Merseyside Police considering mayor's Ross Barkley complaint

Last year, documents fell in to the public domain that showed Manchester United's acquisition of Paul Pogba was built around a fiction to minimise his tax exposure - the FA were asked to believe and accept (and they did) that Mino Raiola was spending 88% of his time acting for the club and only 12% for his actual client, the player.

"At worst, it could be seen as a deliberate attempt to drive down a player's value in the transfer market so as to benefit the player, his agent and the buying club".

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has welcomed the signing of Ross Barkley. The Premier League champions declined to comment on the size of the commission or Anderson's accusations when contacted by ESPN FC.

If true, it adds to the sense that the Merseyside club have been left shortchanged over the deal. "While that may not be the case it is in your interest that this is at least looked at to reassure fans that transfers will be monitored more closely in future and that no individuals are benefitting inappropriately".

"I am so concerned about the circumstances surrounding this transfer I am asking the appropriate police authorities to consider whether any fraud has taken place".

"Bill miraculously got an offer of £35m for a player who was going to be a free agent but he didn't want to go when he was injured".

"He can play in midfield, if we play with three midfielders, or number 10 if we play 3-4-3", Conte added.

In the letter, Mr Anderson tells FA chairman Greg Clarke and Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore that he feels "it is right that the public receive an assurance on this matter".

'He has started to have training sessions with us to understand our idea of football we must be pleased.

"Football fans are often treated as the forgotten minority and the Premier League would not be the fantastic product it is without them".

The ECHO has also attempted to reach Chelsea Football Club for a response.
