Not much has gone the way of Manchester United since they won the Champions League in May. Ronaldo wants to leave, Ramsey snubbed them over Arsenal and the fans want Arshavin at the club. It is a mess for United. But finally some good news seem to make their way to Old Trafford.
Manchester Evening News reckons that the Manchester United board is confident of signing Carlos Tevez on a permanent deal. They say that Manchester United has already paid Ã‚Â£10 million to sign him on loan for two years and would have to pay another Ã‚Â£10 million to complete his move.
However, the newspaper says that, should Manchester United fail to tie up Tevez by the end of the year, they risk losing him to other clubs.
Tevez has had a brilliant first season with Manchester United finding the net on 19 occasions, including some crucial goals for the club. More recently, has expressed his desire to stay at the club saying that he would “sign right now” if he had the option, again the information courtesy of Manchester Evening News.
This can only be good news for Manchester United after it was reported in the media last week that the Glazers would not make funds available for Ferguson to tie up Tevez and alsoÃ‚Â bring in squad reinforcements.
