Real Madrid consider swap deal for Manchester City misfit

Real Madrid may use Khedira to bring Tevez to the Spanish capitalSpanish giants Real Madrid are considering a player plus cash swap for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez who according to the City manager Roberto Mancini, is “finished” at the club.

With City at the end of their tether with the wantaway Argentine, who was reported to have refused to play against Bayern Munich in their recent Champions League defeat, they are now prepared to listen to very much any serious offer in January with Real Madrid considering a small cash sum plus defensive midfielder and Germany international Sami Khedira.

The 24 year old is rumoured to be a player that Madrid could be prepared to sell on in January and it is believed they would rather use him in exchange for Tevez than stomp up a larger transfer fee. The summer saw Manchester City looking for at least £40m for Tevez with both Real Madrid and Italian side Inter Milan interested.

Neither were prepared to match City’s estimation however and with the Manchester club now looking to get rid of Tevez as quickly as possible, it is likely they will accept something closer to £25m for the 27 year old. The player had previously suggested over the summer that he would prefer to head back to his native Argentina but with few sides in South America able to pay his wages, let alone the transfer fee, a move to either Spain or Italy does seem more realistic.

Should Manchester City and Real Madrid agree to a switch then there is likely to be more pressure on Real’s strikers with the club already having Benzema and Higuain on their books.

Although it is far too early to confirm a move to the Spanish capital will happen, it is certainly the most likely scenario for a player who no longer looks to be wanted in the English Premiership.
