Tevez ´dream´ move to come under League scrutiny

6 July 2007 11:14

LONDON (AFP) - Argentina striker Carlos Tevez insisted Friday that he is determined to complete his "dream" move to Manchester United despite fears the deal could yet be blocked by the Premier League.

The complexities surrounding the 23-year-old's ownership are holding up a potential 30-million-pound (60 million dollar) deal being struck, with the League insisting that any deal be "done directly" with the Argentinian's current club West Ham rather than his agent Kia Joorabchian.

Tevez told the Daily Mail: "For me, Manchester United will be a sensational destination and to be a member of Sir Alex Ferguson's squad will be absolutely spectacular.

"My dream is to be an idol in English football and I can achieve this now."

The Premier League insist any transfer fee for Tevez must go to the London club as he is still contracted to them for three years and the Hammers have terminated all agreements with Joorabchian.

United were close to agreeing a two-year deal with an option to sign Tevez for a further two years, but the deal has to satisfy the Premier League that Joorabchian is not being paid a transfer fee.

A Premier League spokesman said: "As far as we are concerned any deal to take Carlos Tevez away from West Ham has to be done directly with the club."

The League's stance means that the Tevez move to Manchester United is far from sealed even if they have agreed a deal in principle with the player's representatives.

Tevez is still under contract for three more years with West Ham but the club have been speaking to Manchester United about a transfer, and the former Boca Juniors and Corinthians player is excited at the prospect.

"I am a player who thrives on challenges. I went to England to triumph in the Premiership and with West Ham I have achieved that first stage," said Tevez. "Now I'm ready to move on to the next stage."
