STRIKER FOR HIRE
“Tevez future to decided in next ten days”
Carlos Tevez is considering offers from Manchester City, Chelsea and one other club, according to the player’s adviser Kia Joorabchian.
After Tevez decided not to renew his contract with Manchester United, despite being made the offer by the Old Trafford club that he had long been waiting for, Joorabchian commented the Argentinian’s future will be defined in “about 10 days” and hinted City were in pole position to sign the player.
Joorabchian told Radio del Plata: “Right now we are evaluating the proposals from Manchester City, Chelsea and one other team.
“In the next two weeks, Carlos, Adrian (Rouco, Tevez’s agent) and I will meet to sort this out.
“City is a club with most of the chances because they are building a big squad, but it is not a decisive point.
“The contract with United officially runs to until June 31 and we’ll respect that. After July 1, we’ll see. We may be defined in 10 days.”
Last weekend, Tevez turned down a lucrative five-year offer to stay at Old Trafford, with Joorabchian making clear it arrived too late.
“Carlitos has never asked United for money, he has never complained about his contract. It is not a problem regarding money, but we never talked about that in two years.
“In two years, (United manager Sir Alex) Ferguson always said we were going to sit down to negotiate but we never did so. He sent an offer, but it was too late because they had not offered anything in two years.”
