Agent of Tevez says Man City stay hinges on family

Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez will remain at the club if his family moves over to England to join him. The Argentine striker has grown increasingly homesick in the past couple of years, so much so that he has threatened to quit City and move back to his homeland or perhaps to Spain.

But his representative, Kia Joorabchian, says that Tevez may yet stay at Eastlands if wife Vanesa and their two daughters join him in Manchester.

"It's difficult to talk about offers. Carlos is a big player who will attract big clubs," he told Sky Sports News.

"(But) he personally has had a very good season at City. He's happy with the current situation at City.

"He's sorted out his problems with the directors at City, that was sorted back in December.

"I think it all boils down to his family. If they feel comfortable about moving to Manchester then there's every chance he will stay at Manchester.

"He was one of first to join this project. He had ambitions to get City to the Champions League and win to win a trophy.

"He has helped them do that."
