FIFA to Decide Later This Week

FIFA spokesman Andreas Herren has announced that a decision will be made later this week (tomorrow according to the BBC) on whether world soccer's governing body will intervene in the proposed transfer of Carlos Tevez from West Ham to Man Utd.

If Fifa opts to take on the case then the organisation's Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) will come into play. However Herren also said,

"I know third-party ownership is not favoured in England, but national legislation varies from one country to another and we do not specifically look after the interests of one country's football organisation."

Which suggests they may just throw the case back to the Premier League.
