UF Quick Throw: Carlos Tevez has had enough!

Whether it was the continual benchings because of the slew of 30-million-pound strikers already at Old Trafford, or the fact that his only games came against crap opposition, one thing is for certain: Tevez is on the outs. I'd be sick of playing second fiddle to Dimitar Berbatov as well.

Well done Fergie, you handled this situation admirably. Now when Rooney has one of his petulant phases and Dimitar begins sulking, you won't have as much goalscoring to call on from the bench. As a Liverpool fan, I approve.

I started reading the article, but once I read "keen on move to Real Madrid" I stopped. I knew what was gonna be said.

I'm split on this.

On one side, he is the best of the three (don't think it's even close honestly) so losing him would be huge.

On the other side, I'm sure they would sign someone like Benzema to replace him

bite your tongue, Georger. I would hate to see Karim become a Manc.

at least United wouldn't get any money for Tevez if he did ship off. at least i don't think United would. he is on loan right?

There are some legal questions with Tevez' loan deal, no? And I believe West Ham gets chunk of any fee ManU gets for Tevez, or some such thing. Or maybe all of that is wrong. Coffee is not doing the trick this morning.

Mike Georger said...

Isn't it the same as Mascherano's deal? West Ham gets squat and the team has to pay the agent all the money?

Either way United don't get anything if they lose him as far as I understand.

Trust me I don't want to see Benzema in Manchester any time soon.

I think you're right, Georger. Tevez is owned by an agent, not a club.
