Tevez Ponders City Extension

Carlos Tevez says he is thinking about signing a contract extension with Manchester City.

The Argentine forward claims to have been offered two more years at the Etihad, and that there is a good chance he will accept them.

This time last year, Tevez was trying to force his way out of City’s ranks.

Having walked out on the club, Tevez was AWOL in Argentina, and swore never to return. He had also been told by manager Roberto Mancini that he would never again wear a City shirt.

But Tevez ultimately returned to help City claim the Premier League title, and he is no longer desperate to leave the city he once said had “nothing” for him.

"I've one year left on my deal and City want me to sign for two more seasons. I'll think about it," Tevez said in the British media, according to Sky Sports.

"This year is different from last, when I wanted to end the contract with City. I'm happy here as they're treating me well.

"Sometimes I play, sometimes I don't, but that's OK."

And ironically, Argentina and golf have combined to make Tevez feel at home in England.

He says stalking the greens of Manchester with his compatriot Sergio Aguero is one of the factors which could see him stay at City for two more years.

"We are having a good time with him not only on the pitch but also outside as we play golf together," Tevez said.
