Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez could be the subject of more legal action.

The Daily Star says he could be sued for up to £12m by fed-up Manchester City.

Tevez's dispute with the Premier League leaders has already cost him almost £10m in fines, wages and lost bonuses.

Now the Blues could hit him with a massive damages claim for the loss of his transfer value.

The striker's market price has plummeted since he went AWOL back to Argentina and refused to train. Corinthians offered £38m last summer but the deal folded.

Now City are struggling to sell Tevez for just £26m, with Inter, AC Milan and Paris St Germain all failing to find the cash.

City insist the drop in the 27-year-old's value is his fault - he has not been training since November and is in breach of his contract.
