Tevez fancies Inter Milan move, but could he be heading to United?

According to the Times Carlos Tevez is on Fergie's wanted list, however the player says that he would like to join Inter Milan, not least because they have eight Argentina players. The Times report claims that MSI, the player's owner, have rejected a £30m offer from Inter for Tevez.

The player is of course still at the centre of the relegation row involving West Ham United and Sheffield United, the Blades claim that the FA Premier League didn't handle disciplinary procedures correctly after it was revealed that Tevez and Mascherano were owned by a third party in MSI.

This row looks set to rumble on and it could well have a bearing on the future of Tevez, because either the league will have to relax the rules over player ownerhsip or MSI may well have no alternative but to sell the player if any future ruling goes in favour of Sheffield United and against the Premier League. I actually believe FIFA should have some input on this thorny issue because in places like South America, third party ownership of players is common - and so FIFA has to be involved.

Reports claim that the Red Devils could be looking to broker some sort of loan deal for the Argentine and given the current situation Manchester United will surely want the whole issue surrounding ownership of Tevez cleared up before they sign the player. However, rivals Liverpool signed Mascherano after that deal was ratified by the Premier League. Could the Mascherano deal come under further scrutiny in the future I wonder?
