Galliani: We Will Make No Swap For Tevez

It’s about that time again when clubs begin digging into their pockets to bolster their squads for the Last half of the season. The most famous transfer deal making headlines everyday without a doubt has to be of want away Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

It seems like with every passing day, a new twist emerges rendering the progress made futile. By the end of last week, it had been reported that both Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani and Carlos Tevez’s agent Kia Joorabchian.

However this week, new developments suggest that the Argentine could possibly move to PSG as the club’s wealthy owners are ready to meet City’s £35 million offer.

Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani on the other hand has revealed that Tevez is still the club’ main interest and that none of Milan’s strikers will leave just to make way for Tevez.

According to Galliani, the trio are untouchable!

“There is no chance that Pato can leave. If Tevez signs then it will be because Cassano has had the problem that we all know about. Pato, Robinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are untouchable. This isn’t a brilliant moment for him, but Pato is Pato. He scores almost a goal every two games. There is no Pato problem.”  Galliani said.

It is amazing to see the rumours doing the rounds. Makes me wonder whether people just make it up to create anxiety and excitement. Both Pato and Robinho have away maintained that they wish to remain with Milan for a very long time and that any rumours linking them with possible moves should be ignored.

Fellow Milan defender Taye Taiwo could however leave the San Siro after he stated that a move was much better than warming the bench. When questioned about the statement, this is what Galliani had to say:

“I’ve not read Taiwo’s interview, but I will. If the player wants to be sold then we’ll look to find a solution that suits everybody.” he said.

It will be a thorough shame to see Taiwo leave Milan. I am a big admirer of his and having made only a handful of appearances for the Rossoneri since joining at the end of last season, one has to sympathise with him.

The Nigerian has been linked with a move to Premier League club Arsenal, but only time will tell whether it materialises.
