San Siro set to take a chance on Etihad Stadium headache.
AC Milan are favourites to land Carlos Tevez in January after agreeing personal terms with the player, according to reports in Italy.
The Argentine has not played for Manchester City since September and is back in his homeland as his relationship with manager Roberto Mancini has seemingly broken down beyond repair.
That has alerted some of the top clubs around Europe, and the Gazzetta dello Sport has claimed Tevez’s advisor, Kia Joorabchian, has agreed the deal with AC Milan.
The contract would see Tevez earn £3m in a six-month deal that would then be re-assessed in June, with another two-years on offer for the 27-year-old.
Given that AC Milan’s striking options have been dented by the health problems experienced by Antonio Cassano a move for Carlos Tevez in January may well make a great deal of sense, but make no mistake, this move could indeed be an unwise one given the Argentine’s propensity of insanity!
AC Milan started the season poorly but have recovered with a strong run of form and now sit in third spot, just one point behind leaders Juventus.
Massimiliano Allegri has an ageing San Siro squad and the club’s striking options such as Pippo Inzaghi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are both 30 years of age an over. Brazilian Robinho is a younger option but Carlos Tevez, bar the headache he may cause off the field of play, may well be an intelligent purchase.
