BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentina striker Carlos Tevez is almost certain to leave Manchester United when his two-year loan deal ends next month because he has lost his starting spot this season to Dimitar Berbatov.

Tevez said Wednesday he had offers from Spain and other leagues.

Asked in an Argentine radio interview if this was going to be his last month with Manchester United, Tevez replied: "I think so."

"As a player I can't permit myself to play one game, but not another," Tevez said, speaking from England on radio Del Plata. "And also, the World Cup is coming up. I see it very difficult to stay with Manchester United. That's the reality."

Tevez complained about not being called on to play in important matches. Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has declined to speak about Tevez's future, saying it will be clarified when the season ends.

"You can score three or four goals and not play in the next game," Tevez said. "It gets to your head. I need to play."

Tevez arrived in England and played first with West Ham before moving to Manchester United, which has the last two Premier League titles.

He did not name the clubs that have shown interest in him, but said, "I have a lot of offers, not just from Spain."
