Spanish giants to upset Liverpool with suggested Carlos Tevez summer bid
In an interview with AS, Diego Simeone admitted that Tevez would be an ‘ideal’ signing for Rojiblancos – revealing that the club were in talks with his agent – and he could already be on his way to the Estadio Vicente Calderon.
According to Spanish news outlet Sport, the Argentina forward has purchased a home in Spain, suggesting that talks over a move to the La Liga outfit are at an advanced stage.
Sport state that the property was purchased through Proto Organization LTD London – who boast such clients as superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi – and the former Manchester United forward is confident he will be competing with the duo in Spain next season.
Take a look below at images of his reported new house, which includes 700 square metres over two floors, a 2,000 square foot garden, and even features an artificial lake and waterfall:
Reports in talkSPORT claimed that Liverpool were rumoured to be preparing a £15m bid after the 31-year-old told Juve that he wished to leave Turin in the summer.
The Reds, however, look almost certain to miss out on the experienced forward if Sport’s claims proves correct.
