FORMER Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez is reportedly ‘in talks’ with DC United over a potential move to the MLS.
The ex-United and Manchester City man is currently a free agent after leaving Boca Juniors in the summer.
But now Wayne Rooney’s old club DC United have offered the 38-year-old a return to football, according to The Athletic.
They claim a move is ’25 per cent’ likely to happen, and hinges on whether the club and Tevez can thrash out an agreement over a financial package.
Tevez’s representatives are said to have offered their client to DC United ‘multiple’ times in the last few years, but the club declined on each occasion.
Now though talks are progressing in a positive fashion.
Should Tevez agree a deal, he is not thought to take ‘designated player’ status at the club.
MLS teams are allowed three signings above their usual salary cap, with those three therefore labelled as ‘designated players’.

Fellow MLS teams Minnesota United and Orlando City are also claimed to be interested in a move for free agent Tevez.
The striker took some time off in the summer after the death of his father, but did not formally announce his retirement.
And now he’s eyeing a shock return to the club where Rooney spent two years.
Tevez and Rooney also spent two hugely successful seasons as team-mates at Manchester United.
During Tevez’s time at Old Trafford he helped the club win back-to-back Premier League titles, the Champions League, Club World Club and League Cup.
Rooney joined DC United in 2018 but left after two seasons to take up a player-manager role at Derby County.
He scored 25 goals and provided 14 assists in just 52 games for the Washington based side.
