Tevez: Will he stay or will he go?

    (The rather dashing Carlos Tevez)

 It’s been a strange day for the little known Carlos Tevez. Never one to find himself in the news normally, Tevez has stepped into the limelight for a change and is at the centre of another tug-of-war, this time between Manchester United and West Ham. Yesterday, thefc100 reported that a 20million fee was being thrown around in the newspapers but that potential problems existed in further confusion regarding the player’s owners.

Today, the earliest reports suggested that Man Utd had agreed a two year loan with West Ham, and had the option of a third year should they wish to take it up. Reports suggested Man Utd officials were on their way to meet the player, representing the Argies in the Copa America, to set up a medical and finalise personal terms.

Tevez, for his part, insisted yesterday that he had heard nothing of an offer from Utd and that he wasn’t prepared to rule out staying at West Ham as he was settled there and it was clear ‘the fans loved (him)’.  News broke in the afternoon then that the biscuit man and West Ham’s chairman Eggert Magnusson had insisted the deal was not on course for completion as West Ham owned the player and could block any attempt to sign him.

The Premier League had also stated last night that they would be keeping a very close eye on any move to make sure and avoid a repeat of last season’s furore which led to Sheffield United’s appeal of their relegation to the Championship over concerns about the Hammers move for Tevez and Mascherano.

This evening however, the loveable Kia Joorabchian, Tevez’ dodgy agent, has insisted that the move to Man Utd will be formalised in the next couple of days as the player had been ‘given permission to talk to other clubs’. Tevez has also insisted he desires a move to Old Trafford now and his agent has suggested that the player has already agreed terms on the move and that it will be finalised in the next few days…..

The fact that West Ham expressed an interest to Liverpool today about bringing Djibril Cisse suggests that the club were possibly resigned to losing the player. The fact that Magnusson insists that they are not could mean one of two things. Either (a) they know he’s going to leave and thus want to make some serious money on him rather than let him leave on loan, or (b) they believe there are still problems with the registration that could see Sheffield United’s appeal be subsequently upheld.

Either way, this case makes for interesting and very strange reading: watch this space…..
