Tevez to United talk hots up as more controversy looms

The ongoing on saga of Sheffield United's battle with West Ham and the Premier League surrounding the row over Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez could well end up costing Manchester United, because the latest news is that the Red Devils have been in talks about signing Tevez, possibly on loan as I have been saying for some time on this blog.

However, the Blades who have been relegated have announced that they've been given a high court date of July 13th to challenge last weeks ruling which backed up the Premier League who fined the Hammers £5m over the deal surrounding ownership of the two Argentines.

Further to this media reports claim that the Red Devils might not be allowed to sign Tevez until ownership of the player has been completely resolved.

The Hammers claim that they own the registration of Tevez after the league accepted in April that the club had terminated all agreements with MSI and the player's agent Kia Joorabchian, but the latter point hasn't been clarified, there has even been talk that Joorabchian could go to court himself on behalf of the Blades.

The Premier League are apparently insisting that any fee for Tevez must go to West Ham. It would appear that the way around this would be for Manchester United to strike a similar deal to that of Mascherano who has signed for Liverpool, but as I understand it this is only a loan deal, so surely United could do likewise?
