Inter have confirmed that they have ended their interest in signing Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, as transfer negotiations have broken down.
The Argentina international is on his way out of the Etihad Stadium after numerous controversies and disciplinary actions, with both Inter, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain eager to sign the attacker.
Milan walked away from negotiations recently after failing to meet City’s £30million-plus valuation, and Inter now appear to have followed suit.
“Now we’re no longer interested in Tevez. He is following a different path,” board member Marco Tronchetti Provera told Ansa.
“Inter have recovered their champions and there is no need to have him or another, even if Tevez remains a great champion.”
With less than a week left in the transfer window Tevez’s options are running out, as PSG are the only known bidder left for the South American’s services.
The inability to find a solution is also hurting Tevez personally, as City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has also confirmed that the player is not being paid whilst he is AWOL back in his homeland.
