CARLOS TEVEZ wants to wear the Milan shirt, but Juventus have made a much more lucrative offer.
AC Milan have shown interest in signing Manchester City problematic striker Carlos Tevez and have already had a meeting with the player’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, as they started initial talks about him.
There are many complications in bringing Tevez on loan in January, but according to Joorabchian, the 27-year-old, who previously played for Manchester United, would very much like to play for Milan.
“The meeting with Galliani was constructive and leaves me feeling good,” the agent told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Man City have authorized me to meet with the Milan leadership. In the summer Corinthians, Inter and Juve were interested. The deal with Inter didn’t materialize because their offer was rejected by City.
“At the moment Milan is the best solution for him, the first choice. Carlos wants the shirt of Milan. Wherever Tevez has gone he has won. Milan are a winning club and he will continue winning. Carlos is not afraid of competition. Playing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Pato and Robinho is a pleasure and also a stimulus.
“My client earns a lot? All great players have high salaries. However, we have not yet discussed this issue with Galliani. Carlos’ problem in the Premier League is not Manchester City, but [Roberto] Mancini.”
Milan are not alone in race for the Argentine: in fact Juventus have made a very attractive offer for the former Manchester City Captain. Their offer is €4 million net as wages from January to June and then, if they decide to buy him out, they’ll pay Tevez €9 million a season plus performance-related bonuses.
