Seedorf feels Tevez is money-motivated

AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf has stated that he believes Carlos Tevez is motivated by money, as the Scudetto holders battle Paris Saint Germain for the Manchester City striker’s signature.

The Argentina international’s time at the Etihad Stadium is over after one too many controversies, and Roberto Mancini’s men are keen to offload the South American in the January transfer window.

Milan have had a loan bid for the forward rejected, whilst PSG director Leonardo has confirmed that the big-spending Ligue 1 club are interested in the want-away attacker.

With a choice for Tevez and his representatives to make, Seedorf feels the Argentine has a history of following the money.

“Looking back at his career, his agents and every move he has ever made, I think Tevez will go where they can promise him the most money,” the Dutchman told Sky Sport Italia.

“Milan would be the first time in his life that he has chosen a club for his career rather than the money. We’ll see what happens.”

City have not confirmed any concrete offers for Tevez as yet, and his European suitors will also have to contend with South American duo Boca Juniors and Corinthians, who also are keen to sign the 27-year-old.
