Carlos Tevez is mulling over his options at Manchester City.

The striker is entering the final year of his current City deal and has offers from AS Monaco and Juventus.

The Guardian says Tevez is thought to have an open mind regarding whether to remain at the club he joined four years ago from Manchester United and where he is among the highest paid players, with a reported salary of around £250,000 a week.

As there is only a year remaining on Tevez's contract, City's options are to listen to offers for him, decide to prolong the 29-year-old's deal to protect his value, or refuse to extend his contract.

This last option would seem the least likely as it would open up a scenario in which a player who cost the club at least £25m could walk away for free in 12 months time.
