Joorabchian, the man who brokered the original deal to take Tevez and Argentina team-mate Javier Mascherano to Upton Park in August 2006, insists he is taking legal action against the Barclays Premier League club as a last resort.
Joorabchian, who is reported to be demanding £7.1million that he claims he is owed by West Ham, told Sky Sports News: "I´ve always said that this has not been a very open-book case and I think a lot speculation which has gone around has damaged us personally throughout the process, which I´ve not been happy about."
