Manchester City and Carlos Tevez set to negotiate over extension contract
Carlos Tevez has decided to extend his tumultuous career at Manchester City. Insiders at the club have revealed that the Argentine is set to have talks with Manchester City for a new deal. Manchester City’s administration officer Brian Marwood has confirmed these reports as well.
Carlos Tevez, who scored a hat-trick against Barnsley in his most recent appearance for Manchester City, was rumored to be on the verge of an exit. The 29-year-old Argentina international will be out of contract next summer, which is why the Manchester City board was expected to sell him off rather than risk losing him for free.
Brian Marwood reckons Carlos Tevez’s departure rumors cannot be true since the Argentine forward is enjoying his life at the Eastlands. Carlos Tevez hasn’t been a regular player in the first-team this season, yet he has appeared 35 games and scored 15 goals for Manchester City.
“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,” Brian Marwood told the Daily Star. “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.”
Carlos Tevez got arrested in Macclesfield on Wednesday by the Cheshire police for driving while disqualified and driving without insurance could see go to prison for up to six months. The former Manchester United forward will appear in front at the town’s magistrates court on April 3.
Carlos Tevez got himself banned from driving for six months in January after pleading guilty to two instances where his car was found to be over-speeding.
