Tevez prepared to reduce pay demandsApril 5th, 2009 - 2:59 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 5 (ANI): To ensure his move to Manchester United is completed during the summer, footballer Carlos Tevez is prepared to reduce his pay demands.
It has been claimed that United are reluctant to pay 30 million pounds to Media Sport Investments, who hold the Argentinean striker’s registration.
But Tevez is so desperate for the deal to be done he has told his advisers to lower their asking price so he can sign a new five-year contract, News of the World reported.
He is prepared to accept wages of around 70,000 pounds a week rather than push for the 120,000 pounds paid to United’s top earners Rio Ferdinand and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Tevez’s loan deal with United runs out in June and both Real Madrid and Manchester City have been tempting him with 100,000pound-plus a week offers.
“I cannot think of any team except United. I do not want to play with any other team. The United fans love me and my family is very happy both in Manchester and in England,” Tevez said.
“My thoughts are only about winning titles with United and I hope I will still be here next season. I always follow my heart, and my heart is telling me it will be impossible for me to leave English football,” he added. (ANI)
