can it really be true?
has alan pardew pulled of one of the most staggering signings in the history of the premierships? tevez and mascherano on loan for a season?
if they are at west ham, that’s incredible for all at upton park and will be a major blow to man utd and arsenal. something doesn’t seem right about it though, why go on loan to west ham for a season? if corinthians were willing to let them go on loan (perhaps to put them in the market in europe) surely they’d want them to go to a club looking to sign them permanently. and if tevez and mascherano are going to try to get themselves into european football, why west ham?
i’ve got a feeling there’s more to this one, my theory, they both want to play in italy or at real madrid but are waiting a year to see what happens to clubs like AC Milan and Juve, and whether Real madrid can get back to their best. watch this space.
also, how much involvement has this Media Sports Investments (MSI) got to do with this. media reports are suggesting they own the right to the two players (whatver that means) and have arranged the transfer. the company is based in london, any coincidence? im very confused.
ps: im back – the turze
[EDIT – Since Martyn posted this, the deal has gone through with both players being sold to West Ham from MSI for an undisclosed fee – Peter]
