Carlos Tevez today issues a come-and-get-me plea to Manchester United’s Premier League rivals by insisting: My Old Trafford career is over.
The on-loan striker is angry at being left on the bench for long periods and claims United boss Sir Alex Ferguson hasn’t tried to sign him permanently.

Tevez’s shock bombshell will alert Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton and Aston Villa – while Iranian businessman Kia Joorabchian’s company, which owns the player, has also received a £45million offer from a foreign club.
In an exclusive interview, Tevez, 25, declares: “I am very sad about this but I guess what I’m saying is goodbye.
“I don’t think I will be a Manchester United player next season. I have done everything I possibly can but they have never made me an offer so I have to leave. I think I will be at another club next season.”
But the Argentinian insists he wants to stay here. He said: “I want to play in England because it is the best league in the world and it suits my style.”
“I would like to thank the United fans for their support. They will always have a special place in my heart.
“If I was a United fan I wouldn’t want to see their player in any other shirt but I think they will accept I’ve done everything I can.”

I think the key portion of the nippy attacker’s interview with the NOTW is the one that relates to him wearing another shirt and how United fans may react that possibility. This could lead many to believe that a) he is likely to stay in the Premier League and b) it could mean a move to either of their direct rivals Man City or Liverpool.
So how would the United fans react? Well i think they will understand that Carlos has done all he can to try to earn a permanent deal at Old Trafford and i would expect the Argentine would get the same warm reception the striker enjoys when he returns to Upton Park.
Liverpool need a foil for Torres and in many ways Tevez could be ideal for the situation but he won’t come cheap and would most likely mean Rafa having to smash the clubs transfer record to purchase him. Man City of course have no such financial constraints but the United Number 32 may consider this a step backwards in terms of his career progression albeit one that no doubt would be financially lucrative i don’t think money would motivate such a move, unless he believed the club was really going places.
I think Everton and Aston Villa can be ruled out of the equation and with no offence meant to either club, i simply don’t see such a move as even remotely possible. Which leaves Chelsea. The west London club seem a bit directionless at present and by that i mean, they are not sure of who will be at their helm next term and a number of players could be on their way from the club, however that said, they are clearly a side that are going to challenge on all fronts year in year out so maybe a move to Stamford Bridge would be a good fit.
Tevez to Liverpool or Man City: Don’t bet against it
Tevez to Chelsea: Dependent on stability being restored but could be a distinct possibility.
