thumbnail Hello,

The clubs are reportedly close to agreeing a January loan move, and the 44-year-old believes the controversial Argentine would be an excellent addition to the Rossoneri squad

Former AC Milan attacker Roberto Baggio has stated that Manchester City's Carlos Tevez would be a "great" addition to the Giuseppe Meazza side's squad.

With the South American forward on the fringes at the Etihad Stadium after allegedly refusing to warm up against Bayern Munich in the Champions League back in September and then going back to Argentina without permission, a January move looks likely.

The Scudetto holders' vice president, Adriano Galliani, yesterday revealed that the Serie A outfit had agreed terms with the 27-year-old over a possible loan move, with City's approval all that was needed to complete the deal.

And now 44-year-old Baggio has welcomed the news, stating that Tevez's potency in the final third would make him a valuable addition to Massimiliano Allegri's squad.

“I got to know about him and appreciate his skills while he was still playing for Boca Juniors," the ex-Italy international told Sky Sport Italia.

"He would be a great signing for Milan. He is a player who creates goals and also scores a lot himself.”

Milan are in the market for a new striker as cover for Antonio Cassano, who continues to recover from a heart problem.
