We thought he was going to France. Then, ‘official’ reports said Milan was his real destination, despite protest from Mancini. Now, a ‘tired’ Carlos Tevez has said he is ready to settle down in Argentina, but will City allow it?
Milan’s Adriano Galliani submitted a loan bid for the striker last week but it was ultimately turned down by Mancini. City’s Italian manager has estimated Tevez’ worth to be in the vicinity of €35 million, however, Milan are unwilling to shell out that type of money.
PSG, on the other hand, are ready to spend big on the Argentine international. According to sources from the club, PSG’s Qatari owners are keen on bringing a veteran player to the club in an effort to add experience to the squad, though an official bid has yet to be submitted. Unfortunately, neither move seems a possibility as the stubborn striker remains hiding in his South American residence.
The 29 year old has refused to rejoin the Manchester City squad after being hit with a massive fine, thought to be in the region of €400,000, for his behavior during City’s fixture against Bayern.
In an interview conducted by Gente magazine, Tevez expressed his desire to return to Boca Juniors. He claims the constants traveling to and from England has left him weary and in need of a break.
“I don’t care if I lose money. I’m tired of travelling and going back and forth. I’m not coming back to England. I want to go to pre-season with Boca and play Libertadores with them.”
Tevez won the Copa Libertadores once before with Boca, in 2003, and seems keen on doing it again. Unfortunately, with Manchester City holding out for nothing less than a whopping €35 million, his ‘dream’ move seems unlikely.
