Quick Tevez Still On?

Despite yesterday hearing the news that a three-day High Court ruling into the Carlos Tevez affair will go ahead on the 22nd, many quotes in the past weeks still suggest that a quick out-of-court deal could go through.

First of all came the surprise quote from MSI representative and Tevez`s agent, Kia Joorabchian late last week, when he suggested that despite serving a high court writ against West Ham United, that a deal could be done sooner rather than later whilst speaking to the Daily Mirror.

'There is a possibility it may get resolved next week.'

Then there was the first signs of cracks staring to appear in the West Ham camp when chairman Eggert Magnusson admitted that he expected the Argentinean ace to leave soon, whilst talking to Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet.

'At the moment, he's our player but he wants to play in the Champions League. I think he will be leaving soon.'

Then came further indications at West Hams growing frustration when Hammers manager, Alan Curbishley revealed how frustrated e was with the deal whilst talking to Sky Sports News, claiming how he felt everyday was a "Tevez-Day".

"Everyday seems to be a Tevez day at the moment. We can't seem to get away from it. I think it needed to be sorted out a long time ago.'

Then came the quotes from Premier League chief executive, Richard Scudamore, when he admitted to Sky Sports News hoe he, along with the rest of the people at the Premier League wished for a quick solution to the ongoing Tevez saga as well.

'The complication is this other complication, which is the legal claim. For everybody's sake we all hope it will be resolved sooner rather than later. I think we all want to get back to the preparation for the season in a normal way soon. There is a huge buzz and excitement around the start of the season and the sooner we get to that position the better.'

Then came one of many quotes from United`s own chairman, David Gill whilst talking to MUTV, in which he remained confident on signing Tevez, but wished the deal would be completed quickly.

"I have not been involved in this and it is not Manchester United's decision. Clearly, it is a dispute between Tevez, the owners and West Ham. Hopefully, that can be solved relatively quickly and he can come to join us. I would have thought they have taken this decision in the belief that he can join us."

United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson then echoed those comments yesterday in a press conferenace, claiming that despite being confident on capturing the 23 year old, the length of time the deal is taking was becoming frustrating.

"I'm confident we'll get the player, David Gill is also confident. It has been dragging on and it has been frustrating."

Sir Alex went on to confirm that any sort of out-of-court settlement would be welcomed by him.

"At the moment it is going to the High Court. I am sure we will get a final decision on the matter there. But if something happens before that, it is something we would welcome.'

And then came the latest in a long line of quotes, when West Ham issued a statement on their website in which they again stated their desire to resolve a quick, out-of-court settlement.

"West Ham United will continue to work on achieving an out-of-court settlement on the issues relating to Carlos Tevez."

So, MSI, Joorabchian, Magnusson, Curbishley, The Premier League, Gill, Ferguson (and presumable Tevez himself) all want to see a quick solution. So even though the date has been set for August 22nd, don`t be surprised to hear of an out-of-court settlement being resolved.

I'm suprised Sir Alex is waiting around for Tevez. He's good but there are plenty better who carry less baggage.
