Tevez like to part ways

BUENOS AIRES: Argentina striker Carlos Tevez is almost certain to leave Manchester United when his two-year loan deal ends next month because he has lost his starting spot this season to Dimitar Berbatov. Tevez said on Wednesday he had offers from Spain and other leagues. Asked if this was going to be his last month with United, Tevez replied: "I think so." "As a player I can't permit myself to play one game, but not another," Tevez said. "And also, the World Cup is coming up. I see it very difficult to stay. That's the reality." — AP
