(CNN) -- Carlos Tevez has dropped his clearest hint that he will leave Manchester United when his two-year 'loan' expires next month.

Tevez looks set to leave Manchester United after failing to claim a regular place in the side this season.

Tevez looks set to leave Manchester United after failing to claim a regular place in the side this season.

Tevez was a regular member of Sir Alex Ferguson's side last season. However, the South American's first-team opportunities have been severely restricted by Dimitar Berbatov's move from Tottenham last summer -- and now it appears that the player is ready to call time on his Old Trafford career.

"Even if you score three or four goals, you do not play in another game. There are many very good players but I need to play," Tevez told Argentine radio station Radio Del Plata. "There are many players and they all need to play but I have not played in important matches."

Tevez's future has been the subject of intense debate for a number of months and Ferguson has decided not to discuss the matter any further, claiming the 24-year-old's future will be resolved in the summer.

United have first refusal on the Argentine's services but it is difficult to see the club's board sanctioning spending a reported £30 million (43.5m) to turn the present arrangement into a permanent one.

But even if the English and European champions did come up with an offer, it appears the former West Ham star would reject it.

"I have many offers, not only from Spain," Tevez claimed. "I need to see which club I can go to and what can be done. We must not only consider the money, I also have to ensure my family feel comfortable, especially my daughter. So I have a lot to think about."
