Former AC Milan attacker Roberto Baggio says Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez would be a ‘great’ addition to the Italian squad.

With the South American forward on the fringes at the Etihad Stadium after allegedly refusing to warm up against Bayern Munich in the Champions League back in September and then going back to Argentina without permission, a January move looks likely.

The Serie A holders’ vice-president, Adriano Galliani, revealed on Tuesday that the team had agreed terms with the 27-year-old over a possible loan move, with City’s approval all that was needed to complete the deal.

And now 44-year-old Baggio has welcomed the news, stating that Tevez’s potency in the final third would make him a valuable addition to Massimiliano Allegri’s squad.

“I got to know about him and appreciate his skills while he was still playing for Boca Juniors,” the ex-Italy international told Sky Sport Italia.

“He would be a great signing for Milan. He is a player who creates goals and also scores a lot himself.”

Milan are in the market for a new striker as cover for Antonio Cassano, who continues to recover from a heart problem.
