Carlos Tevez has made it quite clear that he no longer wants to play for Manchester City, although the striker has not exactly been in demand this summer and it looks as though last season’s Premier League Top Goalscorer will remain on the books at Eastlands.
Brazilian club Corinthians seemed to be making progress in their bid to sign Tevez earlier this summer, although the interest soon died down and rumours of the forward signing for Inter Milan have not borne any fruit.
Roberto Mancini has confirmed that no club wants to sign a player reported to be earning £200,000 per week and that Tevez will stay at City as a result.
“It is two weeks until the end of the market,” Mancini said. “I think it is difficult for him to leave. I don’t know if he will stay but at the moment, there isn’t a team who want to take him. I would be happy if he stays.”
Meanwhile, Mancini has claimed he knows little of the progress being made to sign Samir Nasri, saying: “I don’t know what the situation is. We start in the Premier League on Monday and we need to complete our team. We hope we can do that very quickly because we need more players.”
