This morning, speculation has emerged, on the social media network, that West Ham United could be selling Pedro Obiang.
After recruiting seven players already this summer at a cost and with perhaps a few more deals to be tied up, it’s probably only to be expected that the club has to sell to assist in balancing the books and complying with the Financial Fair Play Regulations.

Clearly, the midfielder has his fans, but, as is often the case, there are two sides to every story and in order to keep a balanced objective to the article, it’d be churlish to not use the following tweet;
