soccernet.com - July 5, 2007
Argentina striker Carlos Tevez is close to sealing a move to Manchester United.
The player, source of so much controversy for West Ham last season, is currently on international duty with Argentina in the Copa America.
It is understood however that his representatives and United are close to sealing an agreement for the 23-year-old and he is set to sign once the tournament in Venezuela finishes on July 14.
The details of the transfer remain unknown as Tevez is still under contract for three more years with West Ham.
The Hammers are embroiled in a legal dispute with his agent Kia Joorabchian, who runs the company Media Sports Investment (MSI), after the club terminated an agreement giving the rights to any transfer fee for the player during transfer windows.

A Manchester United delegation are in South America attempting to thrash out a deal for West Ham striker Carlos Tevez.
The Mirror says United boss Sir Alex Ferguson hopes to have an agreement for the Argentina international wrapped up inside the next 48 hours.
Ferguson has told his money men to get the Argentine striker and a delegation has gone to South America to get to the bottom of how exactly United can buy the controversial star.
Tevez is playing for his country in the Copa America, but his club future is being decided in talks between United and his handlers - plus former Brazilian club Corinthians.
United hope to sign Tevez for around Â£20m, but will go higher if necessary. They want to make the Argie a 'clean' signing, without anymore third party interests.
United close on Tevez swoop!

Widespread reports claim Manchester United are homing in on the signing of Carlos Tevez.
The Argentine striker is currently on international duty at the Copa America, but rumours of a move to Old Trafford are gathering pace.
Tevez spent last season at West Ham United and scored at Old Trafford on the final day of the campaign to keep the club in the Premier League.
But he is expected to leave Upton Park over the summer, having already opted against joining Italian champions Internazionale.
He has admitted a switch to Real Madrid would hold some appeal, while Arsenal have also been linked with the mercurial front man.
However, reports now suggest Tevez will sign for United in a deal reputed to be worth in the region of Â£20million.
Sir Alex Ferguson is a long-term fan of the 23-year-old, but has reportedly been waiting for the issue of Tevez's registration to be cleared up.
If United do complete a deal for the former Corinthians star, he would become the fourth major signing of the summer for the Premier League champions following the captures of Anderson, Nani and Owen Hargreaves.
