City emerge as favourites to sign Tevez

Carlos Tevez is considering offers from Chelsea, Manchester City and another unnamed club according to the Argentina striker's agent Kia Joorabchian.

Last week Tevez rejected a lucrative five-year deal to remain at Old Trafford and Joorabchian told Radio del Plata that the 25-year-old will decide on his future in the next ten days hinting that City are the front runners to secure the player's services.

"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," the player's agent said.

"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 30 June and we'll respect that. After 1 July, we'll see. We may be defined in 10 days."

Joorabchian made it clear that Tevez decided to walk away from Old Trafford because Sir Alex Ferguson stalled on offering the player a contract: "In two years, 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."
