Tevez closes in on United move

Carlos Tevez is due to undergo a medical in Venezuela later on Friday as Manchester United close in on a deal for the West Ham striker which could eventually be worth in excess of £30million.

If all goes to plan, an announcement that a deal has been agreed between Tevez´s adviser Kia Joorabchian and the Barclays Premier League champions could be made later on Friday.

It is understood from sources close to the discussions that Tevez will initially join United on a two-year loan deal with the option of a further three years.
