Real Zaragoza calm over Matuzalem compo hearing

FIFA will hear Shakhtar Donetsk's case today against Real Zaragoza over their signing of midfielder Matuzalem.

The Brazilian joined Zaragoza in the summer on a free transfer, but Shakhtar are demanding £17 million in compensation claiming that the Spanish Liga club encouraged the player to terminate his contract.

Zaragoza are calm about the situation and even if Shakhtar find a ruling in their favour, cannot expect more than £3.5 million for Matuzalem as he had only a year left of his contract to run.
