Tevez To United - Really?

Carlos Tevez is on his way to Manchester United if reports are to be believed but is it true?

Various sources claimed that United would soon tie up a deal for West Ham's Messiah, Carlos Tevez for the surprisingly modest price of Ł12 million. The Argentinian star could arrive on a season-long loan that would be made permanent for the quoted amount of money at the end of next season.

The only thing that's said to be blocking the way of the move is the ownership issue of Tevez which costed West Ham United 5,5Ł million and a legal battle because of the Prem's decision not to deduce points from the London outfit.

However, I must say that I find these reports odd - the player's owner is MSI, why would it be good for them as the Ł12 million is well below his estimated value? Other reports say United will get their man for a hefty price but these also have a weak point: the money. It's well known that the days of financial paradise are over at Old Trafford and with spending hefty amounts of money to secure Hargreaves, Nani and Anderson it is at least doubtful that we could fund the arrival of Tevez.

The Telegraph claimed today that Tevez is set to reject us for Inter Milan who are ready to pay Ł30 million for the striker straigthaway. I must say that this story has much more credibility than anything else I have read on Tevez in the past few days but we'll wait and see. I would say that our chances of buying the striker are quite low though I must say that he would probably be an excellent player for United.

i cant belive we would be interested in him. we need a strong striker that can hold the ball up and poach goals. we have too many people who can play the role that tevez plays.

would be agood signing but cant see it

Man Utd need a big strong striker - ala Drogba - to hold the ball up for the likes of Rooney, Ronaldo and the other flair players. You have enough flair / creativity in your side already without Tevez.
