Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has ruled out a move for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, as he believes it would jeopardise the long-term future of the club, ESPN
The Spurs boss has hinted in recent months that he would love to take the Argentinian to White Hart Lane, which will be more likely on a loan deal. Spurs need that one world-class player to bolster their title challenge, according to Redknapp, and Tevez would be that acquisition. City are desperately trying to offload Tevez, who has still not returned to Manchester following his bust-up in Munich in September, but Tottenham will not be that club.
Redknapp believes that Tevez’s wages will be astronomical and is not prepared to jeopardise the wage structure at Tottenham with a move for the striker. Tevez is also being linked with Italian side AC Milan and their loan offer has been called derisory by the Premier League leaders. Spurs are looking for a player, but Redknapp insists the club are not making moves.
‘I like him. He’s a great player. He is fantastic – a battler, a real talent – but we are not going to be able to get him. It’s not happening. We are not pursuing it. The chairman won’t put the club in trouble for one player. His wages would be astronomical’¸Redknapp said.
