Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has withdrawn his transfer request after talks with the club.
The 26-year-old Argentine, who joined City in July 2009, said earlier this month that he wanted to leave after falling out with club officials.
But City said in a statement on Monday that Tevez has expressed his commitment to the club and will stay at Eastlands.
“Carlos and the club are keen to focus on the opportunities ahead and his contract remains unchanged,” it said.
Manager Roberto Mancini added: “Carlos is a world-class player whose contribution since he joined the club has been invaluable.
“I am pleased that we are now able to focus on pure football matters and to be able to look forward to Carlos continuing to play a significant role in the club’s progress.” (BBC Sport)
What is going on? Did Carlos and Wayne meet up in the summer and decide the best way they could increase their already sizeable wage demands was to force the club’s hands with a threatened walk out? Well if they did then it worked.
Some sources, Rodney Marsh no less, have stated that Carlos Tevez is currently paid £286k a week after tax, which is astounding. So therefore can he really have been after yet more money? If not, what exactly was he playing at when he stated he was absolutely going to leave the club? He claimed he had fallen out with the club’s directors so maybe they have made their peace with the 26 year old striker?
Any Man City fans care to hazard a guess as to what has happened? Was this the Argentine’s way of telling Roberto Mancini to stop subbing him late on?
