Manchester City's want-away striker Carlos Tevez may be preparing to make a sensational return to former club and bitter rivals Manchester United according to football agent Peppino Tirri.
The Argentine forward has experienced a tumultuous few months at the Etihad Stadium after handing in a transfer request in the summer, but failing to engineer a move away from the club.
Tevez has found himself in hot water again, and is currently suspended by the club pending an investigation into his alleged refusal to come on as substitute in Manchester City's UEFA Champions League encounter with Bayern Munich.
Roberto Mancini lambasted his actions and said he would never play for the club again, but wouldn't have anticipated talks of a return to Old Trafford.
It is not yet clear whether Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson would welcome him back at Manchester United, after Tevez left the club on unsavoury terms in 2009 - but Italian representative Tirri said it would be foolish to rule out a move.
"I really think at this point Tevez will be sold during the next market window," he said. "[But] where will he end up?
"I think the hypothesis is not currently viable at Inter: Inter do not need him, they have already forwards like Forlan, Milito, Pazzini, Zarate and Castaignos.
"The same is true when it comes to Real Madrid. More plausible is the road to Juventus which would certainly be more convenient.
"Do not discard the possibility that he could still stay in England and maybe return to Manchester United."
Despite a surplus of attacking options at the club with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck, Michael Owen, and Dimitar Berbatov, it appears that a move for Tevez could still be a possibility.
