Manchester City plan to extend Tevez's contract
Manchester City administration officer Brian Marwood hinted at having talks with Carlos Tevez to extend his stint with the club at the end of the season, citing the Argentine’s willingness to continue for the Premier League defending champions.
There were speculations that the 29 year old, who will finish his contract with the club at the end of this season, may be sold this summer. The move would negate the risk of the club not pocketing any substantial value for him later, in case he is held back.
However, Marwood thinks the chances of that happening are very slim. It is believed that Tevez is more than happy to continue for the reigning Premier League champions.
Mentioning that City manager Roberto Mancini hasn’t received any offer for the ace forward till now, he said, “Everyone knows Carlos only has a year left on his contract, but he has been fantastic for Manchester City – his scoring record, his tenacity, his energy. I think he is in a good place at the moment. Roberto Mancini has talked about extending Tevez’s contract, and these conversations will continue in the summer. We have had no offers and Carlos is happy at the club. Discussions will take place at the end of the season in terms of his future at City.”
Cheshire police revealed on Wednesday that Tevez had been accused of driving while disqualified and driving without insurance, which could land him in the prison for 6 months.
Arrested in Macclesfield last week, Tevez will be presented before the town’s magistrates court on April 3. Earlier also he was banned from driving following his failure to provide any information relating to the 2 incidents of his car’s excessive speeding, for which he was asked an explanation.
