After the Daily Mail reported that Paris Saint-Germain had agreed a fee with Manchester City for striker Carlos Tevez, director of football Leonardo confirmed the club’s interest.
He denied that a bid has been made but has expressed the Parisians desire to lure one of the biggest names in the game. However, the Brazilian did admit that the player’s preference is to join Italian giants AC Milan.
He told the Corriere della Serra; “PSG has not made a bid for Tevez, we have enquired. I spoke with the player’s agent, he told me that Carlitos preferred to go to Milan. But Manchester wants to sell and not loan. If City agree to loan Tevez then he goes to Milan, the case is closed. Otherwise the market is open.”
He then on to dismiss the move for Tevez as a way at getting back at his former employers; “The goal is not to inflict a blow to Milan. We are interested for quite some time. This is not a sudden twist.” he concluded.
