CSKA takes legal action against Manchester United

The popular Bulgarian team CSKA made a sensation by taking legal action against Manchester United, announced The reasons behind this decision is that the “army” team demands payments from the “red devils” of nearly one million leva for the transfer of Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham last year. The sum is the so-called “percentage of solidarity”. The demands of CSKA from Manchester United aren’t anything new; the former president of the club Alexander Tomov was the first to threaten the English champion with legal action.

It’s a known fact that both sides have tried to settle the issue several times, but the representatives of Manchester United made it clear that they won’t give a penny to the Bulgarian club. The English team cited English laws – they don’t owe money to former clubs of the player in case of an internal football transfer.
