An Ideal Resolution To The Tevez Problem

An Ideal Resolution To The Tevez Problem

Vital Manchester City stalwart, fifthcolumnblue sent us the following.

The speculation in the press is that we are chasing Sergio Aguerro as a replacement for Tevez. Now despite the dodgy offer from Corinthians which in my opinion is never going to happen, Tevez has said all along that a move to Spain would suit him, as it is 'culturally similar' to Argentina, and his family would be willing to move there.

The general feeling was that Real Madrid would be his likeliest destination, given the fact they have the financial clout to not only pay the transfer fee we are seeking but also pay for Tevez's substantial wages.

We are allegedly holding out for £50m for Tevez, whilst it has been widely reported that Atletico will not accept less than £45m for Aguerro. Noises from the Aguerro camp would seem to indicate the player would more than happily come to Manchester, so all that remains is the negotiation of a suitable fee with Los Rojiblancos.

Now I don't think I'm alone in feeling rather fed up with the whole Tevez and Kia circus and would love to get rid of the guy ASAP, preferably without compromising too much on the fee we receive. So putting 2+2 together, why not offer Atletico a straight swap for Tevez? If he is genuinely only seeking a move for the good of his family (yeah right!) and it's not all about money, then why would Tevez refuse a move to Madrid?

Los Colchoneros might not have the same appeal as Real Madrid, but that's not the point according to Carlos, and I suspect a lot of Citizens would have a quiet chuckle at the thought of a slightly miffed Tevez having to settle for a move to Madrid`s second team when he had his sights set on somewhere slightly more glamorous! We'd be getting rid of a major pain in the backside, whilst Tevez will be leaving the town with only two restaurants, and Atletico would be getting a great player at the top of his game. Makes perfect sense to me!

I agree this would be ideal, however how much would Kia Joorabachin stand to make with this deal? This is the real issue, if Kia is not making enough money from any proposed deal then it will never happen.

I suggested this last week. I think a straight swap for Aguero sounds ideal. However, I think the stumbling block there might be that a club like Athletico need the hard cash and may not be interested in a swap for Tevez. Bluedub, It appears that City have made it clear that they will not enter into any negotiations where Kia stands to benefit. (I would imagine Cook is behind this.) I don't like Kia, not many do, but I think some of the conspiracy theories that are going about are a bit beyond cynical and border on the bonkers. I wouldn't trust him as far as I can throw him, but the suggestion for instance that Kia is getting Corinthians to buy Tevez so he can immediately sell him on to Chelsea is a bit much. I'm one of the few naive fools that actually believe that Tevez really does want to go somewhere where his wife will live with him so he himself can watch his kids grow up. As a dad myself I don't see that as so terribly unlikely as others do.

Spike - I agree that the suggestions he may be moved on to Chelsea are a tad far fetched but I do believe there's something amiss with this Corinthians bid, do you really believe Kia will make nothing from any move where Tevez is concerned? As for his family, I really do hope you're right, if he does settle with his family and this move is not money motivated I will genuinely admire him for it and wish him all the best.

He settled for Manchester's second team, and only won a micky mouse cup, so he would have no problems playing for Atletico. Was SAF wrong not to sign him, hmmm... What goes around comes around.

He settled for Manchester's only team you trafford-supporting Norwegian glory-hunter. Funny how the FA Cup is only ever described as "Mickey-Mouse" when the rags haven't won it. How'd your treble go last season BTW?

Germany? LOL. I have the misfortune of living in Chorlton/Old Trafford mate, within smelling distance of old toilet - somewhere you might visit one day if you carry on saving your pennies - that is if you haven't spent all your cash on life-size posters of Wazza and Gazza upon which to carry out your hourly onanistic rituals. P.S. Recognise the names in this quote? "That is without question part of our future planning is to have Carlos Tevez at the club on a long-term situation and I think David Gill is progressing that as best he can," declared Ferguson. "But there is no question we all want him to stay - including the club, the directors and David Gill - and hopefully we can come to that solution." I think the quote answers your question as to who is the moron.
