Following the news that City manager Roberto Mancini and star striker Carlos Tevez had a bust up in which angry comments were made between the two, it seems that the conflict could see him move away from the club in January.
Mancini has indicated that he will look to use Tevez as a possible exchange deal in a bid to capture Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.
The deal seems to be something out of a story book rather than the manager’s handbook but we have to report what we hear.
A huge issue for any interested party in Torres will have to overcome is the fact that although Liverpool are in financial debt and are currently set firmly in the bottom three in the league, they do still realize that a sale of the striker to any club would cause a revolt.
Rumour has it that we can expect to see Man City make their first move for the out of form striker in the January transfer window , meaning that they will open their negotiations with a staggering £55million bid.
With Liverpool now looking to get back on track with a new owner coming in why should they sell torres when they could afford both players, now that would be a deadly strikeforce think about it Tevez Torres.

Although there could be a number of reasons for the dodging of the question, pundits are already taking about who and where would best suit the powerful striker and with Real Madrid already showing interest in the player before the time of their Mourinho reign and the fact that the players former manager is now on the hotseat of the Spanish giants means that the move could well be a reality.
“When I signed a new contract at Chelsea, I always said I wanted to finish my career here,” Drogba told Canal Plus. “But I am well placed to say that anything can happen.
“When I was at Marseille I said I would finish my career there but, one week later, everything changed.”
Saying that Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres could be both playing in the sky blue of Manchester City next season money always talks

It was Madrid but now Barca say they have a say in signing wayne rooney in the january transfer market.A highly-placed Barca source was quoted in the Sunday Mirror as saying: “Rooney’s position is worth monitoring if things become increasingly difficult for him in England.”
”Barcelona are ready to offer Wayne Rooney an escape route from Manchester United. Rooney has hit the headlines recently for his relationship with a hooker. The Spanish champions believe the 24 year-old striker is struggling to cope with the increasing public scrutiny he is facing. A highly-placed Barca source said: “Rooney’s position is worth monitoring if things become increasingly difficult for him in England.’”
If the situation were to arise, I doubt whether Barcelona would be his only suitors, who knows maybe its Manchester city’s turn next week
News also leaked out that in the summer Arsenal made a cheeky bid to try sign Liverpool’s Pepe Reina which was rejected. Arsenal will now step up their chase for Liverpool stopper Pepe Reina during the winter transfer window, following Manuel Almunia ‘s latest blunder.
Liverpool will fight hard to keep Pepe Reina and it would be a massive surprise if he went for a move from liverpool even though they are indeed going through a very tricky time.
Could it happen I dont think so but arsenal need a quality keeper asap to mount any good chance this season after loosing to west brom on the weekend.
Barcelona’s Gerard Pique attacked liverpool this weekend says it’s embarrassing for Fernando Torres to be playing for Liverpool.
“There is no way this can go on for Nando. It’s just impossible,” said the former Manchester United player in the Star.
“I spoke with him before he committed to Liverpool and he told me he wanted to win things with Liverpool – but if the club didn’t invest and show real intent, he would be forced to leave.
“It’s really embarrassing for Nando to play in a team of that quality.
