What an impact the little Argentine has made in the Premier League since signing for West Ham. It’s strange to think that the Hammers struggled so much with him and Javier Mascherano in the squad, although it took both a while to settle in England and the latter didn’t play that much for his first English club.
Carlos Tevez has been tearing it up for Manchester United this season, scoring nineteen goals, although his Old Trafford future appears far from certain according to the Manchester Evening News. They report that fellow striker Wayne Rooney is desperate for the Red Devils to sign a permanent deal with his partner in crime, rather than continue to farm him out on loan.
“It is crucial to get him signed and I am sure that will happen,” he said.
“Carlos loves playing football here, he’s enjoying it so I don’t see why it will be a problem.
“We saw him at West Ham what a great player he was and how hard he works for the team,” said the England international.
“I had no doubts that we could play together and from training with him when he first came you could immediately see the qualities he had. I couldn’t wait to play with him.
“Towards the end of the season we didn’t play together a lot, but when we did, we did really well.”
Tevez scored a number of crucial goals for Man United last season, in particular the equalisers in the lleague at Ewood Park and White Hart Lane. Surely it’s a long shot that he’s going anywhere else in the summer?
