West Ham yesterday had an astonishing loan bid rejected for suspended Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez. Tevez himself was on the Hammers books from 2006 until 2008, playing an integral part in preventing his side from succumbing to what was looking a likely relegation from the top flight.
The Argentine famously scored the only goal in a 1-0 win at Old Trafford on the final day of the season to secure West Ham’s Premier League status.
Tevez has been suspended pending an investigation into his alleged refusal to appear against Bayern Munich in midweek, but Manchester City are not prepared to allow their controversial frontman to leave on loan, and will be looking to recoup as much of the reported fee of over £40 milllion they dished out on him 2 years ago.
It was certainly an ambitious bid from West Ham, but one which was probably made more in hope than expectation.
