Tevez: wait and see

Filed: Monday, 7th May 2007

Eggert Magnusson has revealed that he will make a decision about Carlos Tevez's future once the current season has ended.

The 23-year-old Argentine scored twice against Bolton on Saturday to take his tally for the season to five, whilst playing a major role in United's other goal scored by Mark Noble.

Of course, should the Hammers fall at the final hurdle next week and suffer what would now amount to a heartbreaking relegation Tevez will definitely be off. But should the Hammers do enough at Old Trafford stay up, Magnusson isn't ruling out the possibility of a bid for his services come summer.

"From my point of view I would still like to see him at West Ham for the next few seasons," Magnusson told 5Live, "but there are a lot of things that need to be resolved before that happens.

I don't know where we stand - this is something we need to discuss once the season ends. But I wouldn't be surprised if there's interest from other clubs. We'll have to see how things develop.

"He's a great lad, a great footballer and really loves his football. I think he like playing for West Ham - and you all know how the fans adore him."
