Tévez Prepares To Move One Mile Closer To Family
Carlos Tévez is moving closer to home in similar style to how Manchester united are allegedly closing the gap on Barçelona...
VMC's airport based operatives have had the tape measures out. And in advance of City's on strike striker signing for one of the Milanese giants, we can exclusively reveal that Milan is ONE mile closer to Buenos Aires than Manchester is as the Boeing 777 flies:
Manchester MAN to Buenos Aires EZE = 6935 miles
Milan MXP to Buenos Aires = 6934 miles
