Sir Alex is apparently about to be the victim of a player snatch attempt as Manchester City look to spend spend spend!
City go for £30m Tevez
MANCHESTER CITY are set to make a sensational attempt to snatch striker Carlos Tevez away from Manchester United.
Cash-rich City believe they can smash the relationship between Tevez and Sir Alex Ferguson — and capitalise on their neighbours’ failure to offer the Argentine striker a permanent contract before the end of the season.
As well as having the financial backing of their new owners the Abu Dhabi United Group, City can now call upon the services of Tevez’s agent, Kia Joorabchian.
Uncertainty over Tevez’s future at Old Trafford has resurfaced since Ferguson’s statement last week that they will not be offering him a permanent deal until next summer. (News of the World)
Tevez is a quality player who had a very good season last term but has not been firing on all cylinders so far this term and was left out of the line-up for yesterday’s crunch match with Chelsea. Obviously the former West Ham man has some interesting contract issues as it appears that he is in many ways a slave to his agent (and more so than Ronaldo ever has been!) and therefore until he is finally bought outright by a club his future will always be a little uncertain. I am sure that Sir Alex will make sure this doesn’t come to fruition but it does seem that the Blue half of Manchester is indeed getting bigger and bigger every day! Do Man United fans think that Tevez would consider a move to their neighbours?
