Man United may have a return for former player Carlos Tevez planned this month, reports Tuttosport.
Marcus Rashford has been unexpectedly sidelined with an ongoing back injury just in time for Anthony Martial to undergo a bad run of form. United are short of forwards as a consequence as their only other option would be teenager Mason Greenwood.
The Englishman has suffered a double stress fracture and has thus been rendered unable to play for a significant period of time, forcing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to explore his options.
Which may be why the English giants are looking for a short-term replacement in Tevez. The Argentine is currently playing for his local club Boca Juniors but his contract is set to expire at the end of the month.
Boca reportedly have no concrete plans of keeping the striker next season which could enable his move back to England.
The forward registered 34 goals during his 3-year stint at Old Trafford before daring to cross the divide to rivals Man City eventually. Sir Alex Ferguson is said to have been keen on keeping the former Argentine international among his side, but he reportedly rejected the offer to make the switch.
After winning two Premier League titles and a Champions League under Ferguson, the former United man went on to win another Premier League title at City along with an FA Cup. This was followed up by two Serie A titles during his time at Juventus following his departure from England.
The 35-year-old is clearly not the marquee signing United supporters will be looking forward to, but it’s a low-cost and low-risk transfer to cover a huge gap left behind by Rashford till the end of the season.
