Kia Joorabchian has claimed that 'two of the biggest clubs in the world' are in the hunt to sign Carlos Tevez.

Joorabchian, speaking last night also revealed that the 23-year-old stiker is yet to begin discussions with regard to this future - although a return to East London hasn't yet been fully ruled out.

"I went out to dinner with Carlos last night," said Joorabchian, "but there was not one word about his future.

"Three clubs had made it clear they wanted to sign him but I told them to wait until the season had finished - Carlos did not want to discuss his future as he was so wrapped up in wanting to keep West Ham up.

"I'll go to the Champions League final, then talk to the clubs who want to buy him. I'll sit down with West Ham, too, if they want to talk to me about keeping him because you never know. But there are two of the biggest clubs in the world who want him."

One club ruled out of making a move for the Argentinian so far are Liverpool, who had previously registered an interest.

"I often speak with Rafa Benitez," added Joorabchain. "After all, I do have a player with Liverpool.

"But we haven't discussed Carlos. The clubs that are interested will have their chance once Carlos has come down from his high and has time to think about his future."
