The whole Abramovich thing surrounding the deal (if there even is a deal) looks very, very dodgy though.

The hammers have pulled of the shocks of the season with those deals , i was shocked when i found out.

newcastle have united's rossi on loan till jan.

Amazing, tevez, & mascherano have been linked with Utd,& Arse, all summer then out of nowhere west ham sneak in, anyone smell a rat, read on,

Premiership: Keep an eye on MSI for future Chelsea deals
David Hulott


"The suspicion is that MSI is being used as a front to buy players in order to keep them out of the hands of Chelsea’s big-money rivals"

It might seem a little unlikely that the transfer of a player between an Argentinean and a Brazilian club could have any significant impact on the Premiership, but the recent deal that took Carlos Tevez from Boca Juniors to Corinthians for a fee of close to £12 million (a Brazilian record) is one that bears closer examination.

Corinthians, mired in debt after years of mismanagement and corruption (as is seemingly obligatory in Brazilian football), entered into a partnership with Media Sports Investments (MSI), a London-based investment group, in December 2004, with a 10-year deal between the two consisting of a £20 million investment from MSI in return for 51% of future profits.

The last month has seen Corinthians, with the help of their new-found backers, also recruit the services of other top players, with Carlos Alberto (scorer of Porto’s first goal in last season’s Champions League final), CSKA Moscow striker Vagner Love and centre-back Sebastian Dominguez from Argentine table-toppers Newell’s Old Boys all moving to Sao Paulo.

The President of MSI is 33-year old Kia Joorabchian (believed to be Iranian), but a certain Russian billionaire and an Israeli agent, Pini Zahavi, are both thought to be involved. Joorabchian has denied Abramovich’s involvement, although he admits that the Russian billionaire is a friend (they also have business links through another Russian billionaire, Boris Berezovsky). Abramovich has also denied having any financial interest in CSKA Moscow, but there is enough evidence to suggest this is dubious at best - a US$54 million three-year deal to have their shirts sponsored by Russian oil company Sibneft, of which Abramovich is still the major shareholder; club president Yevgeny Giner being another “close friend” of Abramovich; the recent controversial signing of Jiri Jarosik (CSKA coach Valeri Gazzayev was furious at the deal).

Whoever is behind the company (and it’s difficult to believe that the aforementioned speculation isn’t without some substance), MSI have wasted little time in making their mark elsewhere, having also signed the River Plate trio of Javier Mascherano (one of the most sought after young players in the game), Maxi Lopez and Lucho Gonzalez. The company are now negotiating where their three amigos will be playing their football in the immediate future, with Benfica having already signed Lopez and Gonzalez said to be interesting Porto.

The suspicion is that MSI is being used as a front to buy players in order to keep them out of the hands of Chelsea’s big-money rivals. This also enables them to farm players out to the likes of Corinthians, where the London club can monitor their progress, safe in the knowledge that they have first shout on their futures if and when they see fit to take them to Stamford Bridge. In doing so, Chelsea are taking the concept of feeder clubs to a whole new level.

Well done to West Ham although it could well be that the 2 players are simply being put in the shop window for the big boys to have a piece come january or next season.

I really hope Milner signs for us although the latest news is that he's travelled back to newcastle.

Oh dear, it seems the "special one" is a tad ticked off by the chrome domed pixie's decision to use gallas as part of the cole deal, behind his back, rumblings of discontent at the bridge perhaps.

yes, furious indeed.

what i don't get is why cole was ever mad at arsenal in the first place. what chelsea did was illegal, arsenal have every right to protect their players.

cole was/is under contract and neither he nor chelsea had permission to discuss a new deal. he should have respected that.

well naturally i'm a bit annoyed cos i'm not their greatest fan as you know lol. Also my team are bigger than west ham and have more money so we could have had them too.

But fair play to them, they have the players and all the big teams are annoyed.

Hopefully come september 10th at 3 o clock Olof Mellberg will have Tevez in his pocket all game

Well, United didn't do much in the market, but 1 piece of work I'm personally over the moon about is windy miller going to join Keano at Sunderland, never thought we'd find anyone daft enough to take him off our hands, maybe Keano's feeling sorry for us, & wanted to help the g$*£ers reduce Uniteds wage bill just a bit more, 16 out of OT since last season just 2 in,& yet people still think were in good shape, God help us when injuries kick in, balsa boy's due a long term lay off soon.

Arsenal wants to buy a very young player from the Sao Paulo Fc (Denilson Pereira Neves ).
How many English players has formed Arsenal in the last 10 years ?
Wenger is ruining English football.

But then ow many English players have left Arsenal for greater things?

Pennant, maybe. And probably Cole will do well at Chelsea as well. Otherwise there's a reason why John Halls is messing around at Stoke.

If there was an English player who was good enough to play at Arsenal, he'd play. That's why Ashley Cole managed to replace Silvinho in the first place.

And it's good business as well. Michael Carrick's a handy player, definitely, but worth 18 million? Not a chance. Wenger was reportedly interested in Curtis Davies but West Brom wouldn't hear of bids lower than 10m for him.

I've posted this article before, but it's well worth bringing up again.

The problem of English players more expensive than continental players is not new.
Manchester formed Beckham, Neville and co, Liverpool formed Owen, Gerard, Fowler and co.

When you buy young players like Reyes, Van Persil, Cesc, Senderos, etc. you have no ambition to form young English players.


'I would love to buy from the north of England, where they produce a lot of players'

There is no good young players in London ? Good players are only located in the north ?
