Manchester United round-up: Carlos Tevez bemoans big Old Trafford egos

Football News

Former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has revealed that he never felt at home at Old Trafford - because there were too many players with big egos at the club.

The Argentina international, who spent two years with the Red Devils before joining Manchester City in 2009, claims he only felt at home in England once he joined United’s fierce local rivals.

However, Tevez admits he made a mistake at the Etihad Stadium and even considered quitting football as a result.

In an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca, Tevez was asked if he ever felt at home in England, to which he replied: "Not really at Manchester United because there were so many big egos there.

“At City I did, but I made a mistake and paid for it [he refused to come on in a match against Bayern Munich and Roberto Mancini froze him out]. I considered quitting football.”

Tevez played with some big names during his two years at Old Trafford, including Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs and Cristiano Ronaldo.

But which players do you think Tevez was referring to? Should Manchester United have kept the Argentine? Have your say in the comments below!

Andreas Pereira could join Paul Pogba at Juventus

Meanwhile, one of Manchester United’s current players could join Tevez in Turin this summer.

Andreas Pereira, whose contract expires this summer, has admitted he is tempted by the prospect of reuniting with his old pal Paul Pogba at the Juventus Stadium.

Pogba has spoken with the Brazil Under-20 international, who made his senior Manchester United debut earlier this season but is reluctant to sign a contract renewal with the Red Devils, and believes he could be the next Old Trafford starlet to flourish with the Serie A champions.

"Paul is a friend,” Pereira is quoted as saying by Tuttosport. “[He] says that Turin is perfect for me."

David de Gea hasn’t spoken to Van Gaal in months

And finally, a deeply concerning report from Spanish newspaper AS today claims Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has not spoken to goalkeeper David de Gea in months.

The relationship between the two men has reportedly been strained for some time now, hence the reason why Van Gaal has been reluctant to praise De Gea’s performances to the press.

The Spanish keeper’s contract expires in the summer of 2016 - and, if true, this latest development makes a potential move to Real Madrid appear inevitable.
