Former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez came extremely close to joining AC Milan a few weeks ago before completing his move to Juventus. The striker has been signed by Juventus for £ 10 million, and he is expected to create a major impact for Antonio Conte’s men. AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli, however, has said that he wanted Milan to complete the signing of the player with whom he played for a few years at the Etihad stadium. Balotelli knows Tevez from his time at Manchester City and he is convinced that he would have certainly improved Milan as a team.
Tevez is one of the players who gives everything on the pitch, while his ability to score goals have been a major asset for the likes of Manchester United, West Ham, and Manchester City in the last seven years. Milan were in negotiations with City for a number of weeks before they pulled out at the last moment after appearing to have not reached the conclusion with the Premier league outfit. Milan vice president Adriano Gallaini revealed that the deal was financially not feasible for the club, which has suffered a lot of problems financially in the last few years.
Milan have been slowly recovering by trying to lower the age of their squad.
“I don’t fear Juve, I fear nobody. Tevez? He’s a friend and I told him to come to Milan, but he didn’t listen me and he went to Juve. If it happens, when we meet on the pitch, I’ll make fun of him. It has been good to hear this. In football you never know, but Milan is the club I have in my heart, they are a good club with really good supporters. Now I feel good here and I’ll stay here, then, one day, we will see,” said Balotelli.
