Milan stopper doesn’t want striker at the club.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

AC Milan defender Ignazio Abate has said that Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez would not be welcome at the club, talkSPORT reports.

The Italian international right back is currently in Brazil with his country competing in the Confederations Cup and he has reportedly moved to slam the notion of Tevez making the switch to the Serie A club amidst the constant links between the two in the press.

The 26-year-old believes that the Argentinian international would not be needed by the club as they already boast an impressive array of attacking options.

“We don’t need to sign Tevez,” the 27-year-old full-back said. “We have other great attackers, like (Giampaolo) Pazzini, who could not play much due to injury but when he did he was very good.”

Tevez’s former City strike partner Mario Balotelli joined the Rossoneri in the January transfer window and has already started life at the San Siro brightly by bagging 12 goals in 13 games.

Tevez had found life under Roberto Mancini difficult over the past two years, dipping in and out of the side and clashing with the former Inter man on several occasions, however, he has stated recently that he is not looking for a move and it is likely that he will wait and see what new man Manuel Pellegrini has in mind for him.
