Green, who was speaking at the launch of Sells Goalkeeping Products' new range launch at Bisham Abbey, was convinced his former Norwich team-mate could excite the Upton Park faithful as much as Tevez had.
"He is a British-style player while Carlos is South American so in many respects they are very different but there are also many similarities."
And Green says Tevez would be welcome back at Upton Park should his move to United fall through.
He said: "He might have to come back and if he does and says to the lads he wants to give it 100% then I would be pleased to see him.
"We are now into August and I'm still answering questions about it so once it is sorted it will be time to move on and wherever Carlos is he can play the wonderful stuff he was doing last season and we can get on with our jobs as well."
