Manchester City's Ambitious Pursuit of Lucas Paquetá Hits Roadblock as West Ham Rejects £70M Bid – Latest Updates!

Manchester City’s pursuit of Lucas Paquetá has taken an interesting turn, as the club approached West Ham United with a verbal discussion centered around a substantial £70 million package.

The move for Lucas Paquetá is being perceived as a distinct endeavor from any potential developments regarding Bernardo Silva’s future. Manchester City is reportedly growing more confident about retaining the services of the talented Portuguese international. The club’s multifaceted approach to its midfield composition underscores its ambition to maintain and strengthen its squad.

Lucas Paquetá, a highly regarded talent, is enthusiastic about joining Manchester City. However, West Ham United has shown no intention of accepting the £70 million fee that was discussed in recent talks. The situation is further complicated by the fact that Paquetá’s release clause, valued at £85 million, is not applicable during this summer transfer window. The release clause is set to become effective from June 2024.
