It seemed unbelievable when it was season long loans, but now the official announcement has been made that West Ham have actually sealed PERMANENT moves for Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano. The best part of the announcement was,
“The pair have been signed for an undisclosed fee and put pen to paper on permanent contracts with the Club this afternoon. All other aspects of the transfers will remain confidential and undisclosed.”
Conspiracy theorists are going nuts trying to figure this one out with an Media Sports Investments takeover, Roman Abramovich’s involvement, corruption and exchange of sexual favours being discussed. But the matter remains that Alan Pardew and whoever conducts West Ham’s transfer business need to be given a standing ovation at every ground they go to. Manchester United, Arsenal, and plenty of others must be wondering what the f**k happened.
Simply unbelievable. Let the gloating, deservedly, begin.
