Man City transfers: ‘Tevez contract talks will continue in the summer’
Man City transfers: Brian Marwood says the Citizens will continue talks with Carlos Tevez about a new deal at the end of the season
Carlos Tevez is happy at Manchester City despite the striker’s ongoing contract situation, according to the club’s football administration officer Brian Marwood.
The Argentina international’s current contract is set to expire in the summer of 2014, with the forward’s long-term future at the Eastlands outfit still very much in doubt.
Tevez, who is facing a possible prison sentence after being charged with driving while disqualified last week, has been one of City’s top scorers this season, with 15 goals in 35 appearances.
Marwood revealed the Citizens have received no offers for the former West Ham United striker and the club plans to discuss a new deal with Tevez at the end of the season.
“Everyone knows Carlos only has a year left on his contract but he has been fantastic for Manchester City, his scoring record, his tenacity, his energy,” Marwood is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.
“I think he is in a good place at the moment. Roberto Mancini has talked about extending Tevez’s contract and these conversations will continue in the summer.
“We have had no offers and Carlos is happy at the club. Discussions will take place at the end of the season in terms of his future at City.”
Tevez has scored 71 goals in 133 appearances for the Citizens after completing a move to City from Manchester United in 2009.
