Tevez reiterates desire to leave Old Trafford

Carlos Tevez has admitted he is likely to leave Manchester United at the end of the season, after growing tired of life on the bench.

Tevez has failed to hold down a place in the starting XI this season and is unhappy with his lack of action, while there has as yet been no agreement to turn the Argentinian striker's loan spell into a permanent deal and he has revealed he would like a move to Spain.

He told Madrid's Cadena COPE radio station: ''It's true I've spent a lot of time on the bench and I'd like to play more. But every time I'm given a chance I do all I can to do well and take full advantage.

''Yes it's true I see myself more leaving United than staying here. I don't see why I should lie to people or anything because the fans support me a lot, as you can see. So I don't have any reason to lie to them.

''While I wear the United shirt, I will leave my life on the pitch. My future? I don't know what will happen for my future. I would like to go to Spain, yes, but I don't know yet. I have no preference for a team.

''With respect to the fans and the history of Manchester United, I don't want to leave the club. But, from a personal aspect, my exit will be the best solution.

''I need continuity in the team to offer my best. If this doesn't happen I believe this will be my last year,'' he added.
