Robinho urges Tevez to join City

Tevez looks set to leave Manchester United after failing to agree a new deal with the Premier League champions.

The Argentine has been linked with a move to Manchester City in recent weeks.

Robinho said: “We would definitely complement City’s attack. I hope my club make a move for him.

“It would be a pleasure to play with Carlos. He is one of the best players in the world and it is a shame he is not having more opportunities at his current club.

“If he leaves United – as I have been reading in the last few days – and if the interest of City gets confirmed, of course I will try to convince him to join us.

“I am sure we would make a fiercesome duo up front. He is so fast and combative with great technique.”

Robinho added: “If Carlos comes to City, and if the club manages to get two or three players of the same quality we can aspire to big things.

“This season was not our best, but this was also our first year together and I don’t regret the option I made a year ago. In the coming season fans can definitely expect to see us in the top spots of the league.”
