Argentina coach Diego Maradona has urged Carlos Tevez to quit Manchester United.

Maradona told Italian reporters: "Yesterday I saw a lot of Manchester United who won, but it was done without Tevez. This situation is not good for him."

Asked if Tevez could leave England, Maradona replied: "To be sure, this situation is leading to a goodbye. Italy and Inter Milan, in particular, would be great for him.

"Among other things, the fact that his contract has expired suggests a change of shirt. "
