Spurs rule out Tevez move as Berlusconi calls on Carlos to choose prestige

AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has stated that if Carlos Tevez has any ambition he will choose the Serie A giants above his other suitors.

The Scudetto holders are keen to sign the Argentina international after one to many controversies has Manchester City keen to see the back of the controversial forward.

Massimiliano Allegri’s team have offered to take Tevez on loan, but City have rejected this as they want to sell the striker and be done with him.

With big-spending Paris Saint Germain also admitting their interest in the South American, Berlusconi has stated that Tevez has a choice to make.

“AC Milan is a solution of prestige,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Tevez has to choose between the prestige that AC Milan represents, with the possibility of playing in one of the biggest clubs in the world and perhaps to win the Golden Ball, or the money of the Paris Saint Germain, led by Sheikh of Qatar.”

Meanwhile, a report in The Daily Mail indicated that Tottenham could emerge as surprise bidders for Tevez come January.

However Harry Redknapp has been quick to distance himself from a move for the South American.

“He is a special player, the type of player who could make the difference, but I wouldn’t think that’s a real possibility,” the Spurs boss admitted.

Finally, The Guardian indicate that Juventus have entered the bidding for Tevez’s signature, and are ready to offer £21 million to Manchester City for his services.
