A tremendous aquisition for the MANCs....

Tevez to join Man United on loan next week

Carlos Tevez is set to be confirmed as a Manchester United player next week.

The Argentina striker will return to England after playing in Sunday's Copa America final against Brazil to undergo a medical.

Personal terms have already been agreed and United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is confident the protracted saga is coming to a close.

Ferguson said: 'I think we have got the player - we think he is our player and are very hopeful.

'Everyone was excited when we thought we could get Tevez. He's exciting, his form is fantastic and at 23 he can get better.'

Manchester United have agreed an initial loan deal for Tevez with the option of a permanent transfer, which could be worth over 30million.

They had hoped to push the transfer through last week but it stalled after the Premier League insisted West Ham, who hold Tevez's registration, must receive the majority of the fee.

That is because West Ham were allowed to keep playing Tevez last season after assuring the Premier League all third-party clauses in the player's contract had been severed.

But Tevez's advisor Kia Joorabchian, who owns the player's economic rights, is confident he is on sound legal footing to push the transfer through.

Joorabchian released a statement indicating all three parties involved in the transfer - understood to mean Manchester United, West Ham and his own company MSI - were confident 'the administrative issues will be settled in the next few days.'

Joorabchian added: 'We don't see any problems. I spoke to United tonight and they are confident they will have him registered next week.

'Carlos will come on Tuesday, have a medical on Wednesday at United and hopefully we will have administrative issues sorted next week.

'Personal terms between Carlos and United have been agreed in full. He feels confident now he is a Manchester United player.'

But the deal must still be approved by the Premier League - and their position has not changed.

The league tonight warned Tevez's registration will not be transferred to Manchester United unless they are satisfied West Ham conducted the deal.

A spokesman said: 'Any deal for Carlos Tevez has to be done directly with West Ham United.

'They hold the registration and we will not transfer the registration unless a deal is done directly with the club.'

West Ham confirmed no deal had yet been done and could not be done without the agreement of both the club and the Premier League.

Ferguson has maintained all along that Manchester United want Tevez but would not stand for a 'dodgy' deal.

He added on Sky Sports News tonight: 'The Premier League seem to be holding back, I think they probably want to make sure everything is transparent.

'We want that to be the case - we don't want a bad taste surrounding the transfer, we want it done cleanly.'

With Arsenal losing Henry and ManU putting Tevez up front with Rooney and C. Ronaldo in the midfield, this will give them a very good shot at the Premiership for '08. Thoughts?
