West Ham midfielder transfer to Manchester City faces legal challenges amid FA investigation




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

Paqueta, who is 26 years old, has stated his innocence and has cooperated fully with the investigation, including submitting his electronic devices for examination.

The FA’s investigation has been slow, leaving Paqueta’s future uncertain. Despite this, Manchester City remains interested in signing Paqueta, seeing him as a key target for manager Pep Guardiola.


Paqueta’s desire to leave West Ham and City’s persistent interest in acquiring him could pose a challenge for the London club in retaining the midfielder.

Paqueta’s representatives are considering legal action against the FA if it tries to block the potential transfer to Manchester City.

The investigation’s slow progress and lack of clear evidence have raised questions about its legitimacy. Although the FA investigation presents a significant obstacle, Paqueta’s intention to leave and City’s interest suggest that a summer transfer could still be likely.
