Carlos Tevez’s future seems to be in Serie A, but his agent confirms “Milan are the first choice” while Juventus raise their offer.
The Manchester City rebel had a total breakdown in the rapport with manager Roberto Mancini and a January move seems inevitable.
Representative Kia Joorabchian is in Italy at the moment and confirmed negotiations with the Rossoneri are on-going.
“Manchester City authorised me to meet with the Milan directors. Since this summer Carlos has received three offers from Corinthians, Inter and another Italian club, but City turned down Inter’s proposal.
“At the moment Milan are the first choice, as Carlos wants to wear the Rossoneri jersey. I am certain he’d win there, just as he has everywhere else. We have not yet spoken about the economic aspects with Adriano Galliani.
“Carlos’ problem in the Premier League is not City, but Mancini.”
This morning all the Italian newspapers suggest Milan may have got in there first, but Juventus are mounting a head-on assault to snatch Tevez away.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the Bianconeri have offered €4m wages net to play from January to June.
If the club activates the buy-out clause, then Tevez will have a three-year contract worth €9m per season plus performance-related bonuses.
This is reportedly far superior to the current terms on the table at Milan.
