ADRIANO GALLIANI has confirmed that personal terms have been agreed with Tevez’s representatives.
Two meetings in 24 hours proved very productive in negotiations to bring Manchester City’s striker Carlos Tevez to AC Milan as the player agreed to join Milan and his terms have already been concluded.
According to Italian media outlets, Tevez has agreed €3 million wages from January to the end of the year, and then €5 million for three seasons. Galliani confirmed this evening that there is a deal with him.
“I’m in Milan now and I decided to skip a Champions League game for the first time… I had to stay in Milan with all due respect to Prague as this game doesn’t decide anything for us,” Adriano Galliani told Milan Channel on Tuesday. “I put some bricks to strengthen a squad which, in my opinion, is already formidable.
“I’ve met the agent of Tevez in my office and the situation is clear: there is an agreement with the player and we’ve just sent an email to Manchester City with our proposal, free loan with the right of redemption under certain conditions.” il Corriere dello Sport claims Milan will try to buy Tevez for a sum around €20 mil.
“Why should City accept our offer? He’s not playing, he is a great player and if he would do well, we’d buy him. The player has given up on a lot of money. He had some huge money-prizes with City for the Premier and the Champions League. I spoke with Carlitos and he wants to join us, half of the agreement is made, now wait for the response of City. I talked to Berlusconi about the Tevez-deal, and he agreed. And this shows once again how much he loves Milan. Tevez is a champion and if he came, it’d be great for Calcio.
“He’s a player of an absolute value. We are close, the player was fantastic, I repeat, Tevez has made great sacrifices and it shows he has a great desire to come to Milan. Cassano called me and said he’s happy for Tevez deal, and it was very nice, it is good and the fans are happy for the arrival of Carlitos too. I hope that City accepts our offer. I foiled a few enemies in Italy and Europe, I can’t say who. We’re in pole position.”
Milan and the Rossoneri fans are waiting for Manchester City’s with anticipation. It may be too early to say ‘Welcome’ but the deal seems to be in an advanced stage. Maxi Lopez is the alternative of the Argentine.
