Tevez dispute close to settlement

Is this ridiculous affair finally coming to an end?

Maybe now Joorabchian will sweeten the pot a little bit and throw a bone to West Ham. Or maybe not.

Tevez dispute close to settlement

The dispute over the future of Carlos Tevez may be decided out-of-court in the next couple of days, sources close to West Ham told BBC Sport.

The player’s representative Kia Joorabchian issued a writ to West Ham in an attempt to secure his proposed £30m move to Manchester United.

But with no date set for a high court hearing it is thought that both parties could come to an agreement.

Joorabchian’s companies claim they own the economic rights to the 23-year-old.

BBC Sport’s football reporter Nigel Adderley said: “The difference in the amount of compensation each side believes would be fair could still leave Tevez in limbo at the start of the season.

“The player’s advisors MSI have indicated they’re only prepared to pay West Ham £100,000 – as was agreed in the original contract which the club then ripped up at the Premier League’s insistence to end the third-party ownership of Tevez and allow him to carry on playing last season.

“But the club believe they’re entitled to far more to release his registration which would allow him to move to Manchester United.

“Plenty of compromise could lead to a speedy outcome but if it does end up in court, the striker could be sidelined for several months.”

Tevez’s transfer to the Premier League champions has stalled over who will be paid the £30m transfer fee.

Third-party ownership of football players is common in South America but was almost unheard of in England until West Ham signed Tevez and fellow Argentine Javier Mascherano, who has since moved to Liverpool, in August 2006.

West Ham ripped up an agreement they had with Joorabchian – which broke Premier League rules – and they now claim any deal with United can only go ahead with their say-so.

The Football Association and the Premier League had asked Fifa to rule on the matter, but the world governing body recommended it should go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

West Ham were fined £5.5m in April for breaking Premier League rules over third-party ownership when they signed Tevez.

They were allowed to continue playing him after satisfying the Premier League that the third-party agreement with Joorabchian had been torn up.

Tevez is registered as a West Ham player but Joorabchian claims he still owns the striker’s economic rights and is therefore entitled to the transfer fee.

30-07-2007 | Se endurece el tironeo por Carlos Tevez

West Ham pretende seis millones de libras para desprenderse de los derechos federativos y Joorabchian elevará el caso a un tribunal para poder venderlo al Manchester. El Apache podría quedar parado hasta enero.

La novela que tiene como protagonista a Carlitos Tevez sigue sumando capítulos y nadie sabe – por ahora – si tendrá un final feliz.

El West Ham y el poderoso Manchester United vienen dirimiendo desde hace semanas en dónde jugará el delantero argentino. Y según las últimas informaciones que llegan desde Inglaterra, ahora la pelota la tiene el empresario Kia Jorabchian, dueño del grupo que compró a Tevez

Todo comenzó cuando los Diablo Rojos decidieron romper el chanchito y ofrecieron por Carlitos una suma escalofriante: 60 millones de dolares. La cifra le hizo brillar los ojos al iraní, que cuanto antes quiere venderlo al equipo de Sir Alex Fergusson.

El problema apareció cuando los Hammers, dueños de los derechos federativos del goleador hasta 2010, decidieron ponerse firmes y hacer todo lo posible para que no se lo lleven, exigiendo el cumplimiento del contrato.

Pero, se sabe, por dinero baila el mono. Y también Eggert Magnusson, presidente del West Ham, quien puso como condición para liberar a Tevez que a su club le paguen seis millones de libras por la adquisición de los derechos federativos.

Si bien todavía la respuesta de Joorabchian no llegó, el empresario presentaría el caso en un tribunal ordinario, lo que alargaría la espera. Esto, sumado a que el libro de pases en Inglaterra cierra el 31 de agosto, podría derivar en que Tevez quede colgado hasta enero.

Serán horas decisivas. Todas las partes se mantienen firmes y el jugador argentino espera resoluciones, sabiendo que en el West Ham dejó una imagen inmejorable y que está en el momento justo para pegar el salto a un grande del Viejo Continente.
