Baresi lauds Milan’s Tevez chase

Milan legend Franco Baresi has applauded the club’s proposed move for Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez.

The Rossoneri are attempting to sign the Argentine during the January transfer window and Baresi thinks it would be a fine swoop.

“If there is the possibility to enrich the squad then Tevez would be welcome,” the former centre-back told Sky Sport Italia.

“He is a great player and the numbers speak for themselves.

“He would certainly be able to make a major contribution here. Who wouldn’t want him at their football club?”

The Italian giants have agreed personal terms with the former West Ham and Manchester United attacker.

However, they have so far failed to convince City to hand him over on an initial six-month loan with an option to buy at the end of the campaign.

City, who haven’t used Tevez since September following a disagreement with boss Roberto Mancini, would rather sell him outright.

Paris Saint-Germain have also entered the race to sign the former Boca Juniors man.
