Inter infuriate Milan over Tevez

The tussle for Carlos Tevez is getting bitter, as Milan are reportedly furious at Inter for raising their offer to Manchester City, while PSG are still there too.

The Rossoneri agreed personal terms with the striker in December, but City turned down their proposal to sign him on loan with an option to buy for €24m.

Talks are continuing with a reported offer to make the buy-out mandatory if Tevez plays 50 per cent of Milan’s matches from here to the end of the season.

However, Inter have dived into the fray this week and today’s Italian newspapers all claim Milan are “furious” at the interception.

The Corriere dello Sport suggests President Massimo Moratti ordered his staff to get him Tevez at all costs, taking advantage of a good rapport with Manchester City.

They would also take him on loan, but with the option to buy raised to €27m, providing much higher wages than Milan at around €7m per season plus bonuses.

There are other reports that the Rossoneri are planning a final desperate bid to sign Tevez by offering to sell City either Alexandre Pato or their own former player Robinho.

Paris Saint-Germain are also still in the race by proposing €35m up front, but Tevez is not thought to appreciate the option.

At this stage, Milan have to hope the player continues to turn down any alternative to the red and black jersey.

Meanwhile, Milan and Inter are also fighting on the transfer market for another Manchester City player, Aleksandar Kolarov.
