PSG chairman Nasser al-Khelaifi admits wage demands of Man City's Tevez too rich

PSG chairman Nasser al-Khelaifi admits they tried to sign Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez this year.

But Tevez's wage demands were too rich - even for them!

Al-Khelaifi told Germany's Sportbild: "If the transfer was not sorted out, it was not because he didn't want to come, but because we didn't accept his wage demands.

"He wanted to come. We don't pay too big wages to our players. Last winter Carlos Tevez asked too much and didn't match the club's philosophy. So we refused."
