Sources inside Loftus Road have reignited the chance of Manchester City outcast Carlos Tevez joining QPR on-loan until the end of the season.
Reports had suggested earlier in the month that Tevez was keen on joining up with former manager Mark Hughes in west-London but QPR, despite their riches, were unable to fund the deal on a permanent basis.
Hughes had thrown in the towel on a six-month-loan deal also because of the likelihood that Tevez would have found another club by the end of the window. However, AC Milan have failed in their bid to lure the player from his current nightmare at City and it is looking like the £200,000 per week Tevez will be left to rot in the reserves at City for the remainder of the season. Not a scenario the player and his club would be happy with.
City aren’t keen on allowing their player to leave on loan either as they would end up compensating a lot of his salary in that time, but allegedly Hughes is trying to convince their board that loaning the player to another Premier League team like Rangers could actually enhance City’s title ambitions. Not only would QPR benefit from Tevez’s goals, City could as it is likely that he could do some damage to their title-rivals whilst playing for the Hoops.
Tevez and recently acquired QPR boss Hughes formed a strong working relationship at Manchester City when Hughes was manager and have kept in contact over the past year as they have the same Chairman Tony Fernandes.
If no permanent deal for the player can be agreed, and that is looking increasingly possible with PSG and AC Milan stalling, then a loan move might be the only option left for City.
With QPR and Hughes are ready to strike.
