Paqueta Transfer : Legal Action a Possibility


West Ham midfielder Lucas Paqueta‘s potential summer transfer to Manchester City is shrouded in controversy due to an ongoing FA investigation into alleged betting rule violations.

The 26-year-old Brazilian maintains his innocence and has reportedly cooperated fully with the investigation, even submitting his electronic devices for examination. Despite this, the FA’s slow progress has left Paqueta’s future uncertain.

Manchester City remain very interested in acquiring Paqueta and see him as a key target for manager Pep Guardiola.

With Paqueta’s strong desire to leave and City’s persistent interest, West Ham might struggle to retain the midfielder.

According to HITC, Paqueta’s representatives are prepared to take legal action against the FA if they attempt to block a potential transfer to City. The slow pace of the investigation and lack of clear evidence are raising questions about its legitimacy.

While the FA investigation is a significant hurdle, Paqueta’s intent and City’s interest still suggest a summer transfer is probable.

    If we can get £85 million for him, sell him, blows too hot and cold for me. We must keep Bowen, Kudus and Alvarez.

  • Hammeroo says:

    Paqueta is a very talented player but he has an on field discipline problem which Moyes has seemingly done little to chastise him for. Then again, there are several others who fall into the same category. Alvarez and Emerson were missing from the Leverkusen 2nd leg because of it. Even Antonio has his moments. I get it that it’s the competitive nature but unnecessary rants at the referee are pointless. Perhaps our coaches would be hypocrites to lecture them because they are no better, as could be seen in last night’s game!
