The 45-year-old, who has been linked with the Everton job for months now, was said to have interviewed with the Hammers' hierarchy with his agent, Jorge Mendes, in London on Monday as that club considered alternatives to keeping David Moyes on board as boss.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the sportswear tycoon said: "Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him".
