Earlier on today, it was reported that Red Bull were preparing a £200m bid for West Ham. 2 different stories have now come out of the club within 20 minutes of each other, from both owners, both disputing each other.

First came David Gold's tweet, stating that he was "unaware of any communication" from the Austrian company.

Jack Sullivan then followed up saying the story was "out of date" and that they had "turned down £650m" in August before reiterating his Father's stance that they had no desire to sell the club.

Both could technically be correct however it's unlikely that David Gold wouldn't have been made aware of any bid from Red Bull. It is also possible that the bid Jack Sullivan is speaking of was not from Red Bull but another party. We have asked for clarification and will update you if Jack replies.

How do you feel about the possibility of a Red Bull bid? Should they have accepted £650m? Would you be happy if Red Bull did take over West Ham?
