Old Trafford boss could make move for Etihad Stadium misfit according to this agent.
Following a tumultuous few months at Manchester City, Carlos Tevez may be preparing to make a sensational return to former club and bitter rivals Manchester United according to agent Peppino Tirri, after falling out with current boss Roberto Mancini and finding his position at Eastlands untenable.
Italian agent Peppino Tirri has now stunningly hinted that Tevez could be ready to make a sensational return to Manchester United – a club he scored 19 goals for but ultimately left on unsavoury terms with in 2009 – with limited offers coming in for the unsettled forward at present.
“I really think at this point Tevez will be sold during the next market window,” Tirri revealed.
“Where will he end up? I think the hypothesis is not currently viable at Inter: Inter do not need him, they have already forwards like Forlan, Milito, Pazzini, Zarate and Castaignos.
“The same is true when it comes to Real Madrid. More plausible is the road to Juventus which would certainly be more convenient.
“Do not discard the possibility that he could still stay in England and maybe return to United.”
For those of you who do not know who Peppino Tirri is, he is considered one of the foremost leeches, sorry agents, in Europe. He is responsible for a number of high profile transfers including ones involving Samuel Eto’o, Wesley Sneijder and Thomas Gravesen but one can only imagine he must have been drunk when he made these comments.
There is zero chance that Sir Alex Ferguson would sign Carlos Tevez, in fact, less than zero. The Man City striker was a player Sir Alex Ferguson chose to pass on, electing not to permanently sign a player who appears to be the plaything of another slug like agent, Mr Kia Joorabchian and is clearly not stupid enough to make the same mistake twice.
Tevez is certain to leave the Etihad Stadium but it appears that offers for the Argentine are fairly few and far between because clubs can see the potential headache and possible instability such a transfer could cause. There is no doubting the 27 year old’s ability on the field of play but no one is quite prepared to make the financial gamble to sign him.
Apart from anything else Ferguson has a wealth of attacking options as it is. His first choice pairing of Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez has proved fruitful and youngster Danny Welbeck has emerged on the scene leaving veterans Michael Owen and Dimitar Berbatov twiddling their thumbs waiting for an injury.
Tevez has most recently been linked with a move to Dubai and that seems the most likely scenario now, not least as the Man City man has played in the Champions League already this season so is unlikely to be the subject of a January bid from a side in the competition.
Roberto Mancini is finished with Tevez and even if the player wins his appeal against the suspension in relation to his refusal to play against Bayern Munich the Italian boss has already signed his replacement in Sergio Aguero. The Man City boss has then watched as both Edin Dzeko and Mario Balotelli has put in much improved performances this term.
