LEONARDO include Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez at the top of the list of players aim. However, the Brazilian coach was in no hurry to bring Tevez to the Giuseppe Meazza, Inter headquarters.
Based on talkSPORT claims, the new Leonardo cast a bid for Argentina's national team striker in the transfer market early next season. Currently, he is still relying on Diego Milito, Samuel Eto'o, and Goran Pandev.
Leonardo's desire is in line with Inter owner Massimo Moratti. To get Tevez, they were ready poured huge funds plus Samuel Eto'o as a medium of exchange. They realize it is difficult for the City to get Tevez without the lure Eto'o.
Leonardo consideration now that 29-year-old Eto'o. Although still under contract until 2014, but Leonardo rate this a good opportunity to get a striker who is young and powerful for front-line Inter.
Moreover, Eto? o has been linked with City. It seems that the Cameroon striker also does have ambitions to play in the Premier League club. Eto'o never felt the defending champions Barcelona in the Primera Liga and the Scudetto with Inter.
