AC Milan owner Adriano Galliani must be a stubborn old fella. Despite high wages, high transfer fees and Man City’s complete reluctance to play ball it appears the club have not yet given up hopes of signing Tevez.
The deal, that was first mooted around the same time the first caveman (who incidentally Carlos bears an uncanny resemblance) discovered fire, may finally be taking a step forward.
After pulling out of discussions last month, The Sun carries quotes from Galliani now saying, “Tevez wants Milan? We also want Tevez”,
“We shall see, there are still seven days left until the end of the transfer window.”
But Man City may have to make a decision soon, as the AC owner also announced that if the Tevez deal was not completed they have Catania’s Maxi Lopez is waiting in the wings, Medical and negotiations already completed.
Lopez may not be as big a name as Tevez, but he is by no means a step down, and his impressive performance this season have also drawn the attention of Fulham. With his arrival AC will no longer see the immediacy of the Tevez deal.
It continues to perplex many as to why City hold desperately on to a player they have clearly do not want, and who most fans hold in disdain. They have deals ready-and-waiting that would take him far away from any Prem rivals, and make the striker Italy’s problem. City’s hard-ball approach may well have gained them a few extra million in any deal, but surely now is the time to cut their losses, If for no other reason than this transfer is getting tiresome for all concerned.
