Tevez Future Uncertain

Where or where will Carlos Tevez be next season? Chelsea is interested, so is Real Madrid, and there isn't a thing West Ham United, his current, uh, employer, can do about it. Tevez representative (and part-owner, incidentally) Kia Joorabchian is set to meet this week with West Ham chairman Eggert Magnusson to discuss the player's future. The Independent points out that if neither Chelsea nor Real meet Joorabchian and co.'s asking price, a deal might even be worked out to keep the Argentine at Upton Park next season. Don't bet on it, though, not after the whole world saw Tevez single-handedly save beleaguered West Ham from relegation.

If Tevez moves, it will be interesting to see whether West Ham receives a transfer fee-after all, he is under West Ham registration and the club's contract with the player's financiers has was torn up a few weeks ago and replaced with a new one. Don't count on that, either, says the Independent, as Joorabchian and his little consortium own the player's economic rights and would most likely sue West Ham if it received a transfer fee.

At a press conference in Argentina last Friday said it's time for him to join a "European giant," although he seemed to contradict that statement later when he said, "despite any offer that could arrive, what I want to say is that West Ham has priority."
