New Delhi:

Argentine striker Carlos Tevez is likely to stick with Manchester City and instead bring over his family from Argentina, according to latest reports.


It has also been reported that City are willing to let Tevez leave for nothing when his contract expires in 2013 if he commits himself to the club for the next two years.

The claim has been made by the Sunday Mirror Sport which revealed that under agreement Tevez will be able to join Argentine club Boca Juniors in 2013.

There has been a question mark over Tevez's future after the striker disclosed his desire to move back to Argentina to be close to his family, who live there.

However his long-time agent, Kia Joorabchian, has said that Tevez is now ready to stay at Eastlands as he is prepared to bring his family over to Manchester.

"I don't think speculation about Carlos leaving is fair at the moment," Joorabchian told the Daily Star on Sunday. "I don't think money is a consideration.

"Maybe it's a case of his family coming over to him. That's something he's trying to sort out. I'm sure in the next week he will sort the family issue out.

"Once he does, he will announce it and everyone will be in a better place."

Despite the speculations about Tevez not being happy in England, Joorabchian insists the forward remains committed to City and is eager to help them win more titles after the FA Cup triumph last season.

"Carlos has always had a goal. The goal was that City needed to get into the Champions League and win a trophy," added Joorabchian.

"And they won a trophy and achieved that goal. Now that has given him a tremendous feeling. He held that trophy with a lot of pride.

"If you look at the team they are going to get stronger and stronger and, if Carlos stays, they would be my favourite to win the title.

"I'm sure that will be a factor in his mind and, the fact that City fans have embraced him, will count for a lot along with his great relationship with the supporters.

"I think all these factors will be positives for him to stay. Carlos has not made any decision to move. We have not asked to leave the club."
