Juve bid Melo and €5m for Tevez

Juventus could use Felipe Melo as part of the deal to sign Carlos Tevez from Manchester City.

The Bianconeri have stated they want a new centre-forward and negotiations are also on-going with Real Madrid for Gonzalo Higuain.

According to Leggo newspaper, Juve have suddenly moved closer to capturing Tevez after discovering they own a player City would like.

Felipe Melo has spent the last two seasons on loan with Galatasaray, but the Turkish side does not want to buy him outright.

Juventus could therefore add the Brazilian midfielder into the package deal with €5m to take Tevez from Manchester City.

This would solve two problems in one fell swoop for the Turin giants, who are otherwise struggling to place Melo.
