My two cents on Carlos Tevez loaned to Man U..
Recently,headlines were spreading about an apparent loan deal for Carlos Tevez to Manchester United. Earlier, it was reported that the player was on the "to-be-bought" list of Manchester United but because of the on-going problem regarding the ownership of the Argentian player still in the courts, the Premiership announced that it will intervene any move made to buy the player. To avoid this problem. Manchester United are preparing to take Carlos Tevez on loan, just like his compatriot, Javier Mascherano's move to Liverpool late last season. Now, Carlos Tevez is undoubtedly talented and skilled with the ball. This has made most Manchester United fans rejoice on the prospect of Tevez leading the attack on the coming season's matches. BUT AM I THE ONLY ONE,WHO REMEMBERS MANCHESTER UNITED'S LUCK WITH SOUTH AMERICAN PLAYERS.Remember Juan Sebastian Veron, Diego Forlan and even Kleberson. These players never made a real impact with the team although, they were successful with other teams in mainly other leagues. Diego Forlan became the top scorer in La Liga the season he was sold to Villareal CF. Sure, Carlos Tevez had almost a season of experience in the premiership with West Ham United but will he really fit with the Manchester United style of play. With purchase of Owen Hargreaves, Nani and Anderson, the team does look like its opting more for flair and attack minded football. The team even played attractive football last season which is partially due to Cristiano Ronaldo but will this style of play continue and will it actually give them the same success as they have had in the previous year. Whether Carlos Tevez will make an impact with Manchester United is still a big question but I really wouldn't hold my breath :)
