Berlusconi: Tevez can be Europe's best
AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi believes Carlos Tevez would win the Ballon d'Or if he moved to the San Siro and urged the Argentinian to chose the Rossoneri over Paris Saint Germain.
Tevez, 27, wants to leave Manchester City and the club are looking to sell their striker but are holding out for a "fair market price" - thought to be around €35 million.
City have already rejected one approach from Milan, who wanted to take Tevez on loan until the end of the season before signing him for €25 million, with Rossoneri vice president Adriano Gailliani insisting on Wednesday that there would not be a second bid.
However, Berlusconi is still keen to bring Tevez to Serie A and says that he would have more chance flourishing at Milan than at big-spending PSG, who have also been heavily linked with a move for the former Manchester United frontman but have yet to make an official offer.
"If he comes with us, he will win the Ballon d'Or award,'' Berlusconi told Gazzetta dello Sport. "Tevez has two options, one which regards prestige and the other one money.
"Milan is prestige and he would have the possibility to showcase his talent around the world and win the Ballon d'Or with us. PSG represents a strong economic force. He must choose between one or the other.''
Tevez will not get that choice unless the clubs meet City's valuation, while the player himself has recently stated that he wishes to return to former club Boca Juniors.
