Carlos Tevez's camp insist the Manchester City striker didn’t expect to be paid while going AWOL.

In recent days it has been confirmed by City sources that Tevez has lost nearly £10million in unpaid wages and bonuses, but his camp insists he agreed with this.

"They [the papers] are running a story based on a briefing given by Manchester City, that Carlos has lost £9.3milion in lost wages and bonuses which is a lot money," Kia Joorabchian's advisor Paul McCarthy told Sky Sports News.

"When Carlos went back to Argentina in November, he and the club came to agreement that he waived his wages - because he was not at Manchester, Carrington, so he waived his wages.

"And the situation is now that - quite frankly from Carlos' point of view - it is never about the money, it is not an economic situation with Carlos; if it had been he would have sat down with City about extending his contract which was on the table at one stage, but that is obviously not the case now and we wait and see what happens over the transfer window."
