Following the Tevez transfer saga – as it turns out he wasn’t that homesick after all – which ended with the handsome Argentine staying put at City, it emerged that apparently Tevez was ready to jump ship from City. This until he realised that he wasn’t homesick and was absolutely loaded and with no chance of anyone affording him whilst he’s within contract. But where was he set to go to? Rumour has it he would’ve returned to former employers, none other than Manchester United. Yes that’s right, he would’ve crossed back to the other side.
And now with fresh interest from Real Madrid and Inter Milan, can City keep their star striker and Captain Fantastic? It has been reported that Jose Mourinho desperately wants to alleviate his striker crisis and sign Tevez, a player he has admired for some time. And rumours are afoot that Inter Milan are considering an offer of Samuel Eto’o, plus cash, for the pin-up boy of Eastlands.
Can City resist overtures from Europe’s elite? Will young Carlos be tempted to move if he thinks the Premiership title is out of his reach? Can he now rejoin his teammates with the same level of respect and admiration? Or is his relationship with Mancini too fraught?
And if he is to leave City for Real or Inter whilst still under contract, how much will he cost? The mind boggles.
