Tevez Is Cheap
United will sign Carlos Tevez on a permanent deal, Fergie announced just a day after the striker missed a great chance to earn at least a point for us at Bolton.
Bitter memories of two costly misses aside, Tevez has settled in well and scored important goals, like the openers against Wigan and Chelsea. His attitude and skills are can't be questioned though his finishing is not exactly lethal.
The complicated deal that took him to Old Trafford is set to become permanent and much more simple: United will sign him for an acceptable fee.
There is no question about his long-term future here,' Fergie told Setanta.
'David Gill has spoken to his agent and told him we are very happy with him. The fee is in place. I won't tell you what it is but it is still cheap.
'I want to make this happen. He has impressed everyone with his appetite for the game. He'll get me 15 goals this season and what's more, they'll be important goals.'
His miss reduced his price, it seems. Only kidding of course. I welcome this piece of news and surely Tevez is happy, too: he has recently stated that he would be delighted to remain at Old Trafford for at least five years.
Mentioning how sure he was about Tevez would score important goals was a nice gesture from Fergie only a day after that horrible miss and it might do wonders for the lads' confidence. Sporting on Tuesday is a good attempt to show he's not badly affected by his blunder.
