Homesick Tevez Could Derail City’s Title Bid

One week on from Wayne Rooney’s transfer tantrum, and this week’s news is all about some proven players. Carlos Tevez is said to be missing Argentina and wants out, while Pepe Reina and Fernando Torres are probably just missing the feeling of winning games – hence the duo’s supposed wish to get out of Anfield.

Certainly, the future of Tevez is an interesting topic. I may have inadvertently belittled the tiny Argentine a few weeks back, but there’s little doubt in my mind that he’s a better player than Ronnie, and that losing him could cause City to miss out on the Premiership title, if he was to leave in January. Anyway should he leave in January or in the summer, it could force a nice little merry-go-round in the Premiership this summer. Personally, I think Tevez could go home, with Torres going to City and Bent trading Sunderland for Liverpool. What do you think?

The Real Talking Points

Roque Santa Cruz says that he and Carlos Tevez want to leave Manchester City. Tevez is said to be homesick and longing for a return home, while Santa Cruz basically just wants to play. City are tracking Wolfsburg’s Edin Dzeko as a possible replacement for Tevez. Obviously, the man who replaces Cruz is unknown as a different punter probably sits in his seat each week.

Pepe Reina and Fernando Torres are both ready to quit Liverpool. Roy Hodgson isn’t, but he may not get much choice in the matter, if rumours are to be believed.

Wesley Sneijder has signed a two-year extension at Inter Milan, much to the disappointment of Manchester United.

Big News if it Happens

Ryan Giggs could be offered up to £200K-a-week to go and play in the Middle East, according to the highly reputable, always-based-on-facts publication, The Sun.

Liverpool are interested in Blackpool’s Charlie Adam, Roma’s Mirko Vucinic, and more worryingly Manchester City’s Shaun Wright Phillips – a man who’s dribbling style often resembles an out-of-control Black Cab with a faulty Sat Nav.

Spurs want Karim Benzema and Getafe’s Derek Boateng, while Robbie Keane maybe heading to Juventus. To be fair, Keane’s performances have resembled that of an Old Lady of late.

Manchester United are now tracking Sunderland’s Jordan Henderson.

News That’s Barely Interesting

Blackburn’s new owners are thinking of selling the naming rights to Ewood Park. Reports that the stadium could be called the UFC Cage (Ultimate Fighting Championship), in order to echo the home side’s playing style, are said to be untrue.

Every man and his dog is said to be tracking Anderlecht’s 17-year striker, Romelu Lukaku. Spurs have apparently had a £17.5 million bid turned down.

And Finally…

Manchester United have been keen to show fans that giving Wayne “One Good Season” Rooney 250,000 squid a week is a good idea. They are now reportedly giving John O’Shea, a master in displaying average/inept defending anyway across the back four,  £80K a week.
