It appears the long-running Carlos Tevez saga is about to come to an end.
Reports tonight suggest that United have come to an agreement with Kia Joorabchian and his companies MSI and Just Sports Inc over the Argentinian international's registration.
It is believed that the two companies, who claim ownership of any economic rights deriving from the transfer, have agreed to pay 'somewhere between £1-3m' for the club to release Tevez from his registration to enable his move to Manchester United to take place.
The deal will need to be ratified by both the Premier League and FA sometime tomorrow (Friday 22nd August) as, in the event that the football authorities fail to agree to the deal, Joorabchian will need to submit the appropriate paperwork to the High Court to enable his legal action to take place.
As far as we are aware, Kevin McCabe has yet to comment, but we expect more falsehoods and hypocrisy out of Yorkshire as soon as Sky can get a microphone in front of the less than camera-shy property developer.

''Well at last it's over. Let's hope he has had his one good season in England. Adios!''

''I think the Carlos Tevez affair is done and dusted in the West Ham fans' eyes. It's sad that he has to leave the club at a time like this but Javier left in the middle of the summer. It has got to the point where I don't know whether to laugh or cry. The new signings have helped boost us. A good pre-season behind us and we'll be ready to stuff down the Birmingham's and Everton's and get up to a third place finish like we did 1985 season. Again, I fancy us in the cups.
Etherington is a must for us this year. Ljungberg could perform well. Upson is the favourite. I agree with the fella on here who said that it's better to have Kia Joorabchian out of the club. If Carlitos chooses to name another agent and stay with a growing team with better players than Man U, then it's up to him. I don't think he knows how to approach the situation after last year's debacle.
Losses against Chesterfield, Charlton and Watford confounded me. We'll be up there this year. Any news on the youth team? I know of Collison and Reid but others such as Guinan still around? West Ham could do with having some of their other players back, Coyle was great, and Dyer coming in will help.''

''I hope it ain't the 22nd next Friday! I also hope that Carlos is given the kind of reception he deserves, when he next comes to UP. He'll remain a hero of mine, as long as I should live.
So long Carlos...and thanks for the memories. SJ.''
