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.
