(#22.4m) into some Chinese Super League club, considered to become Shanghai SIPG, after Manuel Pellegrini advised the board to allow the Austrian forwards depart. Arnautovic advised West Ham this week he wished to be permitted to proceed to China and, even though the club originally told him to honor the contract extension he signed in Januarythey have since come to the conclusion that maintaining him could have a negative impact on squad morale. Pellegrini is angry with the 30-year-old along with the participant’s teammates think it’d be better if he had been marketed whenever possible.
West Ham refused a bid in the region of 19m to get Arnautovic on Tuesday, deeming that figure insulting, and originally expected to take a tough line with a participant who has scored 11 goals in each of his two seasons in the club. Yet there’s an endorsement that Arnautovic, that had been signed for a first #20m in Stoke City 2 decades back, has come to be a disruptive effect in the dressing area and West Ham are anticipated to take Shanghai’s enhanced offer of $25m. West Ham feel badly disappointed by Arnautovic’s behavior in prison for a move six months when they refused to give him a transfer to a club in China, considered to be Guangzhou Evergrande, at which he had been provided a Student contract value over #40m.
Arnautovic ended up signing a new deal, stating that he wanted”to put a stop” into the speculation over his future. The arrangement contained a pay increase, together with Arnautovic’s salary of #120,000 per week which makes him the squad’s second-highest earner, and at a gesture of goodwill West Ham consented to add a yearly #40m buyout clause. West Ham have a fractious relationship with Arnautovic’s brother and representative, Danijel, who stoked the flames with provocative remarks on Tuesday. “He is not a cow or a horse that you bring to advertise,” he explained. “He is an extremely gifted footballer who’s only being used by West Ham. He is only a few to them.” The choice to allow Arnautovic depart will induce West Ham to quicken their hunt for a new striker, particularly as they’ve sold Lucas Pérez into Alavés and published Andy Carroll on a free transfer.
