French club have been heavily recruiting of late ahead of their top-flight return.
Big-spending Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco have denied that they are interested in signing Manchester City front man Carlos Tevez this summer, reports ESPN.
The Argentina international has been at Eastlands for four years now, having signed for the mega-rich Premier League club from city rivals Manchester Unite for a whopping £47 million in July 2009.
However, it is fair to say that in the intervening four-year period, the 29-year-old has endured a turbulent, and at times controversial, stay in the north west.
Tevez, though, only has a contract with City until June 30 2014 and so the club will be keen for the player, who scored 11 Premier League goals in 28 outings last season, to either put pen to paper on a new contract, or to depart this summer rather than them risk losing the striker on a free next year.
But, the newly-promoted Ligue 1 side have now come out to deny any knowledge of wanting to bring Tevez to the South of France this summer, with sporting director Vadim Vasilyev telling RMC radio: “We’re not in talks. A lot of newspapers are talking about that, but that case has never been discussed.”
