielder would find the prospect of leaving Bayern and joining a club unlikely to even finish in the top four of the Premier League next season very alluring.

Goretzka made 22 starting XI appearances and five substitute appearances for FC Bayern last season in the Bundesliga.

The midfielder scored three goals and provided two assists in those games.

In seven starts and two substitutes for Bayern last season, Goretzka scored two goals and provided four assists.
