Sky Sports has today revealed Juventus have lodged a sensational £45m bid to offer Manchester City skipper, Carlos Tevez away out of the Etihad Stadium and will hope to tempt the hit man to stay in Europe.
The news has emerged not from either club, but from Corinthians president Andres Sanchez, whom has seen his £35m offer for Tevez rejected, but has insisted the offer stands and will not be upped as he indicated he is confident the Argentine powerhouse would favour a move to South America.
“They have a proposal for €52million (£45million) from Juventus, but Tevez does not want to stay in Europe. He also added, he has until early next year to decide.”
Pointing out their offer would remain on the table until January.
If Carlos Tevez was to reconsider his future, which appears highly unlikely due to his family circumstances, then this potential MASSIVE summer signing for Juventus would certainly bolster their firepower and send a message out to the rest of Europe as they attempt to reinstate their once galactico presence on footballs world stage.
The bianconeri have certainly been a shadow of themselves in previous years and are looking to rebuild a team that is ready to once again cut it at the top level.
Serie A or the Premiership? It makes no difference. If Tevez’s ambition is to ply his trade and be close to his children, then you have to believe he will hold on for City to agree terms with a club closer to home.
The case continues…
