Inter out and even more reasons for Tevez to stay a Hammer

Inter Milan have ended their ambition to sign Carlos Tevez from West Ham United. Inter have signed David Suazo from Cagliari and now with a glut of strikers on the books there is no need for such an expensive player.

"He is no longer our objective" - Inter president Massimo Moratti

Tevez was keen on the switch, but it has emerged that West Ham have made a book smashing offer to keep the player on the books for a single season. They are offering Tevez 115,000 pounds a week and a 3m pound ‘loan’ payout to Kia Joorabchian, the owner of Tevez’s rights. The deal totals an astounding 9m pounds. This would suddenly make Tevez one of the Premierships highest paid players.

It’s clear West Ham see the problems they are having attracting top talent despite plenty of money for transfer fees and salaries. A commitment from Tevez would be an indication to potential suitors that the club has ambitions and wants the top talent.

Tevez singlehandedly kept West Ham in the Premiership last season. I think he should stay, I thought so even before the huge offer, and I think the offer is money well spent if it keeps him there and opens up the potential for more transfers to the club.

Tevez is going to arsenal. He wants to go to a big club that will be playing in the champions league, not stay at a club that barely escaped relegation...he's too good for that.

Tevez mnay decide to stay at West Ham for another season on "loan" since he may believe he'll have a chance to go to Inter the following season, since this clearly seems to be his target club.

If he signed for another club, such as Arsenal or Liverpool he's unlikely to have that flexibility since he'll be tied to a 3 or 4 year contract.

Tevez is not going to Arsenal! He knows that West Ham beat Arsenal each and every time! He can't live with that. If he stays in England I'm certain he'll be back in the East end.

Hardly single-handedly.
There are eleven players on the pitch and it does happen to be a team sport.
He's good, but not that good.

The arrival of Neill and the emergence of Mark Noble has as much to do with West Ham staying up as Tevez's brilliance in front of goal. Anyone who watched the last 10 games would know that. However, the club should move heaven and earth to keep him. If D Bent is worth £18m (he isn't) Carlitos is worth £50m in my book

LOL @ ppl saying carlito "is not that good".

if you followed him, you know he's got at least 60% chance not move to another EPL club.
only thing would keep him in EPL if he leaves the hammers is mascherano, for how heavy that influence is, even if you don't believe the chance of him going to KOP, you can be sure he's not going to the gunners :D
either stay at westham and take his 115k gbp/week cut or go to spain IMO
