West Ham United are a club in crisis and the owners, David Sullivan and David Gold, are being attacked in the media by Sporting CP's president Nuno Saraiva.

Slaven Bilic has lost each of his first three Premier League games of the season and appears to be in serious danger of being sacked.

The West Ham owners were hilariously labelled "dildo brothers" following the collapse of William Carvalho's reported €35m transfer to the Hammers.

Speaking to Sporting TV in Portugal, Saraiva said: “Where is it? Proof? Now, approaches, for sure.

"I've had them for almost the whole squad: West Ham supporters call Mr. David Sullivan and his brother, the Dildo Brothers...

"These messengers, these offended virgins, the president of West Ham... we must know the truth!"

Sporting CP say they received no offer from West Ham but proof emerged online on Wednesday evening suggesting Sullivan did indeed submit a bid.

"Mr Sullivan has a duty to prove what he says," Saraiva said. "For this reason, Sporting Clube de Portugal challenge him to publicly show the proposals he says have been made, as well as the evidence that Sporting CP has received them."

Likely leaked by the club, Sky Sports shared screenshots of the two transfer bids sent by e-mail to Sporting CP.

One of the add-ons offered in an attempt to sweeten the deal was a clause in case West Ham qualified for the Champions League.

They even attempted to force Sporting's hand by suggesting they would "borrow" a player from PSG instead.

West Ham's tragic bids were being shared all over social media.

Fans on Twitter react

Marko Arnautovic, Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez, Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta all joined the club over the summer but it will be remembered as yet another embarrassing transfer window by the fans.

Bilic's position appears to be in real danger and Monday night's fixture against Huddersfield Town looks to be crucial if he intends to keep his job.
