Carlos Tevez has made it no secret that he wants to leave Manchester City this transfer window. With Inter Milan emerging as the front-runner to sign the Argentinian star, Manchester City will look to get more than just cash for their captain.

Samuel Eto'o and Maicon could be heading in the opposite direction.

According to, Carlos Tevez is valued by City at around €45 million. With Inter Milan not being able to free up any extra funds this window, they would have to rely on a pre-established transfer budget to sign Tevez.

In essence, without the addition of a player in a deal for Tevez, Inter Milan would not be able to complete the signing of Tevez.

Yet, according to the article from Goal, Inter and Manchester City have discussed possible avenues for the completion of a swap, the most prominent of which is the idea of a swap including Maicon, Tevez and Eto'o all at once:

Funnily enough, both players could prove to be preparing for the departure of a few other players if you read further into signings. Obviously, the acquisition of Eto'o would mean that City have a direct replacement for Tevez, whilst the signing of Tevez for Inter could see the Sneijder to Manchester United deal go ahead.

Any deal would be completed in the coming days.
