Carlos Tevez looks certain to quit Old Trafford after his agent claimed Manchester United have no interest in keeping hold of the Argentine for next season.

Sir Alex Ferguson has previously insisted the club is keen to retain the 25-year-old striker, despite failing to push through a deal.

But agent Adrian Ruocco has dismissed these claims and says United have made no moves to secure a permanent transfer for the player or prolong his loan agreement.

Ruocco told Argentinian newspaper Ole:  "There was no will from the directors and the coach (Sir Alex Ferguson) to sign a new contract.

"On  May 31, he will have no club and no contract. I don't know why, but Manchester (United) have not asked for any renewal (of the loan) nor signing him for next season."

He added: "The directors and the coach do not seem to want him, while on the other hand fans love him."

But Ruocco confirmed there is no shortage of offers for the player who is attracting interest from clubs across the continent.

Manchester City are thought to be lining up a summer swoop for the striker, while Rafa Benitez and Liverpool have also been  mentioned as potential suitors.

Ruocco added:  "He might move to Spain, Italy or stay in England. There are interested clubs from all those countries.

"He has already said he would like to stay in The Premier League because he likes the football in the country, so fortunately he will decide where he will play. He is lucky to have the chance to choose."
