Carlos Tevez adviser Kia Joorabchian has refused to rule out the possibility of a Summer move to either Liverpool or Manchester City for the Argentine.

The striker has already stated his desire to remain in Cheshire, for family reasons, after admitting that he is likely to leave Old Trafford.

United have failed to strike a deal for the loanee and are said to be unwilling to put up the £22m required to secure his permanent signing – which has opened up interest from rivals Liverpool and City, along with Tottenham, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Barcelona, who have all been linked with moves.

Joorabchian admitted that his client wishes to remain in England, but Champions League football is not essential to any move – which means that money-rich Manchester City are very much in the running to sign the superstar.

“Everyone wants to play in the biggest competition they can and the Champions League is the biggest, but Carlos is not the kind of person that says I have to play for this club in this situation,” Joorabchian told Sky Sports.

“What he wants to do is to go to a club that has a real ambition to be champions of England and champions of Europe.”

“He would have to go to a rival to achieve that target but he also understands that it is not in his control.”

When asked specifically about the chances of Tevez signing for City, Joorabchian added: “I don’t want to direct, saying it is going to be Liverpool, City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton, Tottenham, Milan, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus.”

Joorabchian did admit the player is likely to leave Old Trafford through after the club failed to offer him a new deal.

“He feels there is a very big chance that his time has come to an end and it is time to move on,” he added.

“He loved his time there, he mentioned that, and the glory he has had there has been very special to him.”

“But the fact that they have not offered him a contract or made any effort to sign him up means that he probably has to move on and think about his own future.”
