Carlos Tevez could swap the Etihad Stadium for Turin.
Juventus sporting director Beppe Marotta has hinted the club are interested in a deal for Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez this summer, as the Serie A Champions look to bolster their squad for a Champions League run next season.
The Argentine striker has a year remaining on his contract at Eastlands, and has already admitted that a move away from City is possible, with PSG and Monaco also thought to be keen on the former West Ham and Manchester United star.
Marotta has admitted an interest in both Tevez and his compatriot Gonzalo Higuain of Real Madrid, but says a deal for the City star may well prove easier to complete.
“I have to say that Higuain is a bit younger and has a higher market value. Tevez on the other hand has a year left on his contract so maybe between the two, the Tevez deal is easier,” Mariotta explained.
“We are not the first to notice his quality and experience. He is a player with a big desire to rebuild his career.
“Nevertheless, he is owned by City and we have made no approach to them. It is obvious that even in the event of an agreement with the player, the club still has an important say.”
Tevez has scored 11 goals this season but has avoided further controversy, having been involved in a number of run-ins with the club’s management since he moved to City in 2009.
If Tevez were to depart, it would leave just Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko as the only first-team strikers left at the club and bringing in at least two top forwards would be the key priority for the incoming manager.
