Manchester United has made another big leap forward by probably signing Argentina and West Ham striker Carlos Tevez, thereby spending huge sums in the transfer market and achieving much success. Early summer, Owen Hargreaves, Nani and Anderson have also been signed, so far. United had approched Tevez with the same offer last year, but it was turned down. Presently, Carlos is engaged in playing the Copa America 2007. Being regarded as one of the most promising prospects to come out of Argentina, Diego Maradona the legend, once described him as the ‘Argentine prophet for the 21st century’. Tevez played a pivot-role of Boca’s victory in the 2003 Copa Libertadores but his far greatest achievement was during the 2004 Olympic Games, where he won the gold medal with his team and scored eight goals in six matches to be the top scorer, of the competition. The International Federation of Football History and Statistics have rated him the world’s second Top Goal Scorer of 2004 in international competitions, one less than Ali Daei from Iran. Tevez was selected for Argentina in the 2006 World Cup and posted an impressive show. In Argentina’s drawn final Group C match against Holland, Tevez played the entire duration and emerged man of the match. He has been in controversies last season, in the Premiership. His transfer from the Brazilian club Corinthians led to a £5.5 million fine for the Hammers, consequently Sheffield United have launched a legal battle claiming West Ham should have been deducted points and therefore relegated. Despite the claims, Tevez impressed at Upton Park and scored some crucial goals to keep West Ham soaring high.
