Carlos Tevez set for PSG talks

Carlos Tevez’s adviser Kia Joorabchian is set for talks with French side Paris Saint-Germain on Friday over a possible transfer, according to The Telegraph.

The Argentina international is currently back in his homeland after going AWOL from Manchester City training; this was the last straw for the Etihad Stadium club, who are now eager to offload the South American in January.

AC Milan and Inter have been the frontrunners for the attacker’s signature, and it is believed that Claudio Ranieri’s men still hold out hope of meeting City’s asking price for Tevez and bringing him to Italy.

Scudetto holders Milan meanwhile have dropped their interest in Tevez for the time being, as they were eager to secure his services on a loan basis but the Premier League leaders would prefer an outright sale.

Milan and PSG’s pursuit of Tevez has changed recently as Alexandre Pato turned down a move to Carlo Ancelotti’s side, which has sparked a revitalised interest from the Ligue 1 leaders.

The Telegraph state that talks will begin on Friday, with City looking to recoup around £30 million in selling Tevez.

PSG are backed by the Qatari Investment Authority, and paid a similar price to secure the services of Tevez’s countryman Javier Pastore in the summer.
