    Heinze tipped to leave

    Paddy Crerand feels it is likely that Argentine defender Gabriel Heinze will leave United this summer.

    The popular 29-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe, with Real Madrid in particular tipped to lodge a firm bid for his services.

    The 2005 Sir Matt Busby Player of the Season has been displaced as United's first choice left-back by Patrice Evra, and Reds legend Crerand feels the lure of regular first team football elsewhere will prove too strong for Heinze.

    “I think there is a strong possibility Gaby will go,” Crerand told MUTV. “That would be disappointing for the supporters and for the club.

    "But since Patrice came in he has been magnificent, and Gaby must be thinking he won’t play as often as he would like. Then you see that Roberto Carlos has left Real Madrid – so they are desperate for a left-back.

    “And if you are not in the team like Gaby, you are not happy. A manager would also be angry with any player who is happy sitting on the bench.”

    Crerand still feels, however, that Heinze would receive ample first team chances at Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson's rotation policy.

    “There are very few players at this club who are certain of their place every week – maybe three or four," said Crerand.

    “Look at the players United have used over the years who are not first choices but have ended up playing 25 games a season because of injuries, resting players and so on.”

    Terry warns Man Utd - 'Prem trophy is ours'

    Chelsea and England captain John Terry has warned Manchester United that the Premier League crown is only on loan to them.

    Chelsea failed to win the title for a third successive year under Jose Mourinho last season as United re-emerged as the dominate force in the English game.

    The London club endured a season ravaged by injuries to key personnel but Terry insists the heartache of losing out on the title will provide them the spur to win it back.

    Terry said: 'Just talking about it makes the blood boil and things like that.

    'But you assess it and we haven't had a bad season due to things that have happened around the club with injuries and stuff like that.

    'When you look at it like that, maybe you can look at it in a positive way.

    'There is no point in saying 'if we had players back' or 'if this didn't happen or that didn't happen we would have beaten Manchester United'.

    'We haven't and that makes me more determined to come back next year and really fight and push Man United and get the trophy back we feel is ours,' he told Chelsea TV.
    With Drogba leaving(is he?) dun think it will be easy task for them!

    Man Utd close in on striker Tevez
    West Ham striker Carlos Tevez is set to join Manchester United, according to BBC Radio Five Live Sport.

    It is understood talks are underway and a deal could be completed as soon as the weekend.

    Tevez, 23, is on international duty with Argentina playing in the Copa America in Venezuela.

    West Ham have said they want to keep him after he helped them survive in the Premier League last season but doubts have remained over his Hammers future.

    More to follow.
    I hope this time around it's true. What a grand pre-lude to the opening of a new season and we are in a strong position to defend our title. Yay!!!

    Anderson relishes Ron link-up

    Reds' summer signing Anderson says being given the chance to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo was too good an offer to turn down.

    The Brazilian international, currently away with his country at the Copa America, finalised his switch to Old Trafford from FC Porto earlier this week after the club received confirmation of his work permit.

    The 19-year-old admits his desire to work with last season's Premier League Player of the Year was a huge incentive to join the Reds.

    “The chance to play with Cristiano Ronaldo was enough to bring me to United - he is a worldwide star," insisted Anderson. “I can’t wait to set up a goal for him. He is a spectacular player who has improved so much at United and I want to do the same.

    “I will be proud to play alongside him and prove that Brazilians can flourish in the Premier League. I will be a strong player."

    Anderson insists his main priority in his debut season will be to help United retain their Premiership crown.

    “The aim is to win the title and stop Chelsea winning it. I can’t wait," he said. "This is a dream move, one I could not reject. Now I am looking forward to arriving and playing without fear."
    This boy is like a volcano waiting to errupt!!! Power man!

    Papers: Tevez on his way?

    United close in on Tevez as Fergie leaves rivals in the shade
    Manchester United last night appeared to have won the race to sign Carlos Tévez. The West Ham United forward, who is playing in the Copa America in Venezuela, has told his Argentina teammates that a deal has been agreed for him to play at Old Trafford next season.
    Tévez has been coveted by some of the top European clubs this summer, including Inter Milan, Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid, after his rousing performances and seven goals were largely responsible for keeping West Ham in the Premiership last season. Their survival was ensured when his perseverance allowed him to score the only goal in the defeat of United at Old Trafford on a dramatic final day of the season in May.
    It is likely that Tévez will move to United initially on a 12-month loan deal, with a fee of about £4 million payable to Kia Joorabchian, the businessman who owns the economic rights to the player, and wages in excess of £3 million.
    Gary Jacob, The Times

    Meanwhile, The Daily Mail claim Sir Alex has told Alan Smith he has no future at Old Trafford. Smith has recently been linked with moves to Everton and Sunderland.

    The same paper report Real Madrid could poach United fitness coach Valter di Salvo. The Italian previously worked at the Bernabeu alongside the Reds' assistant manager, Carlos Queiroz.

    Elsewhere, The Sun claim Sir Alex has been told he must sell before he can buy any more players. United have already splashed out on Nani, Anderson and Owen Hargreaves and the paper say it's essential the Reds boss now cashes in on some of the squad's fringe players.
    Sad man... smudge got no future in Man u!!!
    RM really dun hav coach also wan to poach our coach!
    Think Man U should buy over RM then the players can interchange between the 2 clubs!

    Wah it seems like this rumour got some basis!

    Man Utd close in on striker Tevez

    West Ham striker Carlos Tevez is set to join Manchester United, BBC sports editor Mihir Bose understands.

    The discussions are under way and Tevez may move on loan or permanently to the Premier League champions.

    Tevez, 23, is currently on international duty with Argentina in the Copa America in Venezuela.

    West Ham have said they want to keep him after he helped them survive in the top flight last season but doubts have remained over his Hammers future.

    "I understand talks have been going on for several weeks now," added Bose.

    "Manchester United are certainly very keen on Carlos Tevez but they are very complicated talks because of the nature of the loan arrangement he has at West Ham.

    "What is going on is whether he goes on a permanent move, which would involve a very high fee. Certainly, Tevez's people would want in the region of what Zinedine Zidane went for when he moved to Real Madrid - about £40m.

    "Or he could go on the same arrangement his colleague Javier Mascherano went to Liverpool under when he left West Ham. That was a two-year deal and a sort of extended loan for a much lower fee."

    League to prevent Tevez transfer to United?

    The Premier League will block Carlos Tevez's expected move to Manchester United unless they are satisfied the transfer fee will go to West Ham.

    The league accepted in April that West Ham had terminated all agreements with Tevez's agent Kia Joorabchian - and will keep a watchful eye on any transfer to ensure that the club keep their promise.

    A Premier League spokesman said: 'As far as we are concerned any deal to take Carlos Tevez away from West Ham has to be done directly with the club.'

    The league's stance means that the Argentina striker's proposed move to Manchester United is far from sealed even if they have agreed a deal in principle with the player's representatives.

    One possible avenue would be for West Ham to be paid a transfer fee and then agree a compensation figure with Joorabchian for breaching contracts with his company Media Sports Investments (MSI) when they terminated those agreements following their £5.5million fine in April for breaching Premier League rules.


    It is understood, though, that the league would want a substantial chunk of the transfer fee to remain at West Ham rather than it all be handed over to MSI in compensation, otherwise they could be accused of merely covering up the third-party agreements that has caused so much controversy.

    The details of a deal for the 23-year-old are still unclear because any attempt to sign him on some kind of loan arrangement would be fraught with problems.

    Tevez is still under contract for three more years with West Ham.

    Given the history surrounding the player, United are certain to go through all the paperwork in minute detail to ensure everything meets Premier League rules.

    Tevez, who is currently in Venezuela with Argentina for the Copa America campaign, has been linked to several clubs in England.

    He told Argentina newspaper Clarin: 'As far as I am aware, I have not received any official offers.

    'Once an offer arrives then we will see. But the fact that Real Madrid, Internazionale and Manchester United are interested in me makes me proud.'

    Tevez: United move would be 'spectacular'

    Carlos Tevez is keen on a 'dream' move to Manchester United - although the deal could yet be blocked by the Premier League.

    The complexities surrounding the 23-year-old's ownership are currently holding up a potential £30million deal being struck, with the League determined that any deal be 'done directly' with the Argentinian's current club West Ham rather than his agent Kia Joorabchian.

    However, Tevez appears to have his heart set on a move to Old Trafford.

    He told the Daily Mail: 'For me, Manchester United will be a sensational destination and to be a member of Sir Alex Ferguson's squad will be absolutely spectacular.

    'My dream is to be an idol in English football and I can achieve this now.'


    The Premier League insist any transfer fee for Tevez must go to the London club as he is still contracted to them for three years and the Hammers have terminated all agreements with Joorabchian.

    United were close to agreeing a two-year deal with an option to sign the 23-year-old for a further two years, but the deal has to satisfy the Premier League that Joorabchian is not being paid a transfer fee.

    A Premier League spokesman told PA Sport: 'As far as we are concerned any deal to take Carlos Tevez away from West Ham has to be done directly with the club.'

    The League's stance means that the Tevez move to Manchester United is far from sealed even if they have agreed a deal in principle with the player's representatives.

    One possible avenue would be for West Ham to be paid a transfer fee and then agree a compensation figure with Joorabchian for breaching contracts with his company Media Sports Investments (MSI) when the Hammers terminated third-party agreements following their £5.5million fine in April for breaching Premier League rules.

    It is understood though the League would want a substantial chunk of the transfer fee to remain at West Ham rather than it all be handed over to MSI in compensation, otherwise they could be accused of merely covering up the third-party agreements that have caused so much controversy.

    Tevez is still under contract for three more years with West Ham but the club have been speaking to Manchester United about a transfer, and the former Boca Juniors and Corinthians player is excited at the prospect.

    'I am a player who thrives on challenges. I went to England to triumph in the Premiership and with West Ham I have achieved that first stage.

    'Now I'm ready to move on to the next stage.'

    U know, Tevez once turned up in a Man Utd jersey during a Corinthians press conference while still playing for them. He was then fined. So I believe that he geniuenly wants to play for Man Utd.

    The transfer will be very complicated but if Mascherano can move to Liverpool without problems then I dun see why Tevez will be block. Unless Liverpool's deal is dodgy as well.

    That's why he tried so hard to scored against MU

    If you look at MU history, most of the player who gave MU a tought time will be bought over, C-Ronaldo, W-Rooney, D-York, T-Sherringham, A-Smith, E-Cantona just to name a few
