Probably the hottest property in football today, (best record in assists per game) the unknown Iranian international is said to settle on a contract for no less than 10,000,000 euros (as claimed by Hamburgian side coach Kurt Jara). Mehdi is currently being pursued by some of the world's greatest clubs (e.g. Real Madrid, Manchester Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea). His club HSV has made it to the UEFA cup and is currently preparing to face Bayern Munich in the German Cup finals.
