Tevez seeks City exit

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has admitted he wants to leave the club in the off-season.Tevez, who is the Premier League’s joint top-scorer this season with 20 goals, told Argentinean radio station Radio del Plata that the time had come for him to move to another club.

“I want to leave Manchester City,” Tevez said.

“Football has changed a lot for me and I don’t know if I will even make it to the next World Cup.”

“And that has nothing to do with whether I’m selected or not. I’ve been treated very well here and I’m grateful. I also gave my everything for the club to receive the results it has had.”

“But I need a change of scene.”

There are likely to be many suitors for Tevez’s services, with Inter Milan and Real Madrid already being linked to the 27-year-old.

Former club Boca Juniors is also expected to make a bid.

But Tevez said while he would like to return to Boca at some stage during his career, they may not be able to afford him at the moment.

“To go back to Boca Juniors would be beautiful but it is very difficult,” Tevez said.

“I spoke to their midfielder Roman Riquelme and, messing around, we agreed I would go back one day. But if we’re speaking seriously, financial issues would make my return difficult.”
