United’s 20legend is targeted by West Ham United, according to reports. Any truth in it?

The News of the World reported that West Ham were keen on the striker. I could even imagine that but why would Ole leave?

To emulate Teddy Sheringham who is still active at the age of 41? I don’t know. Footballers of the Sheringham-type are extremely rare and with all his knee injuries I very much doubt Ole would be able to keep on playing much longer. And while Teddy went on to have a good career after leaving United, he was never a regular first-team player at any of his clubs, though he played a very important role at all of them.

I believe Ole will never leave us. This is the club where he became a famous player, where he is a legend. Leaving United for another two years of football? I don’t think so.
