Dalian Yifang coach Rafa Benitez has detailed how close he came to joining West Ham in the past.
The Spaniard, who revealed he came close to joining the Hammers in 2015 before eventually taking over at Real Madrid, insists he is happy in China.
"It was in the past, it's true that I was nearly there (at West Ham)," he said. "Then Real Madrid came, and I needed a couple of days to know exactly what was going on.
"Obviously I couldn't say no to Real Madrid, but it was a good time and it's a massive club.
"Everybody can see both teams (West Ham and Arsenal) have problems, but both are massive clubs and they will do well at the end."
