When you've had the season that Dimitri Payet has had, bids from Europe's top teams are no longer a surprise, but it would be foolish for him to leave West Ham United.
First of all, this is not to say that Payet is moving away from East London, but the rumour mill has been kept turning thanks to the Frenchman's remarkable form the Les Blues in Euro 2016.
He has been the best player in the European Championship so far and is in the form of his career, so realistically he could slot in nicely at the likes of Real Madrid or Chelsea. However, he owes a lot to Slaven Bilic and Co. and would be far better off in the claret and blue.
Payet is 29-years-old, so he probably has three seasons at his peak remaining, and so surely he wants to start week in, week out.
Just look at what one season at West Ham has done for his career, particularly when it comes to his national side, as he has gone from someone not even in the squad to their key man at a major competition in the space of a few months.

He could walk out at the Olympic Stadium this August to a chorus of 'We've got Payet', rather than watch his Madrid team mates from the bench, waiting for an opportunity to impress.
