Galliani also dismisses rumours that El Shaarawy will head in the other direction.
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has revealed he has been in contact with Manchester City regarding Carlos Tevez.
The Argentine is widely expected to quit the Etihad this summer, with a whole host of clubs interested in acquiring him including the likes of PSG and Monaco.
However, having failed in their bid to sign him back in January, it appears Milan have not yet given up hope of landing their man, while Galliani is confident that the striker would not sign for a Serie A rival this summer.
“Carlitos won’t betray me. I like Carlitos a lot, because he’s a “nasty” player. His wages? There will be no problems with Tevez,” he told journalists on Sunday as reported by football-italia.net.
Initial speculation suggested that City would offer Tevez in a cash plus player deal for Milan starlet Stephan El Shaarawy, with the club willing to part with up to €25m.
Elsewhere, there were reports that the Premier League outfit would be willing to spend up to €40m on the Italian international, but Galliani moved to dismiss talk that they are interested in selling their youngster.
“Who says that El Shaarawy will leave? He will not leave,” he added.
Rumours have also claimed that Chelsea are interested in signing Kevin-Prince Boateng this summer, but Galliani reassured fans that they have received no bids for the midfielder, although suggested that he would have to accept a positional change next season if he decides to stay.
It remains to be seen how negotiations unfold with Tevez, but at this stage it would appear that Milan are not interested in including El Shaarawy in any deal.
