Carlos Tevez shapes to move from Manchester United to Manchester CityEdit
p>Carlos Tevez is seriously considering leaving Manchester United for
Manchester City because he feels so disillusioned about the way his current club has treated him.
The forward is contemplating severing his ties with Old Trafford and joining their closest rivals even though the Premier League champions have made it clear they want to keep him.
Tevez will announce his plans after he has been released from international duty – Argentina play a World Cup qualifier in Ecuador on Wednesday – and it has become a straight choice between the Manchester rivals, with the player leaning towards City while remaining acutely aware of the potential ramifications of leaving United.
Reports last night that he had already committed himself to Mark Hughes's side were premature but Tevez is encouraged by the scale of the club's ambition and the measures to which City have gone to make him feel wanted, compared with how United have handled the issue.
David Gill, United's chief executive, met Kia Joorabchian, the player's adviser, last week to put forward a package that would mean the club paying around £25.5m to sign Tevez when his two-year loan expires on 30 June.
Tevez has other considerations, namely the number of important games in which he was a substitute and the way he perceives the men in power at Old Trafford have let him down by not finalising the deal earlier.
Uppermost in his mind is that United have stated they think his valuation is, to quote Gill, "a bit toppy" and have spent several months trying, unsuccessfully, to persuade the consortium that owns his economic rights to lower the fee.
On the flipside, Tevez feels a strong emotional attachment to United and particularly their fans and knows that he would be giving up one of the elite teams in Europe.
City signed Gareth Barry from Aston Villa for £12m last week and hope to partner Tevez with Roque Santa Cruz, having resurrected their interest in a player who has an £18m release clause in his contract at Blackburn Rovers. Hughes also retains a strong interest in the Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o.</p>
