Family key to Tevez stay – Kia

Tevez handed in a transfer request midway through last season amid

reports that he was eager to leave England and be closer to his

family who do not live with him, but later reversed that decision.

Despite being team captain and a key player in the team’s surge

towards Champions League football and the FA Cup, the Argentinean

continued to be linked with a move abroad, either back home to

Argentina or to Spain and many observers expected him to leave

Eastlands this summer. His representative Joorabchian has suggested

that may not be the case, though, and believes the City skipper

could yet remain. “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.”
