There is still no news from Manchester United on the Carlos Tevez saga. It took forever and a day to sign him, and now it is taking even longer to put an end to this transfer issue.
Real Madrid have shown an interest in him. They have also been showing an interest in Manchester United target Mario Gomez.
The Stuttgart striker has been watched by scouts from United several times. Given this fact, it looks like Tevez is being edged out the door.
The news comes from Sport Bild.
Manchester United and Real Madrid could be joined in the race for Gomez's signature by Barcelona too. With a contract set to last until 2012, he won't come cheap. But that said, a striker who has scored 24 times in 31 matches won't be available at a bargain price anyway.
He does have a buy-out clause in his contract for this summer, believed to be in the region of €35 million, which could be agreeable to any of the clubs after him.
If he were to move to Madrid it seems likely that he would either be used as a replacement for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who has not settled well in Spain, or as a long-term replacement for Raul. With United he would more than likely replace Carlos Tevez, who appears to be on the way out from United
