The Court of Arbitration for Sport has already issued its decision regarding the case of Belgrano and the soccer player Lucas Zelarayán. After three years of litigation, the CAS determined that Tigres must pay 2.4 million dollars to the Argentine team.
The problem for the feline squad began in 2019 when Tigres received one hundred percent of the income from the sale, Belgrano claimed the percentage it was entitled to from the sale of the player.
In 2020, Tigres responded to a first court ruling by appealing to avoid 30 percent of the rights to Zelarayán, who was sold for $8 million to MLS’ Columbus Crew.
Now, the UANL side must pay the Argentine team 48.5 million pesos plus punitive expenses for the litigation they faced within 90 days.
