TÚvez Looks Boxed In Amid City Positivity

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide? Pragmatic Roberto Mancini stands for no messing and is adopting a shoulder struggling stance over the dreary saga that is TÚvezgate...

Fair play to the City gaffer and The Blues hierarchy, they've pressed ahead with careful squad strengthening this summer whilst distancing the club from the public statements and hack nudging of TÚvez and his representative.

With the exciting Sergio Aguero now on board for The Citizens realistic title challenge and first ever Champions League campaign to almost unanimous acclaim across English football, Mancio has gone very take it or leave it over the Manchester dissing man who should never wear our captains arm band again:

'Tevez is our player and I am happy with him - he will return on 4th August. It depends on how he arrives, if he's in good form. He has a programme of training. He can play in this team, he can play in the Champions League...There's a chance he might go, but then there's a chance he might stay here with us...and, if so, we are happy.'

There's been much debate across Planet Blue as to whether or not City might attempt a TÚvez swap deal with Inter Milan for the hatstand Samuel Eto'o who engaged in a dalliance with City a couple of years ago. Mancio says nope:

'Eto'o is a fantastic player, but he plays for Inter Milan. It's not true.'

The close to optionless situation is assuming nightmarish proportions for TÚvez and his agent who have tripped over themselves to burn bridges with Man City and there is going to be some serious omellete on their faces if Mancio benches what looked to be a rotund TÚvez snapped on holiday recently for the Community Shield clash with the rags.

One thing's for sure, the under contract TÚvez is no longer top dog at the Etihad Stadium and if he doesn't realise that now, he will for sure come the first league game of the season when Swansea come to town.

The pursuit of a creative midfielder continues meanwhile and a fourth signing of the season is expected next week as transfer stalemates begin to give.


31 July 16:15: Inter Milan, Dublin, F
07 August 14:30: The rags, Wembley, CS
15 August 20:00 Swansea, Etihad Stadium, PL

I want to see him squirm, before the realisation that nobody wants him gradually sinks in - and then flog him to Corinthians in January.

If I was Mancini i'd swap him and a few mil for Eto'o and Sneijder. Eto'o is one of very few strikers who can perform both domestically and on the European stage whilst Sneijder will provide you with that AM you want. Can't help but pity Tevez.

Then again, if I had ridiculous amounts of money and owned a club and one of the players within that club got high and mighty I wouldn't think twice about letting him rot on the bench and fining one or two weeks wages for everytime he didn't turn up to training.

Thefamousno7 i don't think inter milan would be stupid enough to give man city money, eto and sneijder. They would be stupid to even do tevez for sneijder...Every club should steer clear of carlos, he is a great player but look at his past record, he doesn't exactly stay at clubs for long. If he doesn't go to corinthians then isn't he contradicting himself anyway, man city have aguero now they don't need him and im backing dzeko to come through this season aswell.

Inter wouldn't let their two best players go in return for a mentally challenged Tevez I don't think. The club doesn't seem to want a swap deal only cash, they will want the money they paid for Aguero back.
