Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has issued a come get me plea to Italian champions AC Milan. With time running out in the transfer window, the Argentine international is keen on getting his career back on track.
Speaking to Argentinean news agencies, Carlos maintained that he was flattered to be linked with a move to PSG but stated that Milan was the club for him.
“I see myself only in the red and black shirt, I am hoping for Milan,” Tevez was quoted by m24digital.
It is now almost 4 months since Tevez featured competitively in any game and the possibility of him playing this season grows dimmer with every passing day. Manchester City have since rejected offers from Milan , Inter and PSG refusing to sell Tevez for anything other than the £25 million he is valued at.
It was this that led Galliani to offer Brazilian striker Pato to PSG for 35 million Euros and then use the funds acquired to buy Tevez. The deal fell through when Pato refused to leave and Milan subsequently ended their pursuit of Tevez.
However, things have since changed and Milan are said to be plotting a revised offer for Tevez. According to reports doing the rounds, Galliani is still very determined to get Tevez.
Galliani’s desire for Tevez was revealed During a recent interview with the club’s official website:
“Tevez wants Milan? We also want Tevez,” Galliani said.
“We shall see, there are still seven days left until the end of the transfer window.”
Teve remains Milan’s plan a and should it fail to materialise again, then the Rossoneri will have to be content with Catania striker Maxi Lopez. Lopez is said to be nearing a deal with Milan and in my opinion would still be a great addition for Milan.
“If Tevez does not arrive, then Maxi Lopez will join us,” Galliani continued.
“Either one or the other, certainly not the two of them. I think he (Lopez) is already in Milan but we will now see what happens.
In an interview with Sky Sport Italia, Catania general manager Pietro Lo Monaco revealed that the deal was finalised yesterday.
“Maxi Lopez is virtually a Milan player,” he said.
“We found an agreement over the last few days and everything was made formal today.
“Milan have a few things to sort out before they can make the move official. The player asked us strongly if he could join Milan and we’ve decided to make that happen.”
Tevez fate will be known in the next 7 days. However, if no concrete deal is reached, the possibility of him not playing for the rest of the season cannot be ruled out
