Carlos Tevez will be handed his first start at the Eastlands, it seems.

If everything goes as planned, United will officially complete the signing of Tevez today, on a two-year loan deal, with an option of a permanent transfer after the expiry of the initial agreement.

However, the striker who’s been training with his new teammates since last Friday, will not feature against Reading, according to assistant manager Carlos Queiroz.

‘Will he slot straight in? I don’t think so. He’s still a bit light after being involved in the Copa America. He had about 15 days without training but he’ll get there. After about two weeks with us, I think Carlos will be ready to play.’

Well, he’s here since the 3rd of August and the City game will be played at the 19th – that’s more than two weeks so now we only have to wait until the weekend after next to see our arguably most exciting signing in action.
