Despite City’s wage offers in excess of the £250k p/w Wayne Rooney is taking home at Manchester United, Tevez is ready to turn his back on his life in the north of England.
Sources close to the Argentine star have allegedly revealed that the striker and his family are unhappy in England and are desperate for a move back to Argentina where the star hopes to resign for former club Boca Juniors.
There is still 3 and a half years to go on his 5 year contract at Eastlands which will send his transfer fee through the roof. This could price Boca out of the market and place top European clubs like Barcalona and Real Madrid on red alert.
The Blues believed that they had reached an agreement with Tevez to keep him happy during the week. The talismanic forward signed a two-year agreement on a new house in the footballers’ Cheshire enclave of Mottram. Furthermore, the Argentine had even told club officials that he was looking to invest in a plot of land big enough to build his own house and construct a three-hole golf course.
Goal.com are now reporting that City have outright rejected the Argentine’s transfer request and the striker will still be open for match selection. However, the unsettled striker’s future will now certainly be in doubt and it will be hard to envisage Tevez playing in a City shirt come the start of next season.
Tevez has been reported to have been at the centre of a host of fall outs at City this season. Only last week he very openly displayed his frustration at manager, Roberto Mancini, following a substitution against Bolton.
Frontrunners for Tevez signature have to be Real Madrid. The Spanish giants had been chasing the former United star prior to his £25.5million move to City and are likely to reignite their interest. An offer above £40million may be enough to turn heads at Eastlands.
