According to numerous sources, West Ham United could be slapped with a Transfer Ban by Sporting Lisbon if their complaint regarding illegal approaches towards William Carvalho is upheld.

This is just another chapter written into a seemingly badly-written novel which shows no sign of ending and could cost West Ham dearly if FIFA side with Sporting Lisbon.

Nuno Saraiva, Director of Communications at Sporting Lisbon

All this comes after Sporting Lisbon President Director of Communications Nuno Saraiva labelled co-owner David Sullivan a “liar” and a “parasite”. Currently, the Hammers are preparing for legal action against Sporting Lisbon.

This has clearly turned into a massive storm within the West Ham communities, but it remains to be seen as to what comes next for both Sporting Lisbon and West Ham United.
