Inter Milan are ready to offer Carlos Tevez an escape from Manchester City, but only if the Premier League leaders halve the £40 million asking price they are demanding.
Tevez, 27, has been sidelined by boss Roberto Mancini after allegedly refusing to come off the bench during his side’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich last month.
Inter have been linked with the Argentinean ace in the past, and are now reportedly prepared to bid for the striker, but only if he is available for a cut-price £20 million deal in January.
Having already stated that the former Manchester United man’s career at the Etihad Stadium is over, it is thought Mancini would be interested in any such bid in order to remove the troublesome star from his squad.
Reports also claim that Premier League rivals Tottenham are considering a bid for Tevez, but only on similar terms in a deal worth no more than £20 million.
Tevez, who is facing disciplinary action after serving his two week suspension, and has been training on his own after returning to the club last week, is thought to be holding out for a permanent move rather than a temporary loan move.
