West Ham United insider ExWHUemployee has rubbished claims that the club have received an approach for Hammers boss David Moyes.

After losing 4-1 to Watford in their most recent Premier League game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finally lost the faith of the Manchester United board and was subsequently sacked.

In the aftermath, a report by Global 247 News stated that the current West Ham boss was wanted as a replacement for the Norwegian, but chairman David Sullivan refused to allow any kind of discussions to take place.

However, while discussing the report on The West Ham Way podcast, ExWHUemployee revealed that he has spoken to an inside source and was told there is no chance the story is true.

He said: There’s some reports that Manchester United had actually approached David Moyes to either be the interim manager for them or to actually be the full-time permanent manager – or interim with a view, if he does well, to be made permanent – and that they actually approached David Sullivan, and David Sullivan turned it down.

“It’s absolute rubbish. I spoke to a person that would definitely know the answer to this on that one. And his words were: ‘It’s absolute rubbish’. So we’ll go with it’s absolute rubbish. 

“Man United haven’t approached or made any form of enquiry for David Moyes.”

TIF Thoughts on David Moyes and West Ham…

With West Ham doing so well of late, it would seem unlikely that Moyes would want to abandon ship and join a struggling United team.

After all, the Hammers are currently six points and four places above the Red Devils in the Premier League table. To make the deal even more improbable, Moyes, of course, spent time in Manchester before.

Would David Moyes ever go back to Manchester United?

Yes

Yes

No

No

That spell did not exactly turn out for the best. The former Everton boss was sacked from his position just 10 months into the role, and with that in mind, it seems fanciful that Man United would go back in for him, let alone Moyes also wanting a return.

Saying all that, this is the manager’s second spell with West Ham…
