The strange move of Ãlvaro from Levante to Newcastle United has been held up as they have failed to agree on a compensation package.

According to Levante, they have not sanctioned the move because they could not agree on how much they would have to pay Alvaro because he had not asked for a transfer.
The Brazilian defender is annoyed at his club Levante for not allowing him to move to Newcastle in what he describes as a dream move.
Having apparently already spoken to Newcastle, Ãlvaro was due in England to undergo a medical and sign for the club. At least those were the surprise reports we were seeing today and it looks like the last minute difficulties have upset the player.
Alvaro said today:
“I am very hurt. Only the club will know the reasons why they have done this,” “My head is no longer with Levante.â€
“I am hurt because I have had the offer to leave since January 21 and I do not understand why they have done this.”
Ãlvaro then said that he believes that things can be sorted out and there is enough time to push the deal through before the transfer window closes.
“I hope that this can be resolved, because if not then there will be big problems,”
We’ll have to see about that – but it’s always looked an odd deal for Newcastle to make, and the club have yet to comment on the transfer. All very strange indeed.
