Tevez To Leave City For France?

Paris Saint Germain and the now ubiquitous Monaco are just two of the teams apparently sniffing around Carlos Tevez, after it emerged that the Argentine’s time at Manchester City could soon be coming to an end.

The 29-year-old striker’s contract with City expires at the end of next season, and the club is yet to decide whether or not to offer him a new one.

If a new deal is not forthcoming, it would be in City’s best financial interest to flog Tevez to the highest bidder, and put the money towards one of their other reported targets, like Napoli’s Edinson Cavani.

Equally, even if Tevez is offered a new deal by City he could choose not to accept, meaning he could take his pick of clubs to move to for free at the end of next season.

According to the Guardian, Premier League clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are all also paying close attention to what happens with Tevez.

But the player’s own comments seem to suggest that if he were to leave City, it would be to move to one of French football’s ambitious big spenders.

"There was interest from PSG for me, and we talked with Leonardo [the director of football], but we could not reach an agreement," Tevez said last week.

"But it remains an interesting option as the French championship is moving very fast. If Leonardo called me, it's not a problem for me to come, really no problem to come to Paris and France.

"For me, Monaco is one of the largest French clubs, and any player would go there. I have a one-year contract left at City and I am happy, and I love playing in the Premier League – but a project like Monaco I really like. I know [Claudio] Ranieri [head coach] and he has proven he is a great coach so for me this would be great."
