The tranfer was for £1.4 Million (British Pounds) Not $1.4 Million US Dollars. The tranfer is about $2.5 Million US Dolars. Pounds and Dollars are a bit different in value you know.

Hurrah for Paquador!

What you read was obviously a misprint. According to "Sky Sports News" (British local news) the tranfer was for 1.4 Million pounds. I doubt the Brittish would be wrong on this, since Acuña did sign for an English team.

Hurrah for Paquador!

Well actually the Brits have the most stupid rumours you can ever see (eg thuram wanting to sign for man utd for only £12mil), (Maldini wanting to go on bosman at the start of this season) :solleyes: but this isn't a rumour anymore so your probably right
