Carlos Tevez could be set for a surprise return to Manchester United.
That is according to reports from Italy, which suggest they that they are considering bringing in their former player on loan as cover for Marcus Rashford. The England striker may be out until April with a stress fracture, and with just the inconsistent Anthony Martial and the still very inexperienced Mason Greenwood currently at his disposal, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to boost his attacking options.
Tevez will be 36 next month and currently playing for his home town club Boca Juniors in his native Argentina. However, he is out of contract in the summer, and could be available for a temporary switch as he does not form part of Boca’s long-term plans.
Tevez played for United between 2007 and 2009 before controversially switching to neighbours City. During his first period at Old Trafford he won the Premier League twice, the League Cup, the Champions League, and the FIFA Club World Cup.
