Tevez running out of options

Carlos Tevez's chances of heading to Serie A appear to be all but dashed after deals with both Milan clubs reportedly broke down. The Argentinean striker hasn't played for Manchester City since the end of September following his very public falling out with manager Roberto Mancini, and Tevez had been holding talks with both AC Milan and Inter in the hope of securing a move away from England.
Defending champions AC Milan looked set to clinch the deal for the 27-year old after agreeing personal terms earlier in the year, only for the Italian club and City fail to agree on a transfer fee. The breakdown of the move had a big impact on Milan's plans for this transfer window; with Alexandre Pato close to sealing a move to PSG before Milan called off the deal following their failed pursuit of Tevez. Those following the">Betfair Serie A Betting Odds will be wondering what is going on.
Inter were then the most likely destination for the Argentinean after PSG admitted defeat in their battle to signing Tevez. That move now appears dead in the water after board member Marco Tronchetti Provera revealed the club were no longer in need of Tevez's services. Fans of">Betfair online need to remember this.
"Now we're no longer interested in Tevez. He is following a different path. Inter have recovered their champions and there is no need to have him or another, even if Tevez remains a great champion," he said.
Instead the club will wait for a number of their injured attacking options to return from fitness, rather than splash out £30million-plus on a striker who may well throw another strop in six months time. There is no doubting Tevez's credentials as a genuine world-beater, however, it remains to be seen which club will be prepared to take a chance on the erratic front-man. It doesn't appear to be any Serie A side, anyway.

Manchester City are going to crack says United player

Chris Smalling Manchester United central defender has said that after United win away to Arsenal, Man City will start to wobble.

The United player thinks that Roberto Mancini’s side will not be able to handle being the front runners, and with United in top form they are definitely going to feel the Red Devils breathing down their neck.

City will now also be without Mario Balotelli after he was given a four match ban for Violent conduct.

During the match against Spurs Balotelli was seen by millions of fans to stomp on Scott Parkers head.

The ref however did not see it, and Balotelli was allowed to stay on, and ironically scored the winning goal for city.

“We saw some of the City game coming to the game, and you’re obviously going to know about the result beforehand,” said Smalling.

“We knew that they scored in the dying minutes but we can’t keep relying on them to drop points and we needed to make sure that we did our job.

“Soon enough, if we keep ticking these wins then they’ll crumble.

“It was a massive win for us. Even at 1-1, we all knew that we really needed to win this game because of what happened earlier, and I think we showed real character.

“To be honest, we were expecting them (City) to win. They’re playing at home and we expected them to win. We just needed to make sure we won our game and not let that gap increase any more.”

Smalling thinks that it will be between United, and City for the title, but has not yet written off Spurs.

“Even if we lost or Tottenham won, I think you wouldn’t have ruled either of us out. Everyone’s still there.

“Tottenham’s last 10 games probably puts them at the top if you were to look at them. So I think it’s still crucial and it’s going to go all the way down to the last few.

“The other teams will find it hard, especially Arsenal-Chelsea, to catch us. You’ve seen with Tottenham they managed to catch up but I think it might be down just to us three.”
