London: Carlos Tevez has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to AC Milan and insists he is now settled at Manchester City under Roberto Mancini.
The striker came under fire from both fans and the Etihad Stadium hierarchy after seemingly refusing to come as a substitute during the club`s 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in September last year, and looked destined for the exit door following strong interest from the Serie A side in January.
But, after receiving a fine of six weeks` wages and apologizing to boss Mancini for the incident, Tevez played a key role in helping City claim its first league title for 44 years.
Reports have again linked the 28-year-old with a move to AC Milan this summer, but the striker has moved to quash the rumours, telling the club’s official website: "I have lots of different targets. I think that now I feel settled at the club and feel good in myself and am working hard.
“The main aim of every one of the players is to have as good a league campaign as possible and try to be champions again and also to get as far as we can in the Champions League."
However, AC Milan is thought to have made Tevez its top target after agreeing to sell talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic and center back Thiago Silva to Paris St. Germain in a deal worth a reported 47 million pounds.
