AC Milan's Galliani still 'in love' with Tevez

The Rossoneri tried to sign the Argentina international in January butdespite the player's willingness to come to San Siro, an agreement was never reached with his club

AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has admitted that he remains enamoured with Carlos Tevez and views the Manchester City striker as the one that got away.

The Rossoneri did their utmost to land the Argentina international during the January transfer window but they were unable to agree a deal with the Premier League outfit.

Galliani is still bitterly disappointed that the proposed transfer did not come off, citing the player's decisive contribution in Manchester City's crucial 2-1 victory over Chelsea at Eastlands on Wednesday night as proof of his enduring class.

"He's like this," the Italian told reporters on Thursday. "We're talking about a great player; one who can make a difference.

"I'm crazy for Carlitos. It took him only a few minutes to decide a game that could be the turning point of the season for City.

"I'm in love with him. He is a fantastic player. Fate, however, did not want him with us. And some trains do not pass by a second time."

However, Galliani is taking great consolation out of the fact that Antonio Cassano, who underwent emergency heart surgery last November, is nearing a return to first-team action.

"All the feedback is positive; the tests are good," he enthused. "Now we just have to wait, but I'm very optimistic."

Galliani also took time out to dismiss reports that he has held talks with former Rossoneri forward Marco van Basten about replacing Massimiliano Allegri as coach.

"I have never spoken about this with Van Basten," he stated. "Allegri's doing very well and has just renewed for another two years.

"Allegri will remain as Milan coach for many more seasons. At the moment, the last thing we want to do is change the coach."

Milan are currently top of Serie A and will be looking to extend their advantage when they host Roma at San Siro on Saturday night.
