Tevez Eyes Exit.....Again

Tevez Eyes Exit.....Again

With Gael Clichy 'in the bag' and Stefan Savic on the plane, the New Season purchases are at last under way.

So what better time for Tevez to once again rock the boat with what is now his perennial 'want away' diatribe.

There is no doubt that Carlos is an exceptional footballer, who gives 100% every time he steps on to the field, but for how long can City be held to ransom by this man. He is not bigger than our beloved football club and cannot be expected to be allowed to leave for a song as is being mooted in the press today.

It is very unlikely that he shares 'an excellent relationship' with Sheikh Mansour. I suspect that he has probably only met him once or twice. The PR machine, no doubt driven by a certain Mr Joorabchian is probably trying to get City to allow him to depart on the cheap to some non-descript Club in Buenos Aires so that in twelve months he can be missing the delights of European Football and they can sell him at a huge profit. Get real Carlos. You are currently our prize treasure. Manchester City has invested heavily in you. For the first time you have been owned by a football club and not pushed around by sundry others. If you had taken the trouble to learn our language as has Pablo Zabaleta, life here would be perfect for you. The weather is not much different to the southern parts of Argentina, your kids could learn English easily at their ages.

If once again you are insistent that you want to leave then you can expect to do so at the price that is realistic in terms of your footballing ability..amongst the best in the world.

As the rest of the squad head for Carrington today I sincerely hope that Mancini starts to develop the tactics that revolve around Balotelli and Dzeko. Tevez has a couple of weeks to remain holed-up in Argentina before he gets his hanky out, so let City use the pre-season to work with the other two exceptional forwards that we have. Both Tevez and Messi were ineffective in the opening Copa match against Bolivia and it needed Aguero to come on and rescue a point. Maybe the same man can come along and replace Tevez. A quality footballer who knows where the net is.

The pre-season is under way. The new players are on their way. Get me Aguero, get me Mata and if Tevez continues his tantrums, then he will have paid most of the cost of both of them.

Cheers for the goals, but I'm sick of the whole saga, so good riddance. At least now we can have a proper captain in Vinnie K.

The board should just sell him to any place with three or more restaurants. He's dragged our fine club and local cuisine through the mud enough.

Almost as if Mancini's Inter Milan revelation in Italy triggered this reaction. Anyway, We've had more than our moneysworth and goalsworth. Honour the contract or find someone prepared to pay more than Liverpool paid for Andy Carroll. Fail to find one and kick up? Reserves. If he stays he must not continue as captain....and lest we forget, the reason his kids are in Argentina is because he got caught offside by his wife.

Corinthians (2005-2006) Tevez forces his way out of the club, going on strike, after arguments - some physical - with teammates, the head coach and the club president. Claims he loves the club and supporters, and always will. Time at club: One season. West Ham (2006-2007) Tevez almost immediately falls out with the manager and players. Storms off and threatens to go on strike after being substituted. Goes AWOL to Argentina at one point. Claims he loves the club and supporters, and always will. Time at club: One season. Manchester United (2007-2009) Tevez complains of being fatigued and overplayed in his first season. In his second, he complains of being underplayed - drama queening it every time he's taken off - managing just five goals, despite playing more minutes than the league's third top scorer Fernando Torres. Parting shot of "I'll scream in Ferguson's face when I score against them". Claims he loves the club and supporters, and always will. Time at club: Two seasons. Manchester City (2009-????) Tevez is tired, homesick, wants to retire, takes time off to see his daughter and is caught on camera spending that time allegedly banging his mistress (the actually banging remains unphotographed), feels there's too much greed in football despite being the highest-paid player in Britain, hates football in general yet throws a wobbly every time he's taken off, wants his old life back, hates the club executives, claims that he would like to punch his young teammates and finally hands in a transfer request. Claims he loves the club and supporters, and always will.

We need to sell him in order to replace him, FFP dictates this. Leaving him in the reserves is not an option we can afford now Mr Blatter has gone all prudent on our asses. Unless one of 5-6 clubs in the world that can afford him decide they need him and stump up quickly then I see this being a huge problem that will drag on and on. Thanks Carlos.

sick of this now get the 30-40 million for him which his talent no doubt deserves but i cant see any team in Argentina getting any where near the funds needed to buy him, so is Spain,Italy, nearer to Buenos Aires than Manchester? i dont think so.... so good bye and GOOD RIDDENCE....

I think all the fans have had enough of Mr Tevez....he scores goals and works hard but his behaviour is not becoming of a top top player. I for one wont be sad to see him go and hope Kompany gets the captains arm band.

Vital Spuds have set the Question 'Would you swap bale for Tevez? i wouldnt but Spuds can have Tevez for 40 -45 million and Keep Bale.... Bale is Overrated and 1 trick pony, rat boys Brother had him in his pocket at EVERTON, Dont need nor want him at City and that includes Tevez too.....

cityman - Considering few clubs would be able to afford Tevez a player transfer (although rare in the real world) might work here. For instance if Tevez needs to go to a big city or Spanish speaking country offer a swap for Aguero, if he's really not in it for the money that would suit everyone
