The 35-year-old Argentinian forward left Manchester United 11 years ago to join crosstown rivals Manchester City.
Interest from the Red Devils comes on the heels of an injury to Marcus Rashford who’s expected to be out of action for at least six weeks with a stress fracture.
Are Manchester United really going to resign Carlos Tevez?
What sounds like social media clickbait appears to have some validity.
After a stint with Shanghai Shenhua in 2017, Tevez returned to his native country to play for boyhood club Boca Juniors for the third time in two decades.
Currently out of the starting lineup with a contract expiring in June, Boca is willing to let Tevez return to England.
However, his controversial move to Manchester City where he won a league title and FA Cup make Tevez's potential return to Old Trafford a nightmare for Red Devils fans.
Do you think United will finalize the move for Tevez? Let us know on Twitter.
