Man Utd's Tevez in line to face Reading

Carlos Tevez could be in line for his Manchester United debut against Reading on Sunday.

The Premier League is satisfied that West Ham have been paid a £2m settlement agreed last week, meaning the player has been released from his contract and his registration made available. United submitted their proposed two-year loan deal for Tevez and the League are now scrutinising the contract.

Given that a similar deal took Javier Mascherano to Liverpool last season, United should receive clearance before Sunday but, having not played since the Copa America final on July 16, Tevez's fitness remains a concern.
