Tevez in fresh Inter link

Carlos Tevez is again being linked with a move to Inter after he met transfer chief Marco Branca in Sardinia.

The Manchester City striker came across the Nerazzurri official while on holiday in Italy with his family.

Some reports in the peninsula are suggesting that the meeting was just casual, but the striker has been linked with Inter in the past.

Tevez has put in a transfer request at the Premiership club, citing family reasons for his desire to leave.

However, his future does remain in doubt after his proposed switch to Brazilian side Corinthians collapsed this week.

Given the circumstances, it is no surprise that the Italian side are again being associated with a move for the forward.

Branca admitted earlier this summer that a swoop for Tevez would be impossible because of the costs involved.

Tevez though would seem to be a good fit in Gian Piero Gasperini's 3-4-3 plans, while the money needed to buy him could come through the sale of Wesley Sneijder.

The Dutchman is reportedly a €39m target for Manchester United. City want over €40m for the ex-West Ham forward.
