On August 14th 2011, I dedicated a blog post to a laughable excuse made by Carlos Tevez where he claimed that he wanted to move away from Manchester City because he was homesick. The Argentinian wanted to be closer to home so his agent was attempting to move him to..
Yes - Arsenal Football Club who play their home games in London.
I worked out that Manchester to Buenos Aires was 6,931 miles whereas London to the Argentine capital was 6,916.
Alas, the move to Arsenal did not take place. He stayed at Manchester City until a few days ago.
The player is now signed to Juventus. I've got the calculator out and I can confirm that he is getting closer to home.
Turin is 6888 miles away.
He's getting closer.
