Ferguson confident of sealing Tevez deal

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is optimistic Carlos Tevez will soon arrive at Old Trafford although he shed no new light on the club's protracted attempts to sign the player. The Argentina star is due to fly into the north-west for a medical which will form the latest stage in the saga to sign him from West Ham. However, Ferguson is hopeful the situation can soon be resolved. Ferguson told MUTV: 'I hope Carlos Tevez arrives....things are bowling along.' Ferguson was speaking after United drew 2-2 with J-League champions Urawa Red Diamonds in Saitama in the first match of their Far East tour. Second-half strikes from Darren Fletcher and Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to have saved Edwin van der Sar's blushes after the veteran goalkeeper inexplicably gifted Hideki Uchidate a 25th-minute opener. But former Feyenoord midfielder Shinji Ono finished off a superb solo effort near the end for a draw. However, the Scot was happy with his team's efforts, saying: 'We tired a bit in the second half. Understandable really with the long journey yesterday - 14, 15 hours travel and they found it difficult to sleep on the first night of course. 'They've applied themselves very well I think, and played some good football at times. We managed to give a few of them a good run out tonight so we're happy with that.' United handed opportunities to youngsters Jonny Evans and Daniel Simpson who both came on in the second half. Ferguson paid tribute saying: 'I think they did okay, I think Jonny maybe could have done better with the second goal but the potential of the lad, he is a fantastic young player. 'Young Simpson did really well, his energy up and down the line was good. I'm happy with that.' He also praised Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney. 'They were excellent. You can see the development of their game, the decision making has been better which is important in young players. We are very pleased with them.'
