Amazing duo transfer blow..

...morning update on the last day of the summer transfer window.

Many United fans woke up to the news that Newcastle United have agreed a loan deal to sign Rossi until January, with Fergie saying 'he'll come back with more experience and will be of more use to us'... United fans now await to see if this news means United are about to sign another striker...

However, the biggest news of the day so far comes from East London after Argentine superstar Carlos Tevez, 22, announced that he and Argentina team-mate Javier Mascherano, 22, have agreed to sign for West Ham United.

This news has rocked many United fans, as many reds have been pinning their hopes on the duo signing for Manchester United. Tevez is a striker and Mascherano is a midfielder - both are viewed by many as potential serious long term answers to United's problems up front and in midfield.

The fact that the deal is only a loan deal for one season has sent the media into speculation overdrive, the suggestion being that both Argentine's will eventually end up playing in West London for Chelsea. Apparently both players are 'owned' by London based Media Sports Investments, which is in turn is owned by Iranian-born businessman Kia Dzhurabchan, the same investment vehicle financed the controversial 18m transfer of Argentine Olympic hero Carlos Tevez to Corinthians from Argentina's Boca Juniors. The media are speculating that Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich is backing MSI....

IF the rumours are true, you cannot help but think it's a very good move for both West Ham and Chelsea. The Hammers get use of both players for a season, and of course once they've become acclimatised to the rough and tumble of Premiership life and settled in, Chelsea can reap their reward when they switch from East to West London and link up with the blues.

Onlookers will been keen to see what happens when West Ham face Chelsea this season, will both stars pick up some mysterious injury or some such that enforce their absence???

It seems Chelsea are to rules what Uri Geller is to spoons..
