Zola: 'Juve should buy Tevez'

Gianfranco Zola advises Juventus to make a January bid for Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez. “He can be decisive for the Scudetto.”

The striker is on the market after refusing to come off the bench during the 2-0 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich, infuriating manager Roberto Mancini.

“I have to say, whoever buys Carlos is getting a bargain. I like Juventus, as Antonio Conte is tough and trying to give his men a new style of play. If he had Tevez as well...” Zola told Tuttosport.

“I cannot say if the split with Mancini is definitive. It's true great champions want to play all the time and feel they are in the spotlight. Tevez is now, partly through his own doing, no longer untouchable at City.

“Carlos has character and I think that arriving at a new club in January he could already be decisive for the Scudetto race. Someone like him can make the difference in a balanced League like Serie A and would give further lustre.

“To be back at the top our football needs world class players and Tevez fits the bill.”

Other Serie A sides interested in the Argentine include Inter and Milan.
