Odds offered on Tevez departure destination
Following Carlos Tevez’s confirmation that he wants to leave Manchester City for family reasons, bookmakers are asking punters to predict the Argentine striker’s next move.
The 27-year-old former Man Utd and West Ham forward recently released a statement saying: "Living without my children in Manchester has been incredibly challenging for me. Everything I do, I do for my daughters. I need them to be happy because my life is about them now. I need to be in a place where they can adapt.”
With his comments – and likely hefty price tag – in mind, Paddy Power have installed Spanish giants Real Madrid as 7/4 favourites for the South American’s signature, followed by Premier League heavyweights Chelsea at 4/1. Italian sides Inter and AC Milan are offered at 4/1 and 6/1 respectively, while a return to his first club Boca Juniors is priced at 10/1.
For those who think Tevez might perform a U-turn and decide to stay at Eastlands, Sky Bet are offering odds of 2/1 that the fans’ favourite doesn’t leave the club during the summer transfer window.
