Re: Tevez Statement - MCFC
Wow, I didn't even know he'd handed in a transfer request.
I'd be surprised if it was all about money, though. Tevez seems a bit eccentric to me; he probably is genuinely homesick. Plus he must be on close to 250k/week - he isn't going to get that anywhere else.
His problem, if he is homesick, is that none of the Argie clubs would be able to afford the kind of transfer fee Man City will demand, given he has over three years left on his contract. So even if he was prepared to take a huge drop in wages, the club won't let him go - which I suppose this website statement confirms.
Seems a bit of a bizarre request to hand-in, to be honest. The best realistic outcome Tevez could hope for would be a move to another European country, probably on less wages. Is Spain or Italy really that much closer to Argentina to cause so much upheaval?
Remember: there are real people with hopes, dreams, fears and insecurities behind these avatars. Try to exploit that as much as possible.
