It’s official! Want away Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez will join Italian giants AC Milan on January 2nd on a loan deal that will see him earn 3 million Euros for the 5 months to the season’s end in May 2012 .
Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani revealed this yesterday stating that club had agreed to personal terms with Tevez. Speaking to the club’s official television channel, Milan Channel, Galliani further went on to explain in detail the complexities of the deal which would see the club buying Tevez at the end of the season for 15 million Euros on a three year contract.
“We have an agreement with Tevez, he wants to come to Milan,” Galliani said.
“We proposed a loan to Manchester City and now we wait for a response.
“We should then redeem his contract [permanently] and he will then earn €5 million per year until 2015.
“It will be a solution, one that has been suggested by Milan, of around €15m which should satisfy the Arab leadership.”
Galliani also revelead that Tevez had taken a massive pay cut in order to move to Milan. Currently the Serie A’s highest paid player is Tevez’s new team mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is reported to earn 9 million Euros every year.
The 5 million Tevez will be getting every year is a far cry from his £200,000 weekly wage while he was at City and if it was about the money, then City have probably gotten out the better of the two sides.
That said, i am relishing the opportunity to see Tevez in action for the Rossoneri. With a striking line up that includes: Pato, Ibrahimovic, Robinho and Cassano, there is no doubt that Milan have the most lethal striking force in Europe.
Meanwhile, City manager Roberto Mancini believes that Carlos Tevez is being misguided by the people around him. Speaking to French Daily L’EQuipe,Mancini believes that Tevez is a good person despite his actions.
“He’s a good lad, in spite of his recent behaviour,” Mancini said.
“But maybe he does not have the people around him to give him the right advice.
“Tevez behaved stupidly in the way a player shouldn’t, especially a great player.”
