As You Weren't, Tévez

As You Weren't, Tévez

Manchester City have this evening knocked back a €25 million bid from AC Milan for on strike Carlos Tevez...

City are in no rush to sell and as long as the player remains in self imposed Argentinian exile well away from The Blues tight knit squad, that'll do.

It transpires that Inter Milan this week offered a similar 'loan with promise to buy' deal to the one AC Milan had rejected last week. Inter then publically conceded defeat in helping Tévez move 1 mile closer to his family as the Boeing 777 flies.

Options are dwindling for Tévez and his entourage as they did in previous transfer windows unless somebody can come up with the straight cash amount City demand.

Only PSG other than City in Europe have that clout, but Tévez, who has never tried to learn English despite 6 years in the country he states he detests, sure as hell won't fancy integrating in French.

All together now, 'Fore!'

Surprised we'd even agree to meet with a shower like Milan ever again; their tactics throughout these "negotiations" have been a ridiculous attempt to browbeat us into accepting their ludicrous offer of a loan with no option to buy, amid claims that they have no money. Tell them the next time they decide to fly to Manchester, Thiago Silva had better be on the plane, I'd certainly take a straight swap, no questions asked.

you may all loathe the player, & not without some reason, but to hold onto someone for the purpose of ruining their career / life because they dissed a football club is very sad indeed. Concede your differences, find a fair deal for all and simply move on.

OK Capetown, how much do you feel a striker who has scored 52 goals in 84 appearances is worth in today's market? And why do you feel that we're doing this to ruin his career? He's the one who went AWOL to Argentina vowing never to return, we're still paying his wages FFS! Precisely how are WE ruining his career? Not like he needs any help, is it.

Sorry Capetown, Tevez deserves and warrants no concessions from City, none whatsoever. The only player ruining his career is himself; he signed the deal to go to Manc and then choose to start griping about first Mancini, then the city he'd played in for 3 years and then culminating in his disgraceful disregard of his manager at the pitchside.

I'm not condoning his behavior... & as for wages I'm sure City are only paying because if they stop then the legal weight will start to shift towards Tevez as an out. I'm not here to have a pop at you guys. Tevez is a top top player but seems to me there are too many ego's involved now for anyone's good. If I recall there was a time a short while back when there was a very good offer tabled from Corinthian's. That was the exit point imo. The negative energy around this situation only harms Tevez & Citeh... sometimes you just have to cut loose.

He's fell out with every club he's been at, including Corinthians. Owned by "his adviser" at one stage and City bought him out of that. He has been afforded preferential treatment despite his repeated terribly timed complaints through the hacks: Private jets to help him out with the family he left after getting caught offside, the highest salary, the honour of the armband. Allowed to bring his kids out with him on to the pitch, even when we were remembering Neil Young which the club regret and absolutely stank. He refused language courses and teh club did everything to try to help his estranged wife to settle. Worst of all he slagged our city and refused to help his teammates when they needed him.... He'll be gone this month, hopefully, but if that doesn't materialise and he has a legal pop, he will be ruined. HH Sheikh Mansour whom he has seriously upset has a legion of powerful lawyers. Above all else, to give him what he wants, as City could have done, would be terrible for English football. No player should be bigger than any club.
