Man City tell Inter Milan, Chelsea to cough up £50M for Tevez

Manchester City have slapped a £50 million price-tag on skipper Carlos Tevez.

Manchester City have slapped a £50 million price-tag on skipper Carlos Tevez.

The Guardian says City are increasingly convinced Tevez will ask to leave and, if their fears are confirmed, the FA Cup finalists are adamant it will happen only on their terms, and that means extracting the best potential value for a 27-year-old who has scored 51 times in 82 games for the club and still has three years remaining on his contract.

City's top-level management are reluctantly planning for a future without the Argentinian on condition he joins Torres, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kaká as the only footballers to command transfer fees of £50m or more.

Inter Milan could conceivably have the funds, especially if they sell Wesley Sneijder. Real Madrid are another candidate, while Chelsea are monitoring Tevez's potential availability through the network of agents associated with the club and player.
