Why Carlos Tevez WILL sign
9 March 09 by Christopher Hurley
If you look at United’s goal scorers chart this season, you wont be surprised by the names occupying the top four spots; Cristiano Ronaldo (16), Wayne Rooney (16), Dimitar Berbatov (13) and Carlos Tevez (12).
Wayne Rooney cost £30 odd million, so did Berba and I think it’s safe to say any club with the cash would pay £30 million for Cristiano Ronaldo. £30 million sounds like a lot of money to you and I but to a club like United, it is the ‘going rate’ for top quality players.
Make no mistake about it; Carlos Tevez is a top quality player.
There are plenty of technically great footballers. There are also a lot of footballers with a work ethic second to none. There are very few however who possess both of these qualities and when they do come about, you simply cannot pass them up for something as trivial as money.
I suspected a while ago that United were holding out on signing Tevez permanently in an effort to further increase the players efforts and based on his recent performances, I still think that.
Ferguson has notoriously chased the holy grail of four top quality strikers. With Ronaldo in the team, he’ll be happy with three. And that is exactly what he has got now. If Tevez leaves, who will fill his shoes? Danny Welbeck is certainly not ready for 30 games a season and a replacement of Tevez’s quality wont come cheap. No, getting rid of Tevez would be a mistake and an expensive one at that.
Carlos Tevez epitomises Manchester United and he wants to stay. Alex Ferguson wants him to stay; I want him to stay and I’ll even bet you want him to stay. Don’t you?
