On the day where things were looking good for all in connection to Manchester City, Tevez dropped a hammer blow for all City fans as he made it clear that his intentions are to leave the club this Summer in turn meaning he wants to pretty much leave the club as soon as he can.
This story has been going on for a while now, with Carlos Tevez adamant that he wishes to depart Eastlands and as we all know, his preferred destination is his home country of Argentina. Man City have stated that if Tevez fulfills his contract, in two years time he is allowed to leave on a free.
Mancini completed his first transfer of the Summer, and must have been ecstatic to have been able to get his hands on Clichy for a relatively cheap price of £7 million on a four year contract. The French left-back has been rated by many as one of the best in the Premier League and is still at a tender age of just 25.
Tevez, 27, wasn't an instant success as he was plagued by injuries but once he shook them off, he couldn't stop scoring and has been the most influential player at the City of Manchester Stadium in the past two seasons.
It would be a real shame, especially after helping City to their first top four finish, to see him just leave to play his trade in the relatively unknown league of Argentina. Of course, this is where many of the finest players learned how to play the beautiful game, Messi and Maradona amongst others. But the league isn't at the standard that most European leagues, especially the English one, are at.
His family is living in Argentina and Tevez has expressed his desire to move from England and has said, I'm sure on one occasion, that he doesn't like Manchester. I'm sure most City fans were expecting the inevitable that Tevez would eventually leave but it is quite soon.
If Tevez does get his wish, and does leave before the end of the Summer, then surely all eyes will turn in the direction of Roberto Mancini. The pressure would definitely be on him to splash the cash, and on someone as capable as Tevez. Mancini has been reluctant thus far to spend big but maybe he might have to.
What is your reaction to Tevez saying this? Will he leave?
I would love to hear any comments you may have.
