As we reported last week, North London side Arsenal have been plotting a cut price offer for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez but it seems that today they have been given a huge boost in their pursuit of the Argentinean hitman.
According to football news sources today, Man City are now willing to sell Tevez to any interested club for just £10 millon but they are also set to demand that they have a clause written into the deal that would secure 20% of any sell on fee should the club plan to sell the striker.
The fact that Tevez has already notched up 53 goals during his time at Manchester City will be sure to increase the interest of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who is striving to add a new, natural goalscorer to his ranks.
At £10 million, Tevez is a complete bargain by any clubs standards and so the news that the striker will be forced out of he Etihad Stadium in January will spark huge interest from clubs across the world.
The news comes after Man City boss Roberto Mancini revealed that the striker had refused to appear for the club as a substitute during their UEFA Champions League group game against Bayern Munich but the striker denies saying that he would not play and that he was mis-quoted by the translator.
Whether the striker was mis-quoted is still to be decided but Mancini has made on decision already, Tevez will not play for Manchester City again, telling the media that he would not tolerate the behaviour shown by the player.
With a number of months looking likely to be spent with the reserve squad, Tevez looks increasingly likely to take any deal that comes his way, although last winter he declared that he wanted to move closer to his family back in South America, although admitted that he would re-locate his family in the right place.
The Argentinean striker told a chat show in Argentina that he thought that Manchester was a “small city” and said that he did not want to return to the club, “not even on holiday”.
Wenger is thought to be looking to speak to the Arsenal board in a bid to be able to negotiate a deal that he could offer to the striker in a bid to convince him to stay in the Premier League rather than to turn his attention away from England.
Italians Inter Milan and Juventus are also known to be interested in the forward and will also move for the striker in January.
