The season is not over by a long shot and West Ham’s Premier League status is by far from secure, but the Hammers are already planning to replace David Moyes.
It’s been a difficult few weeks for the club both on and off the field, with fans protesting against the club’s ownership in recent games, especially during the dismal 3-0 home defeat to Burnley.
To make matters, West Ham statistically have one of the toughest fixture lists of anyone in the bottom half of the table as they fight to prevent another relegation to the Championship and David Moyes’ second relegation in two years.
According to the Sun today, club officials have ‘put the feelers out’ to see if former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini would be interested in taking over at the London Stadium in the summer.
Pellegrini, who led City to the title in 2014, is now managing out in China with Hebei Fortune, and could be tempted with a return to the Premier League.
The Chilean was on the Hammers’ shortlist when Slaven Bilic left the London Stadium in November but could not be tempted to leave China.
