Juventus striker Carlos Tevez has dismissed speculation that he is looking to leave Juventus at the end of the campaign. The Argentine striker has been playing in the Italian Serie A since 2013 after his £ 10 million move from Manchester City. He won the league title in his first season at the club, which was also the third consecutive time that the Italian giants have managed to win the title. As they go in search of a fourth consecutive title, Tevez helped them to a 1-0 win over AC Milan. Ahead of the match, the former Argentina international said that Milan should be considered as one of the title favourites after the great start to the season.
Playing in front of a pack the San Siro, Tevez managed to get a goal that turned out to be the only goal in the match in the 71st minute. This victory not only preserves the 100% start to the season, but they are also level on points with Roma who managed to win their match against Cagliari. Tevez still has 24 months left on his contract, but that has been suggestions that he would end the contract on mutual consent in favour of a return to his homeland. The striker has dismissed the speculation by saying that he intends to honour his three-year contract.
“Serie A is full of big players and it remains one of the most difficult leagues in the world. Absolutely, yes [will stay until 2016]. Allegri is a tranquil, intelligent person, a coach who knows a lot about football. He immediately commanded respect in the dressing room. Conte wanted me closer to the goal, Allegri asks me to diversity,” said Tevez after the win over Milan. Juventus’ next match is at home against Cesena while Roma are against Parma.

Former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has stated that Juventus should not allow midfielder Arturo Vidal to join the Red Devils. United have been linked with a move for the Chilean midfielder throughout the summer. They are expected to come in with a £ 45 million offer for the 27-year-old. This would be hard to resist for Juventus, who may be Italian champions for three years in a row but do not have the finances to compete against top clubs from Europe. Real Madrid have also been linked with an offer for the midfielder, but they are understood to have withdrawn their interest.
Chile’s national team manager Sampaoli recently said that United manager Louis van Gaal was reportedly concerned about the knee injuries suffered by Vidal in the last few years. However, it is widely expected that a move will be finalised before the end of the window. Tevez, who moved to Juventus in a £ 10 million deal from Manchester City in 2013, says that the presence of Vidal is extremely important to the club’s Champions League ambitions. After being immensely successful once again in the domestic competitions, Juventus’ main ambition now is to lift the Champions League title.
The clubs last success the competition came in 1996. Since then, they have not lifted any major European title. Last season, they were knocked out of the group stages of the Champions League.
“Vidal’s phenomenal and a real champion. I hope he stays here because we can’t afford to let our champions leave. I’m delighted with Evra’s arrival – he’s a great friend of mine. Let’s now wait and see when we have our full squad what objectives we can set ourselves this season in Serie A and the Champions League,” said the Argentine striker about Vidal and the arrival of Patrice Evra.
