Will Carlos Tevez finally leave the Etihad Stadium?
AC Milan insist talks regarding a move for Carlos Tevez remain ongoing, but are adamant they will not bow to Manchester City’s demands.
Negotiations between City and Milan have been ongoing for several weeks, with the main sticking point being the Italian side’s desire to take the player on-loan as opposed to the Premier League outfit’s determination to sell him.
Milan would like to agree a loan move with the right to make the arrangement permanent next summer, while City want a deal in place to ensure the move becomes permanent at the end of any loan.
Reports in Italy have claimed Milan’s city rivals Inter could make a late move for Tevez, but Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists the deal to sign Tevez is still very much alive.
“The negotiations are very much alive,” said Galliani. “Manchester insist on a loan with an obligation to buy and we insist on a loan with the right to buy.”

Once upon a time, Carlos Tevez used to play football.
If you would indulge me the task of continuing to jog your memory, he used to be a highly popular one for Manchester City – who was really rather good.
Despite regularly making outrageously innumerate claims about the number of restaurants in Manchester and slandering the city, his team’s supporters showed remarkable loyalty towards Tevez.
After allegedly refusing to appear as a substitute in the UEFA Champions League against Bayern Munich, Tevez assigned himself a break, and has hardly been seen since.
Still, reports today suggest that AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani still believes Tevez can remember what football is.
He hopes to recruit him to liven up the notoriously shy-and-retiring Rossoneri dressing room, featuring the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho, Kevin Prince Boateng and Antonio Cassano.
It is thought that Galliani has travelled to Brazil to meet with Tevez’s super-agent Kia Joorabchian to conclude the deal.
