2 years at us is a coincidence. He would have wanted to stay here if we hadn't stupidly bought Berbatov and relegated him to 3rd striker at a time when we had possibly the best forward line in world football. It would now be 4 years and in my opinion 100 goals for this club. But hey ho, I've managed to get over that loss with the arrival of Hernandez who has brought back the manic pressing from the front which I loved about Tevez (besides the great skill and bulldog spirit).
And he shouldn't be blamed for wanting to leave City. They are still a small club, and a career is short. He deserves to be at a big club. He's wasted 3 of his 5 years in England playing at small clubs.
Disagree Stefan. Great player I am not going to deny, but he is far too easily influenced by his agent Joorabchian (or how ever you spell it!). Whenever that guy wants to make a few more quid, he encourages Tevez to leave and takes a huge commission from it. He would have left us or at least caused problems with demands to leave. Brilliant example of how agents are corrupting the game.

Surely though he's running out of options. How many clubs out there can afford what is likely not just a hefty transfer fee, but one of the largest player contracts around?
Its hard to believe anything that comes out of the Tevez camp (I say camp as he seems well managed by people that do most of his talking), but if its true he wants to go home (Argentina) or to a league (Spain or Italy) that feels more like home and is somewhere he can be with his family then I feel sorry for him.
However the proof will be in the pudding because if he really does want to move for personal reasons then he might be willing to take a pay cut to get the life balance he wants. Truth is no cub in Argentina can take on his salary. I expect the same might be true in Italy unless they clear out their other high wage players to fee up money. Then of course there is Madrid or Barca, but can you see either of them wanting or needing him?
This might all stem from the player having homesickness and or missing his family, but it could also be a fishing expedition to see if anyone is willing to pay up. Lets face it that is why he left you lot, as who would trade Manchester for Manchester unless it was for money!
