Gill's Got A Difficult Job

United's chief executive is frustrated with the complications of the Tevez deal but still confident of pushing it through.

Not much happened on the Tevez front in the last few days - at least not much we know about. West Ham still insist they have agreed nothing with no one - and United are still pretty much confident of signing the Argentinian striker who featured in the losing side in yesterday night's Copa America final.

David Gill, United's chief executive admitted his frustration over the complication of the whole case but his confidence is intact.

"We are working on it and clearly it`s complicated - overly complicated in my humble opinion," he told Reuters news agency.

"And we are working, effectively, with four other parties in order to sort it out: the player, West Ham, the companies who own his economic rights and the Premier League.

"The process is going on as we speak. The player is coming over to Manchester and will have a medical some time this week.

'Obviously the deal is subject to sorting out all the paperwork, but we`re very confident that that can be achieved in the course of the next week or so."


What will be the conclusion to this tiring saga? Well, of course, Tevez will become a Manchester United player. How? Pretty good question. We may agree a deal with West Ham that will satisfy the Premier League. Maybe FIFA will settle the matter. Or the whole thing goes to court. Who knows?
