What will it take to pry the magic of Dimitri Payet from West Ham United?
No less than $65 million, and that might just get you the club’s attention.
Payet has been fantastic for club and (mostly) country, but that is a lot of money for a 29-year-old playmaker.

He’s been linked with Real Madrid amongst other locations, but earned a fresh contract with West Ham that is set to pay him through the 2020-21 season.
Here’s WHUFC joint chairman David Gold, from the BBC:
Premier League clubs don’t have to sell their top assets given the big money that comes just from being in the league. But $65 million is a lot of dough for an older player. Could they be tempted? It seems unlikely given the club’s very vocal and big ambitions.
