AC Milan players do not want the club to sign Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez as they believe they already have sufficient attacking talent.
Tevez has been linked with a switch to San Siro this summer as he heads for the exit door at Etihad Stadium, though one man is hoping that does not happen.
Ignazio Abate claims AC Milan have no need for the Argentine in their squad owing to the abundance of attacking talent already there.
“We don't need to sign Tevez,” he said while away with Italy at the Confederations Cup.
“We have other great attackers, like (Giampaolo) Pazzini, who could not play much due to injury but when he did he was very good."
Tevez is going into the final year of his deal with Manchester City and they are yet to agree an extension.
This uncertainty has led to reports that the 29-year-old would be leaving, with AC Milan’s Serie A rivals Juventus also reportedly interested in his signature after giving up on Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.
It is no the fist time Tevez has been linked with AC Milan, as he was reportedly very close to a move to Italy during his exile from the Etihad Stadium club two seasons ago.
