United Agree Record Fee For Tevez

Manchester United are on the verge of tying up a record-breaking deal for Carlos Tevez, according to reports…

The Sun claims that United will pay ₤32million to purchase Tevez’s rights from Media Sports Investment, the Kia Joorabchian firm that controversially brought the Argentine ace to West Ham in 2006.

Tevez and compatriot Javier Mascherano joined the Hammers in similar third-party moves from Corinthians despite attracting interest from some of Europe’s superpowers, including Real Madrid. While Mascherano escaped to Liverpool in January 2007, Tevez stayed and almost single-handedly steered the London club to safety.

The East End outfit were fined ₤5.5million by the Premier League for not disclosing certain details of Tevez’s contract, such as the fact the player could be transferred without the club’s permission – as eventually happened.

After a drawn-out negotiation process, and extensive legal screening on United’s part, the 24-year-old moved to Old Trafford on a two-year loan last summer. He has impressed immensely, scoring 19 goals during his first season and forming an excellent understanding with Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.

While the deal runs out next summer, the Red Devils had the option of tying him up in the winter – just as Liverpool did with Mascherano. However, despite Tevez’s public pleas for a permanent deal, United opted to wait.

But now, after talks only recently reopened between the North West giants and MSI, a figure has been agreed that will make the Albicelestes star the most expensive player in the history of English football, edging out Andriy Shevchenko’s ₤30.6million move to Chelsea.

It is unknown whether United must pay the fee this summer or whether they may wait until the loan expires next year.
