Man City must overcome complicated Jo ownership

Manchester City face a battle to land CSKA Moscow striker Jo Alves.

The Mail on Sunday says Jo is part-owned by MSI, the company who brought Carlos Tevez to England, and CSKA Moscow will receive only 70 per cent of the proposed £18million transfer.

The sale will be the biggest in Russian league history, even though CSKA might only be left with £12m as MSI take the other £6m.

Jo began his career at Corinthians, the club that MSI - who were fronted by Kia Joorabchian - took over in late 2004, before he moved to the Russian capital in 2005.

Last week he agreed personal terms with City and an annual salary of £3.5m was agreed.
