Carlos Tevez has again revealed that his future with Premier League giants Manchester United is far from certain. He has hinted that he may well seek a move away from the club at the end of the season.
The Argentina international's two-year loan spell at Old Trafford is set to expire this summer and, although manager Alex Ferguson has said that the club are keen to keep him, they are yet to agree a deal to buy his economic rights.
Furthermore, it seems that ‘El Apache’ has grown frustrated with his limited playing time since the arrival of Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham Hotspur.
The 25-year-old stocky striker has expressed his preference to ply his trade in Spain should he leave the Red Devils, although he has said that he does not favour any particular club.
"It's true, I've spent a lot of time on the bench and I'd like to play more. But every time I'm given a chance I do all I can to do well and take full advantage," Tevez told Cadena COPE.
"It's true I see myself more leaving United than staying here.
"I don't see why I should lie to people or anything because the fans support me a lot as you can see. So I don't have any reason to lie to them.
"While I wear the United shirt I will leave my life on the pitch. You can see that in every game I play. I respect people a lot and I'm grateful to them.
"My future? I don't know what will happen in my future. I would like to go to Spain, yes, but I don't know yet.
"I have no preference for a team . . . we'll see.
"With respect to the fans and the history of Manchester United, I don't want to leave the club. But from a personal aspect, my exit will be the best solution.
"I need continuity in the team to offer my best. If this doesn't happen, I believe this will be my last year."
