Man City may seek £12M from Tevez over transfer fee collapse

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.

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.
