How Long for Tevez & Mascherano?
Flamengo vice-president Kleber Leite is due to meet with Kia Joorabchian tomorrow. Leite has admitted to being interested in West Ham's two Argentinian players
"If you are asking me if I will ask about the two of them (Tevez and Mascherano), we will ask about them. It would be illogical if we meet Kia and didn't try to find out about their situation."
Flamengo are only the latest in a long line of clubs that seem keen on Tevez and Mascherano. Now that Joorabchian's attempt to take over West Ham seems to be dead in the water and Alan Pardew's attempts to integrate the players into the first team squad seems to be unsuccessful there is an obvious doubt about how long Joorabchian will keep them at Upton Park. Tevez in particular has a history of creating trouble when he hasn't been a first choice pick and Joorabchian will obviously be unprepared to see two of his prize assets dwindle in value on the West Ham bench.
Many West Ham fans probably expected the two players to last only a season at West Ham, what price now for a January exit?
