Take it or leave it! Inter offer City €25m for Tevez

Internazionale have offered Manchester City €25m for exiled Argentinian striker Carlos Tevez.

INTERNAZIONALE HAVE TABLED a £21m (€25m) bid to end Carlos Tevez’s Manchester City nightmare, club president Massimo Moratti said.

Claudio Ranieri’s side emerged as the leading contenders to sign the wantaway Argentinian after reports in Italy suggested that they were ready to launch a bidding war to beat neighbours Milan to Tevez’s signature.

Milan have since indicated that they are no longer interested in the 27-year-old but, speaking following Inter’s 1-0 win in last night’s Milan derby, Moratti confirmed that his club have made an official offer.

“Our offer is €25m,” Moratti said (see The Guardian). “Now it depends on them whether they accept or not.”

I believe there are still other teams involved for the striker. There are clubs in England as well as PSG. In football there are no secrets.

Tevez’s valuation is certain to be the biggest sticking point in any negotiation about the striker’s exit from Eastlands. Although the fee was not disclosed at the time, Tevez was reported to have cost City £47m — a British transfer record — when he signed from Manchester United in the summer of 2009, and Roberto Mancini expects that City should be able to recoup about £30m in resale value.

QPR are among the Premier League clubs to find themselves linked with a move for Tevez in recent days, though new manager Mark Hughes insists that such a big-money move would be impossible during this transfer window.

“Not in this window, absolutely not,” Hughes said when asked by Sky Sports News about a potential move for Tevez.

Ideally I would love the chance to work with Carlos again but it is not going to happen any time soon.
