City may sue Tevez over plummeting pricetag

Manchester City are considering suing Carlos Tevez for compensation after a plunge in his transfer value.
City want £25million for their former captain, whose decision to remain in his native Argentina since early November has cost the striker £9.3m in wages, fines and lost bonuses.
Tevez has not been paid by City since the end of November and senior figures at the club have not ruled out legal proceedings against the 27-year-old, who is effectively on strike.
City were offered £37m for the Argentine by his former club Corinthians last summer only for the deal to collapse over finances.
Milan have offered £20m, but City are adamant they will not enter any negotiations until their asking price is reached.
The City hierarchy are giving serious consideration to a civil case against Tevez to recoup the anticipated £13m loss on last summer’s valuation.
