Ferguson on Tevez situation

Manchester United
comment on the article

Taken from the Press confrence to unveil Nani and Anderson, Transcribed by Rednews.co.uk

"I've said that since taking over the club, the Glazers have been supportive and they've spent a lot this summer and I appreciate it. We've a good squad and that was the downfall at the end of last season with all the competitions we were in. There maybe another signing soon"

"We are in negotitation with Tevez. The essential parts are all agreed, we just hope to finalise soon. I don't know the intricacies of that, I've left that to Maurica Watkins but we hope to have complete clarity of the deal. There's no way that we could be involved in anything underhand"

you are correct west ham did get fined but not for third party OWNERSHIP they got fined for hiding a clause in a separate side agreemant that could be read as allowing third party INFLUENCE over a team. A few years ago half the leeds team were not owned by the club but by third parties. My point about the media is that they seem to have a lot of inside knowledge about what is supposidly going at the PL, West Ham, Kia and Man U which they will never have to prove. How many times these days do yo see retracements in the papers (you do have to look hard as they dont tend to put them in their headlines)

In that case, I stand corrected.

United have way too much at stake to get involved in this, i reckon they might pull out if it is not sorted soon.

If this does go through then west ham will be absolutely wetting themselves. A 5m fine for their wrong doing and then 30m tv money and also buying a player for 5m and selling him for 30+m. Morally its shocking!! Maybe everyone should become drug dealers, lots of money gained but against the law, sound familiar??

Why is Man U always involved in troublesome transfer matters? Two seasons ago it was Mikel. Last season Owen Hargreaves and now its Tevez. I'm a true fan and I think Tevez can add to our attack but we could have easily gotten the Italian Quagerilia and Gudjohnsen for the price and trouble of Tevez.

personally i think he is one of the best players around for scoring goals as he proved at the end of the season. Its worth going through this if we're going 2 have him next seaso banging in the goals.

I think if it all goes through then tevez will be a great signing for us! He is one of the best strikers around and he would score many goals for man u!

it seems manchester united are just loading up strikers and offensive midfielders.what about capturing a high profile defender like what chelsea are endeavouring!!all the good manu defenders are prone to injuries-and with all-ofensive team -it is so odious to succeed in europe without some good defending-remember the AC MILAN match,(who will match up Drenthe,Alves and the incredible and never tiring Essien).GET us a defender please.

I'm not saying Fergie's trying to push through a moody deal but I heard Fergie advises Lord Black and used to advise Robert Maxwell.laugh

So now Interpol have a warrant for Kia's arrest on money laundering charges.

Where does that leave everyone?

Would you really want your club to touch anything to do with Kia with a barge pole?
