West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini wanted to keep former number two goalkeeper Adrian at the club this season but the Spaniard rejected the club's advances before becoming a free agent.

The Spanish keeper wanted a number one spot on a team and chose to leave West Ham having rejected a contract offer from Maneul Pellegrini before the end of the 2018/19 campaign to stay with the club and battle Lukasz Fabianski for the jersey.

Jurgen Klopp's Champions League winners swooped in and plucked Adrian from the free agent market and the Spaniard saved a penalty s they won the Super Cup on Wednesday night against Chelsea in Istanbul.

Hammers manager Pellegrini was keen to see Adrian stay but alas, it turned out otherwise and the manager revealed he didn't have much input in Adrian's exit as he wanted the player to stay at the club.

Adrian wasn't having though and departed the club.

We offered Adrian to stay here to improve his contract.

An injury suffered to number one keeper Allisson saw Klopp forced to turn to Adrian and the Spaniard has already helped his new side to lifting a trophy, saving Tammy Abraham's crucial spot kick in Turkey after the match finished 2-2 at the end of extra time.
