#Teveztotottenham

When you see both Carlos Tevez and Tottenham in the same sentence, transfer window springs to mind. But, while it is still two months until January’s show-piece opens, Spurs have been linked with a move for the Argentine. Unfounded you say? Won’t happen we hear? Well, while football is a place for dreaming, To the Lane and Back looks at the potential prospect of Tevez moving to Spurs….?

The title became one of the highest trending topics over the summer courtesy of Dom Paczko’s excellent rumour about Carlos Tevez potentially move to Tottenham before the close of the transfer window. His piece, as brilliant as it was a clear fabricated piece of journalism, topped News Now for a matter of hours, receiving more hits than any story on the BBC website or Sky Sports News.

However, could there really be some truth in the rumour? With the Argentine still serving a suspension from Manchester City, following his refusal to take to the pitch during the 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich last month, while the upturn in Mario Balotelli’s form will see Tevez struggle to break back into Roberto Mancini’s starting XI, should he be given the chance to do so.

Having been linked with a move to the likes of Inter Milan and Corinthians, Harry Redknapp has made no secret of his desire to bring Tevez to Spurs should he become available on a short-term deal. West Ham United have already seen an audacious bid for the front-man turned down and continue to declare their interest in their former star but, any loan move will look to fall flat on its face with City seemingly keen to offload him the 27-year-old for a fee of at least £40m.

Many Spurs fan admitted they would jump at opportunity of signing Tevez, his added class up front would certainly boost their credentials for top four contenders while also adding to the fierce competition set up front. However, as good as Tevez is, it is his attitude that is the problem for any potential signing. His refusal to come on as a substitute in the aforementioned Champions League tie epitomised how much of a bad egg the player can be. But, Redknapp also has a trait of bringing out the best in players that have gone, somewhat, ‘off the rails’. Emmanuel Adebayor and William Gallas are two players that have improved, attitude wise, since moving to Spurs and playing under his stewardship.

Nonetheless, it is highly unlikely that Spurs would be able to afford his wages and Tevez’s demands would prove to be a major stumbling block. Plus, having already loaned one striker in Adebayor this season, it is impossible for Spurs to take another Premiership striker on from City, due to the rules set out by the League. So while Tevez may be a good signing, even if it is a short-term one, it is impossible for Spurs to make such a shrewd acquisition, unless they were to sign him on a permanent basis, something I can’t see Daniel Levy sanctioning. But hey, we can dream right?
