London, May 22 (ANI): Argentinean playmaker Carlos Tevez will be a substitute for the Champions League final in Rome, signalling his eminent exit from Manchester United.
Dimitar Berbatov will join him on the bench for the game against Barcelona, as coach Sir Alex Ferguson sticks with the strikers who destroyed Arsenal in the semi-final.
Tevez will see it as the final insult, proving that he must leave to get regular first-team football, The Sun reports.
Even if United come up with the deal needed to make his loan move permanent, Tevez is now convinced he has to quit Old Trafford.
And despite interest from Tottenham Spurs and Real Madrid, the striker has his sights set on United's rivals and neighbours Liverpool.
Ferguson is preparing to stick with the team that destroyed the Gunners in the semi-final second leg.
There will be one exception for Wednesday's final as Ryan Giggs replaces the banned Darren Fletcher.
Ferguson will go with Cristiano Ronaldo as striker with Wayne Rooney on his left and the industrious Ji Park Sung to the right.
Michael Carrick, Anderson and Giggs make up the midfield three.
Anderson has come to the fore in Europe after Ferguson chose him for the away leg against Porto in the quarterfinal and both Arsenal ties.
The defence picks itself with John O'Shea at right-back, Rio Ferdinand partnering Nemanja Vidic in the middle and Patrice Evra on the left. Edwin van der Sar will, of course, be in goal for the defending champions.
Ferguson sees this line-up as a major threat on the break against the flair of Spanish champions Barcelona. (ANI)
