Tevez delays decision on future until after final

MANCHESTER UNITED misfit Carlos Tevez has postponed discussions over his future until after tomorrow&rsquo;s European showdown against Barcelona.<br /><br />The striker&rsquo;s two-year loan ends this summer and a permanent deal looks unlikely to materialise, with Inter Milan, Liverpool and Manchester City reported to want the 25-year-old.<br /><br />But Tevez insists the matter can wait until after the Champions League final, which could mark his last appearance in a United shirt.<br /><br />&ldquo;I want to win the European Cup for the club and the fans. After that we will talk about the future,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;I really like it here and want to be part of the success but right now I don&rsquo;t want anything to distract me from my football.&rdquo;<br /><br />United have not given up on striking a permanent deal with the player&rsquo;s advisor Kia Joorabchian, with further talks planned this month.<br /><br />But Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano has welcomed the prospect of his Argentina team-mate joining him at Anfield.<br /><br />&ldquo;It would be great to have Carlos here with me, I know how good he is,&rdquo; said Mascherano, who together with Tevez moved to England to join West Ham on loan in August 2006. &ldquo;But I don&rsquo;t really know what the situation is, it is certainly a difficult one. He is a great player and a great person.&rdquo;
