He was involved in one of the most high profile and bizarre sagas of last term, yet it now appears Carlos Tevez is happy at Manchester City and has no plans to leave. Even though he allegedly refused to play for the club and spent months in exile, the Argentina striker now claims that he is happy to remain in England for now.
After spending an incredible five months in his home country and seemingly ending his career at Manchester City, Tevez made a shock comeback for the club towards the back end of the campaign and was pivotal in their Premier League title victory. However, even though he did manage to return for the final few games, there were always doubts that the former Manchester United man would not come back for another season after making no secret of the fact that he was home sick.
It now appears as though Tevez has eased those concerns, stating that while he does want to finish his career in Argentina, he is happy to remain in England for the time being. Speaking to FoxSports, Tevez said, “My biggest wish is to finish my career in the Boca shirt. I am still thinking the same as when I left – I want to retire here. I am here for whatever Boca need. But the truth is that I finished the season very happy in England. I am feeling good, I have no desire to be thinking that I want to leave, my family are happy.”
Of course, there is still a chance that Roberto Mancini does not want to risk an episode of last year and will look to sell the Argentinian this summer. However, considering his massive impact following his return from exile, City are likely to try and do everything they can to keep Tevez as they look to defend their Premier League title.
