Carlos Tevez's future will be decided in the next two weeks with Manchester City emerging as favourites for his signature.
The Argentina international's two-year loan stay with Manchester United officially finishes at the end of this month, with the Red Devils failing to agree a permanent extension.
Tevez's adviser Kia Joorabchian confirmed that City, Chelsea and one other unnamed club were now in the running to land the bustling forward, with a resolution expected in the coming days.
Joorabchian told Radio del Plata: "In the next two weeks, Carlos, Adrian (Rouco, Tevez's agent) and I will meet to sort this out.
"City is a club with most of the chances because they are building a big squad, but it is not a decisive point.
"The contract with United officially runs to until June 30 and we'll respect that. After July 1, we'll see. We may be defined in 10 days."
Last weekend, Tevez turned down a lucrative five-year offer to stay at Old Trafford, with Joorabchian claiming United were made to pay for their brinkmanship.
He added: "Carlitos has never asked United for money, he has never complained about his contract. It is not a problem regarding money, but we never talked about that in two years.
"In two years, (United manager Sir Alex) Ferguson always said we were going to sit down to negotiate but we never did so.
"He sent an offer, but it was too late because they had not offered anything in two years."
