La Liga outfit in frame for prestige friendly

West Ham are in discussions with Athletico Bilbao to provide the opposition for the prestige pre-season friendly at the London Stadium in August.

The club was initially looking at Lazio as suitable opponents but that fell by the wayside when Bournemouth clinched a deal with the Serie A outfit.

Now we understand that although no final decision has been made, Bilbao are among the front runners to bring their squad to London for the fixture on Saturday August 3.

Other names in the frame are believed to be Lyon and Marseilles but with Director of Football Mario Husillos and vice chairman Karren Brady doing the negotiating, the Spanish outfit now look the most realistic option for the game.

Husillos has widespread contact across Spain and Bilbao – who finished eighth in the league last season – would be decent opponents for the Hammers.

Nothing is written in tablets of stone at this stage of proceedings but the club expect to make a decision in the near future.

Just so you know in Bilbao they would prefer an Estrella Galicia from their neighbours along the north coast rather than the ubiquitous San Miguel...

It was with Etxeberria, who was also a quality player back in the day. He's now their B team manager.

Aduriz is one of the best first goalscorer bet options of all time, shame he's now about 38!!

Got a lot of time for them and their policies.

Box office game???

Course it isn't, but who cares as they're only for the purpose of fitness anyway.
