Sky Sports report that Carlos Tevez has still not made up his mind about leaving United even though earlier rumours stated that he had all but agreed a switch to Citeh.

Well, on this front I’m inclined to believe that Sky got it wrong: I can’t see Tevez staying at United. We can debate whether it’s good news or not but the signs point to his exit.

His behaviour over the last few weeks was little short of a disgrace, what with his appeals to the fans – who played their part like ignorant sheep, I should add – and his public comments about United. He must have seriously displeased Fergie who, to my astonishment, apparently still tried to do everything to prevent him from leaving.

The speculation that Tevez wants guarantees of a regular first-team place won’t go away: it seems he indeed believes that he’s been mistreated and that he should start every big game – so he’s still not pleased, despite twice starting against Liverpool and against Arsenal as well.

The writing’s been on the wall for a long time now and I believe Tevez is only waiting for MSI’s permission to sign for Manchester City. Joorabchian and co. might be debating whether our neighbours have a sufficiently high profile so that Tevez could still generate sufficient income from marketing as well but I don’t think it will stand in a way of a deal.

Tevez, I’m quite certain, has made up his mind. Good luck to him.
