Tevez on way to Man Utd as Kia pays £2M

The Daily Mail says Tevez will finally sign for Manchester United after his 'owner' Kia Joorabchian and West Ham reached an out-of-court agreement last night.

Joorabchian's company, MSI, have agreed to pay West Ham £2million to release Tevez's registration and clear the way for him to complete his move to United.

The Premier League are expected to rubber-stamp the details of the deal today, an action which will also end a very uncomfortable period for chief executive Richard Scudamore. Tevez, 23, has long since agreed personal terms with United and the Argentina forward will fly into the country this weekend to tie up the details of his move.

He has already passed a medical at Old Trafford - before West Ham withdrew permission for his move - so another will be a mere formality.

United will pay Joorabchian £10m to acquire Tevez on what is effectively a two-year loan deal - worth £4.5m in wages a year to the player - and then have the option to make the transfer permanent for another three years for a further £25m.
