Tevez Sale Could Save City a Fortune

Carlos Tevez is currently in Turin completing a medical that once he passes and agrees to personal terms will make him a Juventus player. Manchester City, his former club, and the current Serie A champion have agreed a $12 million fee that the Guardian claims could be worth up to $42 million to City when the Argentine’s current salary and bonuses are included. Tevez earns $303,000 per week at the former English champion on a contract that still has 12 months to go.

The $12 million fee could rise to just under $16 million provided that Juve qualifies for the UEFA Champions League over the next three seasons. The Turin club will also pay a further $1.5 million if it wins either Italy’s Serie A or the Champions League during that time. The report also claims that City will save $26 million in wages and bonuses should Tevez agree to the move.

It’s remarkable that the Argentine remained at City for so long after handing in two transfer requests -- in December 2010 and July 2011 -- and then falling out spectacularly with former coach Roberto Mancini the following September when he refused to enter a UEFA Champions League group stage game against Bayern Munich.
