Maradona tells Tevez to move to Inter

ChelseaLondon, Jan 13 (IANS) Argentina coach Diego Maradona said that Carlos Tevez should consider leaving Manchester United and move to Italy with the Serie A champions Inter Milan.The 24-year-old Argentina forward’s future with the English and European champions is in doubt with his current two-year loan deal due to expire at the end of the season and Manchester United are no closer to paying the $47 million fee to secure his signature on a long-term contract.

“I saw Manchester United win (3-0 against Chelsea) without Tevez. This isn’t good for him,” Maradona was quoted as saying by Corriere dello Sport on Tuesday.

“Certain episodes are certainly bringing closer his exit. Italy and Inter in particular would be excellent solutions. What’s more, his contract is running out, which makes it easier to change team.”

Maradona, who is in Italy to watch Inter’s Coppa Italia tie against Genoa on Tuesday, said Atlético Madrid’s Argentina striker Sergio Agüero should also consider transferring to Inter. Agüero is in a relationship with Maradona’s daughter Giannina, who is expecting their first child next month.

“What advice would I give him? To come running to Inter. I can already imagine the extraordinary partnership he’d form with (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic.”
