League May Block Tevez Move

The Premier League are saying that any money that Manchester United pay for Carlos Tevez must go to West Ham. After the disciplinary commission fined West Ham the club said they had torn up the offending agreement.

Sky Sports say that the league are planning to keep a close eye on the deal to see that West Ham keep their promise that they own the player's registration.

One outcome of this could be West Ham and MSI battling it out in the courts to decide who really owns the player's registration.

Another possible outcome, suggested by Sporting Life, would be for West Ham to be paid a transfer fee and then agree a compensation figure with Joorabchian for breaching contracts with his company Media Sports Investments (MSI) when they terminated those agreements following their £5.5million fine in April for breaching Premier League rules.

Sporting Life also say United and Joorabchian are expected to agree a complex deal, in excess of £30million, over the next 36 hours where Manchester United will not initially be buying Tevez outright. They say West Ham chairman Eggert Magnusson gave his permission for Joorabchian to enter negotiations with other clubs three weeks ago. However West Ham are understood to not be receiving any of the fee which is where the Premier League will step in.
