In the deal that keeps on taking, Carlos Tevez and his transfer to Manchester United is stirring up even more controversy. Apparently West Ham still owe slave master Kia Joorabchian the huge sum of £7.1m and the agent is prepared to take the Hammers to court in order to get his money back. The Guardian gives us more details:
“In papers lodged with the high court Joorabchian alleges he paid the club £2m for West Ham to release Tevez’s registration for the transfer to Old Trafford and that West Ham agreed orally to return the money, plus costs, amounting to £2.6m. He says he has not been paid that money or a further £4.5m for separate dealings over Tevez. The league had insisted West Ham be paid when Tevez moved to United. West Ham have said they will mount a ‘vigorous’ defence of their position and deny Joorabchian’s allegations.”
West Ham fans, Tevez kept you up but did the terms of his acquisition (and sale) leave a lot to be desired?
