|Controversies||• In 2009, there was a controversy over Paul’s transfer from Le Havre to Manchester United. Le Havre accused of breach of contract because he had a “non-solicited agreement” with the club until the 2009-2010 season. This agreement according to Le Havre was not only signed by the footballer but also his parents.Le Havre made all these claims on their official website. Not only this they also did a press release on the site that Manchester is taking the player by tapping him with extra money (£87,000) and a house. During this, Le Havre was accused of the same thing by Torcy for taking Paul.A judge appointed by FIFA cleared MU of all the accusations and allowed for Paul to join the MU team. Instead of appealing to the court, Le Havre and Manchester United reached an agreement, terms undisclosed.|
