£30 million to Sheffield United

Sheffield United, currently 15th in the Championship, are now a little richer. Despite losing their appeal to overturn relegation during the 2006-07 campaign, the Blades requested that the League further investigate the Carlos Tévez affair.

Both Carlos Tévez and Javier Mascherano were bought by West Ham United from Brazilian club, Corinthians for £12 million. The bizarre transfer, along with the Argentianians’ ineligibility to play would have been enough to see West Ham relegated. However, the Premier League decided to only fine the East London club £5.5 million.

But the arbitration panel has awarded in favor of the Blades, who’s no longer being managed by Neil Warnock. West Ham, who officially sold Tévez to Manchester United for £35 million will now need to compensate the Blades with £30 million.
