Argentine striker Carlos Tevez has revealed that he turned down the advances of AC Milan before signing for Juventus according to The Guardian.

Tevez completed his £7.6 million transfer from Manchester City to Juventus on Wednesday evening and could not hide his delight at joining the Italian champions.

Tevez endured a turbulent spell at the Etihad Stadium, notably when he went on strike back in his native Argentine following a very public spat with former boss Roberto Mancini.

The pair would go on to put an end to their disagreement before lifting the Premier League trophy but with Mancini reportedly unable to keep his dressing room happy last season, and Tevez having never especially enjoyed Manchester as a city, it seemed likely that the striker would leave the club sooner or later.

Tevez revealed that he cannot wait to put on the iconic number ten shirt of the club that has previously been worn by the likes of Alessandro Del Piero and Michel Platini.

Tevez will now link up with Spanish striker Fernando Llorente, who joined the Old Lady on a free transfer from Atletico Bilbao at the back end of last season.

Juventus chiefs are hoping the pair’s goals will help them re-establish the club amongst the domiant forces in European football.
