City’s first offer for Paqueta is rejected, the Brazilian has an exit clause

Lucas Paqueta will remain at West Ham United, despite interest from Manchester City.

In fact, the current champion of England made an offer of 70 million euros, but this offer did not satisfy West Ham.

The 25-year-old has played 41 official matches with the West Ham jersey, scoring five goals and assisting in seven others.

“The Hammers” will not accept this offer, as they want to earn much more from his sale.

Fabrizio Romano has announced that the Brazilian midfielder has a release clause from West Ham, but this clause will only come into force from the summer of 2024.

In case a team wants to transfer the Brazilian, then from the summer of 2024 his release clause is 85 million pounds (98.5 million euros).

It remains to be seen whether City will now increase their bid for the Brazilian star, or will look at other targets.
