Galliani: Manchester City striker Tevez not a transfer target for AC Milan

The Rossoneri director has stressed that the Argentine forward - who is being tracked by Juventus - is not an option at this point unless they sell one of their current attackers
AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has insisted that the San Siro side are not interested in signing Manchester City attacker Carlos Tevez ahead of the 2013-14 campaign.

The Milan director recently hinted at a summer move for the Argentina international, but he has now made it clear that the Rossoneri have no intention to bring in an extra attacker until one of their current forwards leaves the club.

Goal understands Juventus have held fresh talks with Tevez's representatives in recent days and are close to agreeing personal terms, with Galliani aware he must sell before the club can bring in new talent.

"Tevez is not a transfer target for us. Before we will try to bring in new players, we will have to sell some of our own players first," Galliani told reporters.

"It's not a financial problem, but has to do with the amount of attackers we already have. At the moment, we already have seven players for just three positions.

"Our big transfer coup came in January when we signed Mario Balotelli from City. We will see if anything else happens."

The 29-year-old has angled for a move during much of his four-year spell at City, and has just 12 months left to run on his current deal.
