The problem with wanting to leave a top European outfit paying you a reported £200,000 per week is that very few clubs can afford this type of salary and that has been the problem for Carlos Tevez during the summer.

After preliminary talks with Brazilian club Corinthians broke down, Tevez found himself short of suitors to take him away from Eastlands and the transfer deadline has now passed, meaning that the striker remains at Manchester City until at least January.

However, it appears that the player is not only ready to do his best for City over the coming weeks and months, but will potentially be looking to stay for several seasons according to agent Kia Joorabchian.

The driving factor behind Tevez wanting to leave was reported to be a desire to be closer to his family, although the forward’s agent has revealed that Tevez’s wife is attempting to settle in England which could mean that the player has a future at Eastlands.

Joorabchian told talkSPORT: “There were a couple of offers in for him but obviously he is an important player for City and they won’t let him go for any (old) price.

“We couldn’t quite match what City wanted.

“But at the end of the day – as Carlos said at the end of the season – professionally, he is happy at the club”.
