Manchester City star closes on £10m Monaco contract

Published Add your comment

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has come to a tentative agreement with AS Monaco about a switch there this summer.

According to French publication L’Equipe, the newly promoted Ligue 1 side are ready to spend big to make an assault on PSG’s title next season and see the Citizens Argentine as the perfect signing.

Tevez has a contract until 2013 at Manchester City and is yet to agree an extension, which means he will head into the final year of the deal this summer.

The report claims Monaco’s billionaire owner Dimitri Rybolovlev has agreed a £10million-a-year deal with the former Manchester United and Boca Juniors star.

Monaco see Tevez as one of a number of high-profile signings as Rybolovlev looks to take the club from the principality back to the heights of European football.

Radamel Falcao is reportedly on the verge of joining Monaco, while they are also looking at the signing of Joao Moutinho from Porto.

Losing Tevez would mean further upheaval at Manchester City after it was confirmed on Monday night that Robert Mancini had been sacked as manager.
