Hughes: Loan me Tevez and we'll make you champions

Mark Hughes has offered to take Carlos Tevez off his former club Manchester City's hands - and help them win the title.
QPR boss Hughes admitted it was "probably wishful thinking" that he could bring the work-to-rule Argentine's firepower to Loftus Road.
Hughes brought the best out of Tevez - nine goals in 20 games - when the pair worked together at City.
Now, the Rangers manager has admitted: "I would take him every day of the week. But much as I would love to think it could happen, I'd be very surprised.
"The only thing which might attract City is loaning him out to someone like us, who are not their biggest rivals for the Premier League, and [would] help them to win the title by taking points off their main challengers.
"It's a nice thought, but it's probably wishful thinking that he could end up on loan here. But you never know."
* HUGHES is also set to make one final bid to sign Christopher Samba before Tuesday night's deadline.
Defiant Blackburn are set to hold out for a whopping £12million for their 27-year-old skipper.
But Rangers believe they can reach a compromise to suit both parties.
