thumbnail Hello,

Their managing director has gone on radio to deny claims that his side have approached the Eastlands club with a bid for their striker, who is battling to be fit for FA Cup final

Inter managing director Ernesto Paolillo has denied claims that his club have made an approach for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

It has been rumoured for a long time that Tevez was set to leave the club at the end of the season, with Roberto Mancini conceding earlier in the week that the Argentine international would be interested in a move to Serie A.

Mancini told Gazzetta dello Sport: “Carlos told us back in December that he wants to go to Italy, but if he changes his mind, I would be happy.”

And whilst his performances would make him a highly sought after player if he decided to leave, Paolillo has insisted that there has been no contact between the two clubs.

"Despite what the newspapers write, there is no contact whatsoever for Tevez," he told Radio CRC.

The Argentinean striker has had a successful season at Eastlands, scoring 19 valuable goals in 29 league games to help City secure Champions League football for the first time, whilst other strikers such as Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko have struggled.

But he has shown considerable apathy this season. The striker submitted a transfer request at the turn of the year and has been known to frequently travel home to Argentina to visit his family.

City are now guaranteed a place in the Champions League qualifiers next season, but if they are able to secure three points more than Arsenal from their last two games, they would qualify automatically for club football’s richest and most prestigious tournament.
