In the past couple of days, the Portuguese media has been giving big coverage yo Marco Silva’s tussle with Watford for the salary he didn’t receive after being sacked by the club.

The news was first reported by The Times, and all the Portuguese outlets had the newspaper as their source, at least until today.

Now A Bola got access to some exclusive information about the case, and aren’t afraid of going against most of what The Times has written.

They claim there are still negotiations going on, so taking the case to court is not in the short-term plans. Silva is said to be solving the problem with his lawyer and the League Managers Association.

Another subject they say The Times is wrong is about a clause to end Silva’s contract at the end of the season.

A Bola claims such thing does not exist, so Watford can’t just pay six more months of salary and get rid of him.

Although taking the case to court is not the plan now, this possibility is not ruled out for the future in case Silva’s group of lawyers can’t get to an agreement with Watford.
