Carlito's £32 Million Way

Manchester United has finally splashed out the cash, £32 million, this summer...for a player already on the team, Carlos Tevez. United's move will finally put to bed the long, sordid tale of Tevez. He was brought over to West Ham by Kia Joorabchian's MSI company, then loaned to Manchester United but MSI still owned Tevez's contract. It has been a complicated mess.

The transfer fee is an English record, surpassing Andriy Shevchenko's £30.6 million transfer ins 2006. Hopefully, Tevez will be a better buy than Sheva.

Last season Tevez scored 19 goals in 48 appearances, helping Manchester United to the League and Champions League double. This coming a season after Tevez almost single-handedly kept West Ham from relegation.

It's possible this transaction signals United's intent to sell Ronaldo, at the peak of his value. The club is having massive debt issues and this isn't likely to help the situation.

I saw this in The Sun. If you did too, I'd not believe it.

I'm happy to know that United have a permanent move for Carlos Tevez. I feel he should stay at Old Trafford because this is where he belongs.

I can only see more positive out of this and my sincere hope is that both for him and the club, the more great success will follow.

What do you think about this? Do you think United should keep him permanently? I would love to hear your thoughts/comment/opinion on my blog. I've just posted an article about this.

This Chelsea supporter will stipulate that Tevez is ALREADY a better buy than Sheva.
