Carlos Tevez

News surfaced this week that Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez could be set for a summer move to Italian champions Juventus.

The Argentine international has also attracted interest from AC Milan, setting up the intriguing possibility of the Apache linking up with ex-Etihad teammate Mario Balotelli at the San Siro.

And though that’d be an interesting scenario in Italy, back in Manchester, the deposed Premier League champions would be short of strikers.

Should the 29-year old leave, new manager Manuel Pellegrini would be left with just Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, who has also been tipped for a summer exit.

Clearly, one-time Real Madrid boss Pellegrini would have to dip into the club’s apparently bottomless coffers and buy in a replacement for the former West Ham and Manchester United star, who has endured a sometimes controversial stay in the Premier League.

Tevez moved to England from Corinthians in 2006 and there were immediate concerns over his third-party ownership following his arrival at Upton Park.

He would later spend two years at Manchester United before leaving for their deadly rivals City, before causing an uproar by refusing to come off the bench in a Champions League game.

Never too far from controversy, Tevez’ stay in England has not been short of entertainment but it appears as though it is time for him to bid Britain farewell.

And if he does, here are 5 Key Replacements Manuel Pellegrini Could Sign.
