Tevez in the Mannure?

According to The Times Carlos Tevez has told his Argentinian team-mates that he has agreed a deal with Manchester United.

The paper says that Tévez will move to United initially on a year loan deal, with a fee of about £4 million payable to Kia Joorabchian, the businessman who owns the economic rights to the player, and wages in excess of £3 million. This however would not seem to tally with yesterday's statement from Eggert Maggnusson that Tevez has a three year contract with West Ham. This story seems to be contradicted by an article in today's Sun that says Ferguson is being forced to sell players before being allowed to buy anymore.

The Mail also claim that Man Utd have signed Tevez but that the deal will not be confirmed until the middle of next week. They also repeat yesterday's allegations in The Times that Kia Joorabchian has documents that prove West Ham did not tear-up the agreement that gave MSI third party control over the club. They say the documents "could take West Ham down."

So Joorabchian could lose £4 million because Tevez has three years left on his contract with West Ham. Now that couldn't possibly have anything to do with these allegations could it?

Not sure I know what you mean by that last paragraph. If he wants to, Kia would move Tevez on regardless of whether the old contract exists or not.

I don't see how any of this would stop him losing out on his £4m.

If the old contract doesn't exist Eggy seems to think that makes Tevez a West Ham player with a three year contract - who therefore can't move to Man Utd.

But my brain is beginning to hurt from this intrigue so I could be wrong.
