West Ham reportedly slapped a £100million price tag on Dimitri Payet’s head after receiving an enquiry for the midfielder.
The form of the France international since his arrival in east London last summer has caught the eye of several clubs, with Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid both reportedly taking an interest in the 29-year-old.
There was talk of West Ham putting a £60million price tag on Payet following his first season at the club after he scored 15 times and recorded 16 assists in all competitions.
Payet’s stock rose further with a string of impressive displays for France at Euro 2016, helping the host nation reach the final of the tournament.
The son of co-owner David Sullivan, Jack, has now revealed that one club did contact West Ham to enquiry how much it would cost to buy Payet and were told it would take a world-record £100million fee for the club to consider selling.
Sullivan told radio station PhoenixFM that the unnamed club did not come back again as the Hammers achieved their goal of scaring off any interested parties.
