Tevez only wanted Juventus

Carlos Tevez was also of interest to Milan, Anzhi and Monaco before accepting a move to Juventus, his representative has stated.

The Argentine international completed his transfer to the Turin giants on Wednesday after a deal was agreed with Manchester City.

Milan were also very keen on the striker, but they were not in a position to make a bid for the forward.

“Milan are a little angry? I’m sorry if that is the case, but Carlitos wanted to join Juventus,”  Kia Joorabchian told the Corriere dello Sport.

“Anzhi really wanted him too, a club where he would have earned a lot more money, but he wanted a club with a great history, a rich tradition and, naturally, with an ambitious and important project.

“Carlitos chose Juventus because he still wants to win in Europe before returning to Boca Juniors. He wants to help the club win their third Scudetto in a row.

“Monaco? Yes, they were also there. We saw each other and discussed him, but the offer from the Bianconeri was the most engaging.”

The Old Lady are looking to strengthen this summer in an effort to compete in the Champions League.

“I saw Bayern Munich a lot and Juve were one of the few sides who caused them problems,” Joorabchian added. “Tevez can help to reduce the gap.”

The German giants, who went on to win the competition, beat Juve 4-0 on aggregate in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
