Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone wants Argentine veteran Carlos Tevez back in Europe to play next season.
According to reports TMW, Simeone is keen on the former Juventus, Manchester City and Manchester United player. Tevez who was omitted from the Argentina’s Copa America team currently playing the continental tournament, is currently with Boca Juniors and is due to remain there till June 2018, based on his current deal.
Atlanta United remain interested in signing Carlos Vela, despite the player’s stance. According to ESPN’s John Sutcliffe, Atlanta United want the Mexican to join their squad along with PSV Eindhoven midfielder Andres Guardado.
Sutcliffe made the revelation when Mexico played against Paraguay at the Georgia Dome. Sutcliffe is known as one of the most reliable Mexican news sources.
Mexico manager Juan Carlos Osorio named his squad last week with two players being notably absent. The leaving out of Carlos Vela and Dos Santos received large scale condemnation but the coach insists that their absence will not hurt the team deep at the continental championship being held in United States this summer.
After causing much controversy in recent weeks, striker Carlos Vela finally got back on the scoresheet by securing a goal in the 2-1 loss against Getafe.
The future of the Mexican striker at Real Sociedad has been in doubt for the last few months. His form has been extremely poor to even consider a place in the starting line-up. Despite the club struggling for victories, Vela has been unable to get game time. His situation was made even worse when he was pictured at a Chris Brown concert in Madrid. More worryingly, he missed a training session in order to attend this concert.
Carlos Tevez was once the darling of the Argentina national team, but he has been on the fringes of the national team selection for the last few years.
Lionel Messi has been able to take his place, although there was initial resistance towards this move from the supporters. Messi was seen as a traitor at Argentina after having left as a youngster for Barcelona. There were even rumours that Messi thought about playing for the Spanish national team. Tevez, however, played in Argentina for most of his youth before moving to European football with West Ham.
Carlos Tevez will be regarded as a journeyman in football after having played for several clubs like West Ham, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus only in European football.
After having returned to Argentina in the summer to play for his hometown club Boca Juniors, this was seen as a last move for the striker. Given that he is 32 years of age, this move would comfortably see him towards the end of his career with no need of moving elsewhere. This may not be the case after Tevez’ agent claimed that a move to China may be on the cards.
Real Sociedad’s Carlos Vela has been fined after it was discovered that he attended a concert of Chris Brown and the Mexican player had told his club that he was going to miss a training session due to suffering from gastroenteritis but Vela was perfectly fine and he just used that as an excuse to skip a Monday training session from his team.
Carlos Vela is a Mexican player who managed to make a name for himself back in 2013 and 2014 with a number of impressive performances, Vela used to be a truly dominating player some time ago but things began to slip up for him and in this current season, reports are even claiming that this is his worst year as a player of Real Sociedad but he has recently shown signs of revival.
Carlos Vela’s career has been in the limbo for the last few years.
After being linked with a return back to Arsenal, the striker has failed to hit the same heights in recent times. This has seen him struggle for first-team opportunities in the last couple of seasons. After being used to making 35 or more league appearances in his first two years at Real Sociedad, Vela is on course to recording his worst season – in terms of league appearances – in the 2015-16 season. He has scored only two goals in 15 appearances for the Spanish outfit.
Arsene Wenger once again have to answer questions about his team being able to compete in the Premier League title race.
