Manchester City has stated that their Argentinian star striker Carlos Tevez can leave the club at the next transfer window, only if the other club is willing to splash out a massive £50 million for him.
Carlos Tevez has been one of the start performers for the club so far this season, being the club’s top scorer with 18 goals, with a total of 51 goals in 82 appearances for Manchester City and still has three years remaining on his current contract.
Former Liverpool sensation Fernando Torres’s shocking £50 million move to Chelsea in the January transfer window has set a benchmark, with Manchester City no longer appearing to have the appetite to persuade Carlos Tevez to change his mind, as they did when he put in a transfer request last December. Instead, Manchester City’s top-level management are reluctantly planning for a future without the Argentinian on condition he joins Fernando Torres, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kaká as the only footballers to command transfer fees £50 million or more.
According to The Times, it has been speculated that Tevez’s sale would provide Mancini with valuable resources to reinvest in the squad without adding to the club’s financial headache over Fair Play.
Meanwhile, Emmanuel Adebayor, Jo and Roque Santa Cruz are all likely to leave the Eastlands after falling out of favour and repeatedly failing to break into the starting 11 due to the likes of Edin Dzeko, David Silva, Adam Johnson and Mario Balotelli.
