Tevez Request Rejected

Manchester City have rejected Carlos Tevez's written transfer request. Club statement follows...

"It is with disappointment that we confirm to our supporters that Carlos Tevez has submitted a written transfer request. The Club can also confirm that the request has been rejected.
The Club remains disappointed by this situation and particularly with the actions of Carlos' representative.

Roberto Mancini and all at the Club have shown, and will continue to show, sensitivity to Carlos' personal circumstances including the issue of his family being based overseas. Indeed following his suspension as a result of the game against Bolton, Carlos requested, and was given, special dispensation by the Manager to take leave overseas.

The written transfer request is in stark contrast to Carlos' stated position in both public and club contexts. Significantly, over recent months, the Club has also received numerous requests from Carlos` representative to renegotiate and improve his playing contract as well as more recently a request to extend that contract by another year.

However, in line with the Club's policy of not negotiating playing contracts mid-season this has not been granted. Carlos' current five-year contract has three-and-a-half years to run and he is the highest paid player at the Manchester City Football Club.

This is both an unfortunate and unwelcome distraction and the Club will remain focused on the games ahead in what is turning out to be a very promising season. The door remains open for Carlos to be selected to play."

Smells a bit like 'anything Rooney can do i can do it better'
Carlos is earning enough and therefore I can't see his request being money orintated. It must be family reasons.
Welcome to Manchester!!!
Seismologists recorded an earthquake in the UK this morning, based on the Greater London area - caused by all the rags crawling out from under their rocks to have a pop at City. I guess if Carlos hadn't shagged that prostitute while his wife was pregnant, and hadn't questioned the ambitions of our club before accepting almost double his wages we'd be able to forgive him. Or am I thinking of someone else? One thing for certain - you won't see a bunch of balaclavaed cretins shouting death threats outside Tevez's Cheshire mansion - we're not that classy!
the club will make him stay till May and ensure city get champions league football then he can go and allow for someone new to come in for the start of next season. great player but it's the beginning of the end now and he will be purged in some way like Robinho and Bellamy were
Firm but fair stance from the club. Its official that tevez is the highest paid player at the club, his contract must have a clause that makes his wages go up when another player earns more. This requested is not motivated by cash, the man celebrates goals for his kids and constantly talks about missing them. Carlos personal life is his own doing, it isnt citys fault he cheated on his wife and shes left him. As captain he should have made a public appology to mancini for his childish behaviour at being subbed. City have bent over backwards for him recently and he got mad at utd because they werent treating him correctly. Theres no pleasing the man! Tevez should be sold in may and not now. If this news was under francis lee, thaskin shina*****ra or bernsteins regime at city, then this news would kill me. But if tevez goes, city can get another top striker or two. I still hope he stays though.

The sheikh should send trisha over to argentina to get tevezs misses back!

Your loss Carlos.
Unfortunately bluedub I think its your loss rather than his.
No one is bigger than the club TF7. We have the means to replace him, which we will. We showed yesterday that we don't need him. I won't be shedding any tears.
I hope he creates as much conflict as possible in this situation, give you a taste of your own manipulating medicine
We've plenty of experience in that Rob, we suffered at the hands of manipulating clubs, players and agents in the past, we are fully aware of what that medicine tastes like.
By rejecting the request and publically shaming his agent (and by association him) we have shown we are not falling into the same trap as United, who allowed Rooney to end the long-time mantra that "no player is bigger than United" after he was rewarded for the poorest form of his career by a double-your-wage contract. If Tevez stays, it is good for us, even though in the estimation of many he will have gone down as a person. But if he leaves, we will march onward and upward, we will sign two top forwards instead of the one (that being the expected January signing to replace Adebayor/Santa Cruz). CTID.
At least we're not desparate enough to HAVE to double his wages in order to get him to stay - unlike the rags and Rooney. Manure knew they were finished if Rooney went, we will simply go out and replace Tevez without skipping a beat. I still think this situation will resolve itself if we can get Joorabchian exposed as the filthy manipulator he is. If not, then we move on.
Hey, Rob, what price City giving Everton a proper drubbing next week?
Johnny Baguette
Talk about a Winter Break for the Prem the outcome may be Carlito to be the first player with a Winter Break Clause in his contract. Pack the Snood away...Jeez
taggarts nose
If he wants to leave let him leave, cant keep a player against his own will for too long. It looks like several of your players need a good kick in, the likes of ballotelli and this ugly sod after their actionsn when there subbed. Nothing but little girls.
filth- you really make me laugh. First of all Rooney was never leaving. Tell me where you think he would've gone to in England? Would he be going abroad? No, he would flop over there and his wife wouldn't have gone with him. He just needed a day to come to his senses. Secondly, he did get an improved contract because he had his best year in Utd shirt last season. So this nonsense about doubling wages is really stupid. I'm sure you were there negotiating with him or you read more drivel from RELIABLE newspaper sources?
And who will you replace Tevez? Is there any player out there better than him who would be willing to step DOWN in their career?? Please give me some names and I promise not to laugh!
FU, you'll have to trust me on this. Your favourite scouser's agent is a more than good friend of our Mr. Marwood. He contacted our main man and was told City could meet any wage demanded. The rest and the death threats are history. So give up getting starry eyed about the player who slagged England fans off in South Africa on world television. It's a filthy business and Rooney is up to his neck in it with the rest of them.
Johnny Baguette
JB - Hhahahaha so you THINK in the SLIGHTEST that he would've joined ***ty!?? More chance of him joining the LIVERPOOL!
They will replace tevez with another mercenary who couldnt give two *****s about the club and just the money. Tevez gives everything to city, simply irreplaceable.
Hi FU, Jesus they're all comng out of the woodwork now. That comment about Rooney needing a day to come to his senses is one of the most special I've ever seen on Vital. Are you seriously that gullible? Rooney bent your club over a barrel, and instead of sticking to your guns and not letting a player dictate terms at your club, you bent over and took it up the arse of him and his agent. We have the means to replace Tevez, a situation Utd don't find themselves in anymore. Any takers on Aguero?
P, in your opinion is Tevez a mercenary?
I heard you offered Tevez another 100k on top of his current 150k, so what was it you were saying about not throwing money at him in an attempt to keep him?
TF7 - read the club statement. They specifically point out that the club does not discuss contracts during the course of the season, so when was this alleged 150grand extra offered?
It was from a RELIABLE newspaper source Dub. LOL!
fifthcolumnblue,000-a-week%20will%20cure%20Tevez%20homesickness&team=Manchester%20City And dont give me any of this unreliable souce bollox when you constantly use unproven sources fcb.
Bludedub, i havn't said tevez is a mercenary no, i think most your other players are but from what i can see tevez does everything for city when he plays so he works hard for his money but i cant say that about some of your others. I think he is irreplaceable for city!
The Star? pmsl
Bluedub- Who will you replace Tevez with? Is there any striker better than him that would be willing to take a step down in their career?? Dzeko isnt even better than Pavyluchenko! Btw we just bid 32 mil for Benzema last summer but his mind was already set on Real no thanks to Zidane! Just because we aren't spending 100 mil every year doesnt mean we don't have the means. Clubs cant be sustainable with constant spending. And who needs constant spending anyway, its not like we're lacking trophies are we?
