London : World football governing body FIFA and the English Football Association (FA) legal representatives will meet Monday to discuss the Carlos Tevez saga.
English Premier League clubs Manchester United and West Ham United have asked FIFA to settle a dispute over who owns the 23-year-old Argentine striker, reports BBC.
FIFA spokesman Andreas Herren said: "My understanding is that a senior lawyer from the FA will come to Zurich to meet our senior legal people."
Manchester United is expecting the Tevez affair to be resolved before the transfer window closes Aug 31.
United chief executive David Gill said: "FIFA and other authorities concerned will try to make sure that the player can play, whether it's for United or West Ham.
"I think they will do everything they can to make sure the decision is made within the appropriate period."
Tevez is registered as a West Ham player, but businessman Kia Joorabchian claims he owns the striker's economic rights and is therefore entitled to any transfer fee that United pay for the Argentine.
