Wages scuppered Tevez to Spurs move


Harry Redknapp - Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham failed in a bid to sign Carlos Tevez in January, according to Harry Redknapp.

The Argentina striker was out of favour at Manchester City at the time after a massive falling out with manager Roberto Mancini who claimed at the time that Tevez would never play for the club again – as we all know that proved out to be a lie since he has recently been featuring for the moneybags side.

Redknapp wanted to take advantage of the situation and offer Tevez some football – but it’s the same old story, we can’t afford the wages.  That’s not to say that City would have allowed Tevez to join Spurs who at the time were still in the mix for the title.

“I said to the chairman ‘can you get me Carlos Tevez?’,” Redknapp said.

“Daniel made some enquiries, but it wasn’t doable. If he could have done it, he would have.

“He (Levy) would have loved Tevez, but it wasn’t possible because his wages are £200,000 a week. It’s not possible at Tottenham to buy him.

“He is a fantastic player. When he puts a shirt on he doesn’t stop running, working, he’s enthusiastic, he can play and he can score goals.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Wow, that must have really surprised Dan, that Tevez wanted loadsa money ……… and, of course, he wouldn't have known that already, not being so clever as 'Arry!! Load of bollocks …..

    • I don’t get it. Everytimes, Harry will said he wants this guy and that guy and never once he gets the players that he mentioned. Tevez wages wld kill us and who doesnt know it and yet Harry got to say , get me Tevez ? Really ?

  2. Categorically NOT TRUE. Tevez wanted a transfer to a latin country because of family reasons (family couldnt settle in UK, language problems etc) so I doubt he wanted to go to Tottenham.

  3. Harry needs to go to be honesty was never a fan even when he got us into the champions league…Its amazing that in the whole premier league this harry guy is the only manger who still talks about which player he could have got get over it wer going into the month of may now and I hope u leave spurs even if you dont get the England job

  4. the wages are not a problem , Levy is super fing rich but dont wanna dish out. redknapp is developing into the uk's got talent number one fucking illiterate, as said above he keeps going on about players we coulda got but cant cos of the wages, gotta go and soon. bring in the chelsea bloke as the mad russkie now wants the barca slaphead after his new manager got him to the final of the champions with a clapped out team that looked shite all year. thats gratitude for yer
