Balotelli choose Milan when leaving the Etihad Stadium in January and he admitted trying to persuade his former colleague to follow suit.
He told Tuttosport: "Tevez is my friend and I told him to come to Milan, but he didn't listen and went to Juve instead.
"So he should understand where I'm coming from if I take the mick out of him on the pitch.
"But I'm not scared of Juve. I have respect for everybody but fear nobody."
