Liverpool appear to have entered the race to sign Carlos Tevez if newspaper reports today are to be believed, but Juventus are still the favourites with bwin to be the Manchester City forward’s next club as speculation about the Argentine’s future refuses to go away.
Tevez has just one year left on his deal at the Etihad and with incoming manager Manuel Pellegrini yet to assess his squad, the former Manchester United striker’s future remains unclear with City having already spent over £50million on the singings of Jesus Navas from Sevilla and Shakhtar Donetsk’s Fernandinho.
It has sparked speculation that Tevez, who scored 17 goals in an inconsistent season for the dethroned champions last term, may yet end up at Liverpool, who attempted to sign the striker when Kenny Dalglish was in charge at Anfield.
The Reds are reportedly looking into the possibility of signing the Argentine should they lose Luis Suarez this summer, who has stated while on international duty he wants to leave the club and is wanted by Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
But the bwin bookies aren’t convinced that Liverpool is Tevez’s destination, going 20/1 that he signs for Brendan Rodgers’ side this summer. Instead, they make Italian champions Juventus favourites to be the former West Ham forward’s next club, chalking the Old Lady’s chances up at 11/10.
Big-spending French duo Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain, as they seem to be where every transfer is concerned these days, are high up in the betting, with bwin going 4/1 that Tevez follows in the footsteps of Falcao and joins Claudio Ranieri’s newly promoted side, while it is 6/1 he ends up at the Ligue 1 winners.
You can get 20/1 that Tevez returns to his homeland with either River Plate or former club Boca Juniors, while Atletico Madrid, looking to replace top scorer Falcao, are 33/1.
Another one of Tevez’s former clubs Corinthians are 40/1 to re-sign the striker, with Real Madrid a 66/1 chance. A sensational return to Manchester United is a 200/1 shot.
Finally, bwin go 13/20 that Tevez remains a Manchester City player beyond the end of the summer transfer window.
