Tevez: we now have a saga

It reported that striker Carlos Tevez has agreed personal terms with Manchester United, this according to his representatives. But West Ham aren’t in agreement.

The deal, curious as it is, suggests that Manchester United will bring Carlos Tevez in on a 2 year loan deal: not so fast though. Premier League rules say that the transfer must be done directly with West Ham but this pesky agent, Kia Joorabchian, has been nothing but a thorn in the footballing communities side with these strange ownership deals that force part of any sale proceeds to be paid directly to him.

The deal would be similar to the one which took Javier Masherano to Liverpool, but West Ham made the deal directly.

Tevez is really keen on the move to Old Trafford, but West Ham owner Eggert Magnusson has insisted that West Ham own the player's registration, and can’t go without consent and expects Tevez to return for pre-season training.

Here is where the saga will ensue: Joorabchian's lawyers say the deal has been negotiated with the "knowledge and permission" of West Ham.

Any deal will be under special scrutiny from the Premier League and they will likely back West Ham if any problems appear. This transfer is ripe for a spot of bung or corruption. The Premier League wants to ensure Joorabchian is not paid any of the fee for a transfer or a loan. Joorabchian seems intent on getting his. Back channel, anyone?

What makes this more complex and strange is that West Ham insisted they cut all ties with Joorabchian after the League ruled against them and fined them. How is it this guy is still involved? Are West Ham just covering up the third-party agreement? Is that why Joorabchian remains in the picture?

More mud in the water? Man United claim they were also given permission to speak to Tevez.

Well, however this ends, if Tevez becomes a United player, lookout. Can you imagine the potency of that front line?
