TEVEZ `NO` TO FERGIE
Carlos Tevez has reportedly told Sir Alex Ferguson that he will not be returning to Manchester United next season.
The Guardian claims that the Argentine striker is 'fed up' with life at Old Trafford after being left out of United'a most important games, culminating in his place on the bench for the Champions League final.
The report claims that Ferguson has twice called Tevez from his holidays to ask him to reconsider, but Tevez wants to leave after receiving no reassurances that he will start more games next season.
Tevez' destination is likely to be Manchester City, who are offering a 75% pay rise to take his weekly salary to £140,000 a week.
They are probably the only club prepared to pay the whole £25.5m asking price in one payment.
You'll Never Walk Alone! - i have the best job in the world!
i bet he said " F O Alex!"
JOHNSON OPTS FOR LIVERPOOL
RAFA BENITEZ is on the verge of making Glen Johnson Liverpool’s first summer signing after Chelsea beat a tactical retreat in their chase for the England defender.
Portsmouth are understood to have agreed a fee with Liverpool following more talks yesterday that could eventually reach £18.5 million for one of the Premier League’s most daring full-backs.
Liverpool will offset the outlay by selling Alvaro Arbeloa to Real Madrid for around £8m. ---> i wish it is true. kekeke
They are also still owed £7m from Portsmouth as part of the deal that took Peter Crouch to Fratton Park last summer.
Johnson, 24, had been the subject of a similar bid from Chelsea, but sources at Stamford Bridge last night indicated that their interest in a player who only left the club two years ago had waned.
Anfield boss Benitez’s long-standing interest in Johnson is thought to have been a major factor in the player indicating he preferred a move to Merseyside.
Manchester City, Tottenham and Bayern Munich had also been keen on Johnson, but the prospect of helping Liverpool push on from last season’s second-place finish in the Premier League appeals.
Despite the size of the fee, it is an indication of the constraints that Benitez is working under that Arbeloa, who began his career at Real Madrid, will be sacrificed to help fund the cash.
Real president Florentino Perez is pursuing other high-profile targets first, among those being Xabi Alonso, because he is aware that a move for Arbeloa will be straightforward.
Benitez is also likely to allow Andrea Dossena to return to Italy after just one season at the club with Juventus interested in a £6m deal.
