Despite West Ham`s claims that they have no knowledge of a deal for Tevez, it would seem that a deal is imminent.

Tevez`s representatives, led by Iranian businessman Kia Joorabchian, issued a statement late yesterday evening, which countered West Hams claims by suggesting that a deal had been agreed between all parties involved, with the consent of the London-based club.

The statement read,

‘We confirm that Carlos Tevez has, with the knowledge and permission of West Ham been in discussions with other clubs. Subsequently, personal terms have now been agreed with Manchester United. Carlos Tevez’s representatives will work during the course of next week so that a move to Manchester United can be finalised as quickly as possible. The process for finalising the player’s registration with Manchester United will be undertaken in accordance with appropriate procedures.’

So, it would seem as if a deal has been agreed, and if the deal does go through (which is looking more likely every hour) there is no doubt we will sign a player who is eager and excited at the prospect of playing at our club.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Tevez said,

‘I only know Alex Ferguson from what I see from the outside but I believe he is a great manager and that I will be a good pupil for him, Manchester United is a team with a very offensive, attacking style of play. This is the system I always desire. Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world. I have spoken with him during the season and I admire him for being a star on the pitch and on the street.’

So lets hope we can wrap up a deal early next week, so we can start to prepare for next season will a squad that looks like it will provide many more memorable moments for us to all enjoy!!!
