This according to The People:

Chelsea have been forced to pay Manchester United £215,000 in compensation for enticing chief executive Peter Kenyon to Stamford Bridge.

A Premier League inquiry has upheld United's right to a pay-out - but it was only a fraction of the £2million initially demanded.

To celebrate, Kenyon will today attend his first live football match since September when Chelsea take on Birmingham at The Bridge.

The former United supremo has kept a low profile following his Old Trafford exit. Now, with the dispute settled, he will officially take up his new post on February 1.
