Manchester City to Seal £25m Carlos Tevez Deal on Monday

Carlos is on his way to Old Trafford to Eastlands!


The Rumour

Manchester City are confident of unveiling Carlos Tevez by Monday in a deal taking Mark Hughes’ spending to £200million since he became boss.

City’s talks with Tevez and his advisers have led to a £25m deal being agreed to take the former United striker across Manchester.

Argentina international Tevez is poised to agree personal terms with City on a four-year deal that will earn the 25-year-old striker £120,000 a week.

The Analysis

Carlos Tevez was keen to avoid angering Man United fans by telling them he wouldn’t dream of signing for arch rivals Liverpool but then appears to have gotten confused and signed for fierce rivals Man City, he does know that the two teams share a city?

Anyway Mark Hughes will be glad to have convinced a relatively big name to join him at Eastlands after failing to secure the likes of Ribery and Kaka. Carlito is a good player on his day and could well be a top notch signing but one wonders how exactly Hughes is going to fit all these strikers in one line-up?

For instance even if you ignore Craig Bellamy, Jo, Darius Vassell, Valeri Bojinov and Ched Evans, Benjani, Felipe Caicedo, how the hell will the club fit Roque Santa Cruz, Robinho and Carlos Tevez in the same team?

The Likelihood

Tevez to Man City: I think the fans can safely start getting his name on their new kits!
