The Argentinian striker believes his time is up at Manchester United but wishes to stay in the Premier League.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp loves the player so much he will try to buy him from his owners for around �25million.

Wheeler-dealer Redknapp is planning a major clearout at White Hart Lane in a bid to raise substantial funds for new players.

He reckons Tevez could take Spurs to the next level and give them a chance of competing for Champions League places. But he recognises Tottenham would be outsiders with so many clubs after Tevez.

Tevez insiders insisted: “There are lots of different clubs all over Europe who want Tevez and each one is being considered carefully.

“Spurs would really like him but there are questions about whether they can raise the money quickly enough.

“Tevez would like his future sorted out soon and Spurs will have to do a lot of work if they want to get him.”

Meanwhile, Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has refused to rule out signing the Argentine if the 25-year-old is allowed to leave Old Trafford. (The Times)
