Maradona to lure Tevez to Dubai

Interest in Dubai's domestic football scene could soon be given a major boost if Diego Maradona gets his way.Former Argentina player and manager Maradona, now in charge at Al Wasl in Dubai, is attempting to lure star striker Carlos Tevez to the Middle East, the Daily Star reports.According to the newspaper, Maradona has approached Al Wasl's financial backers to discuss a deal that could see Tevez swap Manchester for the emirate.It comes after former West Ham and Manchester United forward Tevez apparently refused to play for current club Manchester City in their recent 2-0 Champions League defeat against Germany's Bayern Munich.The latest incident appears to be the final straw for City manager Roberto Mancini, who has clashed several times with the striker over tactics and squad decisions.Tevez tried to engineer a move away from the club in the summer, but was priced out of a transfer by City, who reportedly require around £50 million for the talented attacker.
