Man City prepare to sue Tevez for plunging transfer value

January 26, 2012 - London

Manchester City is planning to sue Argentine striker Carlos Tevez for up to 12 million pounds after his transfer value plummeted in the market following his refusal to train with the team since November.

City could now hit him further with a colossal damages claim for the loss of his transfer value in the market.

Tevez has already suffered a loss of around 10 million pounds in fines, wages and lost bonuses, due to his dispute with City.

Brazilian football club Corinthians had offered 38 million pounds for Tevez last summer but the deal couldn't be finalized, The Daily Star reports.

Since then, Tevez and City's relation have fractured massively and are deemed unrepairable now after the Argentinean striker went back to Buenos Aires without taking due permissions and refused to train.

Now, City is even finding it difficult to sell him with a deflated price tag of 26 million pounds.

Both of the Milan clubs, Inter Milan and AC Milan and French club Paris St Germain have pulled out from negotiations with City over signing Tevez.

"Now, we're no longer interested in Tevez," said Inter Milan director, Marco Tronchetti.
