Tevez to stay at City – agent

Carlos Tevez’s agent has told talkSPORT that the Milan-target is unlikely to leave Manchester City this month.

The Rossoneri have made numerous attempts to net the Argentine international, while Inter and Paris Saint-Germain have also made moves.

However, talking to Keys and Gray, Kia Joorabchian has confirmed that no deal has been agreed with City.

“There have been negotiations with three clubs, but they have not reached the figures Manchester City want,” Joorabchian noted.

“Carlos will remain at Manchester City until the summer. City would like to move him on but only at a certain price.

“This summer will open up a lot of markets. All of the big clubs are looking for players who can play in the Champions League.

“Tevez is Cup-tied now and that creates a big obstacle. You’re spending a lot of money on the transfer and his salary and he can’t play Champions League.

“You have three and half months and then you can re-structure your team, and buy Carlos, in the summer.

 “PSG? They want to build a long-term project and I think Carlos is six months too early for them. But there is a big chance he will go there in the summer.”

It’s understood that Milan made City another offer this morning in a final attempt to sign the former Manchester United man.

The Rossoneri are now expected to conclude a deal for Catania striker Maxi Lopez who has been lined up as an alternative to Tevez.
