Report: Man Utd line up sensational Carlos Tevez transfer

Will Ford

Manchester United are reportedly lining up a sensational move for former striker Carlos Tevez.

With Marcus Rashford suffering a double stress fracture in his back – which could see him out for the rest of the season – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for potential replacements.

And, 11 years after he crossed Manchester to join rivals City, Tevez has been identified as a possibility, according to Tuttosport.

The 35-year-old is in his third spell at home town club Boca Juniors, but is out of contract in June, and would represent a low-cost solution and provide an experienced head in the United dressing room.

 

 

In his previous spell at Old Trafford between 2007 and 2009 Tevez scored 34 times, winning two Premier League titles and the Champions League.

Solskjaer has made no secret of his desire to make signings in January after a poor run of form sees them six points off fourth place in the Premier League.
