Carlos Tevez would rather play for Inter Milan than Real Madrid next season after being linked to both clubs.
"Better Inter than Real," Tevez was quoted as saying in Tuesday's Gazzetta dello Sport. "Inter is a great club. There is a real possibility that I will wear (Inter's) blue and black shirt next year."
Madrid and Inter are among clubs to have expressed interest in signing the 23-year-old Argentina striker from West Ham, and Tevez said he would feel comfortable in an Inter squad containing eight Argentine players.
"The Nerazzurri are an Argentine colony," Tevez said. "I wouldn't even have language problems."
Tevez, who is in Argentina's squad for the Copa America, moved to West Ham at the beginning of last season from Corinthians and helped the club avoid relegation from the Premier League.
The Premier League fined West Ham for acquiring Tevez after it was discovered his contract was owned by a third party, contravening the competition's rules.
