Galliani confident of Tevez capture

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has claimed the club are close to signing Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

The Argentine looks set to depart the Etihad Stadium following a turbulent four-year stay, which began with a controversial transfer from City’s local rivals Manchester United.

“Carlitos won’t betray me,” Galliani commented when asked about the possibility of a move, before allegedly showing reporters a text message from Tevez’s agent Kia Joorabchian.

“I like Carlitos a lot, because he’s a ‘nasty’ player. His wages? There will be no problems with Tevez.”

Tevez missed large chunks of the 2011-12 season after falling out with then-City manager Roberto Mancini over his refusal to come off the bench during a UEFA Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

However, the 29-year-old return from his self-imposed exile in Argentina to play a part in the club’s last-gasp Premier League title victory.

But his form – along with that of his attacking colleagues at City – dipped last term as they surrendered the title to United.

Tevez has scored 73 goals in 138 appearances for City since arriving in 2009 but, with just a year left on his contract, is expected to leave before the start of the 2013-14 campaign.
