Argentine striker suggests a shock U-turn.
Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has shocked everybody associated with the club in hinting that he may be prepared to stay, the Daily Mirror reports.
The 29-year-old’s current deal expires in less than 18 months and it has been well documented that he wants to return to his boyhood club, Boca Juniors.
Tevez’s days in Manchester looked to be numbered last season after a high profile fall out with manager Roberto Mancini, but he managed to rework his way back into the squad after proposed moves to AC Milan and Corinthians, another of his former clubs, fell through.
“I have a year left and I will respect that. I’ll think about whether to sign a new one,” he said.
“It’s not the same as last season when I wanted to leave as soon as possible. I’m going through a different time. The club is treating me really well and that’s so important for me.”
Tevez picked up a League winners medal last season and he’ll be hoping to add a second FA Cup victory to his list of honours next month.
The Argentine international has made 39 appearances for City this term, scoring 17 goals and his form has reflected his claims of happiness despite City’s limp defence of their title.
