Tevez To Ditch Manchester United For Real Madrid? Los Blancos are lining up a summer swoop for 'Apache' as Fergie and co continue to dither over his p

The Sun, that blinding beacon of journalistic integrity, claims that Real Madrid will attempt to take Carlos Tevez from Manchester United at the end of the season.

The Argentine forward is approaching to conclusion of his two-year loan spell at Old Trafford, and yet still no permanent contract has been put on the table.

It was initially hoped that a deal would be signed, sealed and settled last summer, but Sir Alex Ferguson's decision to buy Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham Hotspur scuppered those plans.

The Red Devils pre-agreed a fee of around €34 million with Media Sports Investment, the firm which owns Tevez's rights, but now the club are reportedly uncomfortable with that evaluation.

And now that the 24-year-old has slipped behind Berbatov in the pecking order, there is a very real possibility that he could leave United once his loan expires.

However, it remains to be seen whether the giants of the Bernabeu are actually interested in Tevez, given they already have Raul, Gonzalo Higuain and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar at their disposal - not to mentioned the injured Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Inter Milan have also been linked with Tevez.
