AC Milan have been warned that they may face competition from other Italian clubs for the signature of Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez in January.
The Argentinian is wanted by the Rossoneri as a replacement for Antonio Cassano, with Milan 5/6 with bookmaker to retain their Serie A title this season.
After Milan were granted permission by City to speak to Tevez’s representative, Kia Joorabchian warned: “Milan is a great club, but there are other Italian clubs that have also requested information.”
Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani, whose club are only interested in a loan deal for Tevez, told the Gazzetta dello Sport: “We don’t know what City want and I prefer not to speak too much about Tevez, otherwise his price will go up and this is not good.”
Serie A leaders Juventus and Inter Milan are also showing an interest in Tevez, who is keen to remain in Europe rather than return home to South America.
