Carlos Tevez is heading out of Manchester City – with Sergio Aguero ready to take his place.
Tevez came on for fellow countryman Aguero as Argentina were knocked out of the Copa America by Uruguay, with the unsettled City star missing the decisive penalty in a shoot-out.
And Aguero, the Atletico Madrid star he replaced, is lined up to fill his £40million boots if Tevez leaves City, possibly for Corinthians of Brazil.
Aguero is so keen to come to England he will even take a pay cut to make it happen. City are poised to give him a lucrative contract worth £160,000 a week – which is well short of what he makes at present.
Aguero is on £6m a year AFTER tax. To earn that at City he would need a huge £240,000 a week.
He could make nearer that at Juventus, but his father-in-law Diego Maradona is against that move.
