Carlos Tevez Unhappy at Manchester City

Carlos Tevez - Manchester City

City had just announced Gaël Clichy as their first summer signing.

Manchester City have coddled Carlos Tevez trying to keep him on their squad.

Manager Mancini even allowed Tevez four days off last season so he could fly to Buenos Aires to spend time with his family. The club later discovered he went on holiday to Tenerife instead.

Tevez is the only man to make the Professional Footballers' Association player-of-the-year shortlist for the past two seasons.

He has has scored or set up 42% of his team's league goals in the last two campaigns.

Tevez is currently playing in the Copa América.

Tevez will not be sold unless someone offers the right amount. He is under contract to 2011. It remains to be seen what club can afford the £40 million figure and £200,000 a week in wages in order to sign Tevez – perhaps Real Madrid.

If he leaves, it may be a fatal blow to the club's chances of competing for the league title. Tevez's longest spell without a goal for the club over two years is eight games. In total, he has accumulated 53 goals in 86 appearances.

Tevez is captain of Man City, who have just won their first trophy for 35 years. He had to be badgered to attend the trophy parade. Tevez did cancel the flight he had booked to Argentina to join in City's celebrations - but it was not until a few hours before the event - after City had let it be known he would be fined - that the club found out he would participate.

A delegation of three City players approached Mancini in the spring and let him know they did not want Tevez to captain the side if he returned next season.

Tevez described Manchester as "small and rainy" with "only two restaurants".
