Carlos Tevez talks up new contract

Manchester City striker Carlos TevezCarlos Tevez has hinted that he could stay at Manchester City beyond the end of his current deal, which is set to run out next summer.

However, the 29-year-old striker, the club’s top scorer this season, is yet to start formal talks with City officials over a new deal.

Tevez says he will honour the last year of his contract and that he is considering a longer stay in Manchester, only 18 months after going AWOL during City’s title-winning campaign, because his circumstances have changed.

“I have a year left and I will respect that,” Tevez told reporters. “I’ll think about whether to sign a new one.

“It’s not the same as last season when I wanted to leave as soon as possible.

“I’m going through a different time. The club is treating me really well and that’s so important for me.”

Tevez must complete 250 hours of community service before leaving the country after pleading guilty to charges of driving while disqualified and without insurance earlier this month.
