Russian billionaire Boris Berezovsky has denied having "any dealings connected to Carlos Tevez" or any involvement in money-laundering after it was reported in South America that a Brazilian judge had issued warrants for the arrest of Berezovsky and Tevez´s representative Kia Joorabchian.

The Brazilian authorities are reported to have instructed Interpol to carry out the arrest of Joorabchian, who is involved in negotiations for the sale of Tevez to Manchester United from West Ham, and Russian businessman Berezovsky. The warrants are reported to relate to money-laundering at Brazilian side Corinthians, of which Joorabchian´s company Media Sports Investment (MSI) is a majority investor.

Judge Fausto Martin de Sanctis reportedly ordered the club´s assets to be frozen and will also investigate international transfers conducted by the club, but Berezovsky, living in exile in London, is adamant the warrant is "an extension of the Kremlin´s politicised campaign against him" and has repeatedly denied any links to MSI.
