West Ham could pull off a major coup by signing Argentines Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano on year-long loans.

Im with Sam, what a farkin joke, Tevez and Mash have Chelsea, Arsenal and Man U afte rthem and thats just in the EPl never mind the Italian etc clubs that would want them, very strange move, its obviously down to the company that hold their rights or summat, West Ham obv said they wouldnt make money off their names or summat whereas Man U etc would want to do that sorta thang

Its only on a year long loan. I think they just want a taste of the premiership before a big club pays a load of money for them so they can avoid being huge flops.

Skysports news has just said that the signing of the two are on PERMANENT DEALS, Cannot believe it myself, I thought that a season long loan was amazing, but they have certainly got a good deal if it is true that they have come on permanent deals. Its got something to do with the company MSI, who own the rights to the two players. I heard that they are wanting to take over West ham or something, thats why they have offered the players to them. :yuck:

West ham will make a lotta money out of it aswell, there are even speculation that they might not have even payed a single penny for the two. It will be interesting to see if the two players had a say in where the wanted to go, cannot wait for the press conference, t'will be interresting. I am disappointed being a Man Utd fan aswell, wouldn't have minded seeing them here, but, atleast they are in the prem and not at Chelsea.

MSI Ltd apparently tried to takeover West Ham last season so they must like the club or atleast have a big stake in the club already. So sounds like they are just taking 2 of their prize assets into the best league into the world.

Can't wait to see Tevez turn up for West Ham though :eek:

Mascherano isn't that exciting though really. He is a good player don't get me wrong. But there are loads of players who can do the job he does where as Tevez is something special.

Sorry but if you don't notice what Makelele does you're an idiot because nobody shuts up about him. How can you be the unsung hero if all you get throughout a match is a good bumming.

i know what he means though

his job for chelsea is quite under-rated and you dont really notice the amount of running and covering and the cleaning up and tackles he makes throughout a game and i think mascherano will be similar

major wtfage.

They're probably only there cos of this stupid MSI group who 'own the players rights'. I think had their decison been entirely independent,tehy would not have moved there. Anyone suspect Roman involvment seeing as he has shares in Corinthians??

I do know that there's rumours he has a stake in them, no wonder Man u and Arsenal would of had to pay loads for them two and West ham get them on the cheap it seems like to then probs sell off to chelsea, or make money for west ham themselves seeing as MSI own some shares in the club.
