The Tevez-case has been sorted out so the Premier League are now able to sort out the matter of Gabriel Heinze.

I assume you are all aware of the fact that Liverpool wish to sign Gaby Heinze? If you weren’t asleep during the last two weeks, you’re bound to know about it.

What you might not know is that the Premier League is ready to probe the case. Heinze’s agent insists he has a letter signed by David Gill that states the defender would be allowed to leave if an offer of Ł6 million or higher came in for him.

Liverpool had matched that bid but United stand firm, stressing that they do not wish to sell him to any of their domestic rivals. The player himself has still not confirmed or denied anything, he merely avoided giving concrete, substantial answers.

Many sources claim that the Premier League are now ready to look into the case and they might decide in favour of Liverpool though it’s unsure whether a written promise constitutes a binding contract.

I believe the case could be simple. I had said earlier that I did not believe such a letter existed; now I’d say it’s possible there is such a letter indeed, simply because David Gill and Sir Alex would never in their wildest dreams have imagined that Heinze would demand a transfer to Liverpool. And I can’t blame them.
