Carlos Tevez will take his time before deciding on his future with Manchester City after winning the FA Cup on Saturday.
Tevez is widely expected to leave the Premier League this summer after six years, playing for West Ham United and Manchester United before the move to Eastlands.
City are expected to want £50 million for their top scorer, who is just behind Dimitar Berbatov on 19 league goals for the season. But that means there will only be a handful of clubs able to afford him.
“It’s difficult to be far from my daughters,” Tevez was quoted as saying by El Mundo after helping City beat Stoke 1-0.
“I will think hard about what is best for me, first I want to clear my head, I’m very well, very calm, but l also want to make it clear that I have no problem with the board, nor with Roberto [Mancini].
“As there has been a lot of talk that I have a problem with Roberto, I want to clear that up. If I stay at City I have to start thinking about what I can bear and it’s very difficult, that’s the truth.”City boss Roberto Mancini was adamant after the Cup final that Tevez would not be leaving the club ahead of their first ever season in the Champions League.
Asked if Tevez would be staying, Mancini said: “Yes. Tevez has a five-year contract staying with us. He has a five-year contract with us, he doesn’t want to leave.”
