Man Utd target claims to have heard nothing about interest from Premier League giants

Marko Arnautovic insists he has “never heard anything” about a potential transfer away from West Ham, amid interest from Manchester United.

Sky Sports News still claim United are interested in signing the Austria international, however, the Hammers have no intention of selling Arnautovic unless they get their valuation of £50 million.

Every player has their own valuation regardless of what their current clubs has to say on the matter.

The 29-year-old moved from Stoke City to West Ham last summer for a club record £25 million, and somehow his price-tag has doubled. Perhaps that has something to do with four-years remaining on his contract, but it’s still a crazy amount of money to spend on a player to come in as a backup option.

And, that’s what he will be.

According to the Independent this week, Mourinho has prioritised the need for a backup striker over new left-back, baffling members of the club’s support.

Speaking to Sky Austria, Arnautovic said: “I am happy with my job. Whatever happens will happen. I’ve not heard anything.

“Even three weeks ago I haven’t heard anything. That’s why I cannot say anything about it. The only thing that bothers me is that I am in good health and that I am able to play football.”

When asked about his future, Arnautovic added: “I have a contract at West Ham – that’s all we have to talk about.”

Arnautovic scored 11 goals and registered six assists during his first season at West Ham.
