Carlos Tevez


Gary Owen from Channel M's 'City Debate Show' says if Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez became available City should consider snapping him up.

Speculation circulating around Old Trafford suggests Sir Alex Ferguson is in favour of signing the Argentinean on a permanent deal, however the reported 30 million asking price is more than the club can either afford, or willing to pay.

Will Tevez stay at United? Have your say on our forums.

As I understand it Tevez would cost United 24 mill (30 mill less the 6 mill they have already paid for his 2 years loan deal). I would love him at city good player and a def slap in the face for the ragbaggers.

The rags are just using the delay and the media fuss as a negotiating tactic. If we beat the price they're offering then maybe we stand a chance of signing tevez, but I do expect him to stay with the rags.

Tevezs owner kia korabichan siad on sky "tevez would like to play in the champions league, but he is more interested in joining a ambitious club" Thats a clear indication he is open to coming to city. Here are the reasons why i think tevez will come city, 1) city will out bid any team and him the best contract 2) tevez loves living in chesire 3) tevez formed a good partnership with jo at corinthians in brasil and zableta is his friend 4) tevez has made shocked transfers all his career - boca to corinthians (top or poor argentian players never play in the brasilian league ) corinthians to west ham (despite being linked with juventus and inter) A move to city wouldnt be beyond the realm. 5) kia koribchan helped broker the robinho deal, so he has close links to adug/khaldoon. A transfer to city would be the best option financially for tevez....and kia 6) Tevez can become a instant legend at city, he can gain cantona, charlton, best status IF city are successfully over the next ten years. Tevez would never achieve such status at utd. 6) What better way to stick it up fergie, than to play for his rivals :) 7) Citys kit is the closest to argentina kit in the premierleague. 8) City can guarantee the constant pursue for the best players in the planet. So city will be always competitive. In a nut shell i believe tevez will come. I think utd will replace tevez with benzema, whos a far better finisher, but a his game isnt complete like tevez. I believe also tevezs advisors will be angling for a city move. Kia will play a part in most transfer to city this summer. He was involved with the kaka bid. If we do get him, we still need another quality striker alongside him. Henry, villa or eto would do. Not Sant cruz.

Deco?!!!! Dear Mr Haigh, would that be the same Deco that bent over backwards to diss City at every opportunity this summer? Is this the same lazy useless Scvholari signing that Mr Hiddink has not even had on the bench in recent weeks? Thanks but no thanks mate. Might be willing to consider Drogba-the-diver or Anelka though. Oh and while we're at it, John Terry would probably enjoy Canal Street.

I am very interested in your contribution to this issue, enzocity and I will research it. If half of what you say is on the button then City could indeed secure Tevez. IF Hughes wants him. I would also add Gomez and Crouch to your list of "other strikers." Your observations and argument become more compelling the more they are thought about. Thankyou for this sharing of ideas.

Lol Lol! Banter...at least you do it without stupid & aggressive comments (like the other Mancs or the gooners!) Anyway, should be an interesting summer. Get ready to join the "BIG 4" - Arsenal will drop out! You'll have to get rid of Hughes tho...he just isn't good enough and no where near SAF, Wenger and Hiddink!

Bellamy is better than Tevez except he is exceptionally injury prone which has hindered him throughout his career. Tevez would not be incredibly different from what we already have as Bellamy/Bojinov/Evans are all in the similar mould of hard working strikers. Tevez would be a sensible buy as he has proven that he can cut it in the Premier League (much more than Evans and Bojinov) but we still need a proper CF like Anelka, Gomez, Janko etc.

Yes, eigthsin, Tevez has the workrate we need in a striker, but he isn't a goal machine, like Gomez or Eto'o. Anelka has shown he is capable of a reliable 16 goals a Prem season, but are Chelsea considering selling him? I think Tevez would be good for City. I think he will contribute much more than Bellamy can, who as you say has a record of playing only half a season. That's not necessarily a serious problem as long as there is enough depth in the squad. Bojinov has been the unluckiest City player EVER with injuries. I'd like to see Bellamy, Bojinov, Gomez, Crouch, Joao and Tevez fight it out for the two striker berths. I think in a successful season; using rotation this would mean they'd all get plenty of games, with Hughes always having options.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him parading a Sky Blue shirt on 1 June... Hell of a coup in my eyes, even if we do have a squad of midgets.
