London, Mar.19 (ANI): Manchester United has announced that it will not be able to renew their loan deal with Argentinean Carlos Tevez.
In fact, the only way the Premier League champions can keep the 25-year-old striker after this season is to buy him - and the asking price is 32 million pounds, reports The Sun.
Tevez has been allowed to play for the Red Devils because he signed a two-year loan deal before new Premier League rules came into force last June.
Those regulations forbid similar loan arrangements, where third parties and not a club own players. Tevez is still owned by agent Kia Joorabchian.
Tevez will now go to the highest bidder at the end of the season - but he will not be able to play beyond this summer unless a club buys out his registration. They will then play him - or loan him out. (ANI)
