Man City transfers: Milan chief hopes Carlos Tévez spurns Juventus
Man City transfers: AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani says he hopes Carlos Tévez spurns interest from rivals Juventus
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has admitted he would not be happy if Manchester City striker Carlos Tévez completed a move to Juventus.
The Argentina international’s long-term future at the Citizens is in doubt, with the striker’s current City contract set to expire at the end of the 2013-14 campaign.
Tévez came close to completing a move to Milan in January before resolving his differences with ex-City manager Mancini, and Galliani hopes the Argentine spurns Juve.
“I would mind a bit if he should go to Juventus, given the friendship we have built with him,” Galliani told Sport Mediaset.
“But the president Berlusconi is right – if Tévez had arrived in Milan, Balotelli would not have come here.
“We also followed Neymar but he was too expensive for us.”
Milan did manage to land another City striker, Mario Balotelli, in January, with the Italy international scoring 12 goals in 13 Serie A appearances.
