Italian giants not in for Argentine forward.
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has ruled out the club trying to sign Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez this summer, according to Sky Sports.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a move to the San Siro before, and was widely tipped to join them after his public fall-out with former City boss Roberto Mancini last season.
However, a move failed to materialise and the Argentine remained at the Etihad Stadium, eventually finding some good form again in the 2012/13 season, despite City failing to win any silverware.
However, he is understood to still be interested in a move abroad, and has also found himself linked with Juventus and Monaco in this summer’s transfer window.
With City supposedly interested in Milan star Stephan El Shaarawy, it had been rumoured that a swap deal involving Tevez could take place to bring the young Italian to the Premier League runners-up. However, Galliani has hinted that the former Manchester United striker may be out of their financial reach unless they sell some players first.
“Tevez is not a transfer target for us,” he said.
“Before we will try to bring in new players, we will have to sell some of our own players first.”
It remains to be seen if Tevez will fit into new manager Manuel Pellegrini’s plans, but both he and Edin Dzeko seem likely to be offloaded as City target the likes of Edinson Cavani, Robert Lewandowski and Stevan Jovetic as new additions upfront.
