Pardew to Meet with Joorabchian to Discuss Argentines' Future
The Guardian, November 30th, 2006 5:19PM

MOST COMMENTED

January transfer season is nearly upon us, which means the next two months will be filled with a mixture of truth and rumors. While Shaun Wright-Phillips and Clint Dempsey will almost certainly make a January move in the EPL, it's anybody's guess what will happen to Argentine pair Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano. Now that Kia Joorabchian and friends have lost out in their bid to takeover West Ham United, the Argentines are the only thing keeping Joorabchian tied to the club. Since his stake is in two players who aren't playing much (or well), he surely has no reason for wanting them to stay at West Ham. Nor does it seem that Manager Alan Pardew or new owner Eggert Magnusson cares very much whether they stay or go. Pardew will meet with Joorabchian this week, where they are expected to discuss the Argentines' future at West Ham. The Guardian says Tevez and Mascherano have reportedly been offered to Atletico Madrid, which has been beset by long-term injuries to its midfield. If they do move, the talented duo clearly needs to be somewhere where they understand the language; Atletico also has a handful of their compatriots on its roster. Nevertheless, West Ham has instructed Tevez and Mascherano to play down any speculation linking them away from Upton Park. Said Tevez, recently: "For my pride, I will go on fighting, despite not playing two or three matches. I'm a guy who always fights and wants to be on the field always - until the end." When Tevez and Mascherano arrived at Upton Park nearly four months ago, some pundits declared the move made West Ham an instant title contender. That's hardly been the case: the pair have yet to score, and West Ham sits in 15th place in the Premier League table. Read the original story...
