Mutu may forfeit Florida homes over Chelsea dispute

A five-year contract dispute between Fiorentina player Adrian Mutu, one of international soccer’s bad boys and England’s Chelsea soccer club has landed in Miami federal court, according to law.com. Chelsea turned to the U.S. federal courts in a “petition to recognize and enforce the international arbitration award.” The pleading before U.S. District Chief Judge Federico Moreno said he has jurisdiction because Mutu owns property in Miami-Dade County. According to the Miami-Dade property appraiser’s office, Mutu owns two properties in Coral Gables and one in Miami with his wife, Dominican model Consuelo Matos. They are: A four-bedroom, 5,474-square-foot home on Alhambra Circle constructed in 2006, assessed at $1.7 million and purchased in 2008 for $2.6 million; a three-bedroom, 4,671-square-foot home built in 1951, assessed at $604,000 and purchased in 2007 for $1.4 million; a two-bedroom, 2,028-square-foot condominium at the Executive Residences in Miami’s Coconut Grove, assessed at $558,000 and purchased for $975,000 in 2006.
