Spanish football giant Real Madrid is ready to offer Argentine star Carlos Tevez an escape from his Manchester City nightmare.
The Spanish club is understood to want Tevez, whose City career is effectively over following his alleged refusal to play against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last month.
City would this week announce what action they intend to take against him following an internal investigation into the striker's Munich mutiny, The Mirror reports.
Real boss Jose Mourinho wants Tevez, whose two-week suspension ends on Thursday and who is back home in Buenos Aires.
City want at least 35million pounds for Tevez, but the striker will have to overcome the stumbling block of Real being unwilling to meet his wage demands of 250,000-pounds-a-week.
