Allez oops? Rumours are flying around France that Carlos Tevez will finish up at Paris St Germain, which is quite a long way from where he wanted to be in Milan.
Respected Agence France-Presse, otherwise known as AFP, are getting rather excited about the prospect of Carlos nonchalantly strolling along the banks of the Seine on his day off.
Their story is the basis for abs-cbnnews.com to state: "Tevez looks set to sign for Ligue 1 leaders PSG after they and Manchester City reached agreement on Tuesday, according to sources within PSG and club owners QSI."
Despite official denials, they continue: "PSG have offered Tevez a three-and-a-half year contract, though no fee has been announced. The deal is subject to the 27-year-old striker - who is due in Paris on Wednesday - agreeing to it.
"Ironically, Tevez's move to Italian champions AC Milan fell through last week because of the refusal of their Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato to move to PSG in a reported 28million euro deal."
The Independent's Ian Herbert is far from convinced, saying "Tevez faces the prospect of being forced to swap one uncherished job for another, with PSG expected to table a bid this week which would match City's likely £25m asking price.
Rumours in the French capital that Tevez was due to fly in today and that a deal between PSG and City has been done are wide of the mark
"Tevez is unlikely to covet the idea of a move to the French capital. Tevez wants to be at a club which would place him among fellow A-listers – namely Internazionale or Milan.
