Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez will not be going to Inter Milan this summer because of his astronomical wage demands.

Internazionale’s sporting director Marco Branca bemoaned the ‘crazy’ transfer market that has seen his side pull out of the running for both Tevez and Alexis Sanchez.

The Serie A giants are looking to rebuild the sqaud that won the Champions League two seasons ago and to re-claim the league title they lost to AC Milan.

But Uefa’s new financial fair play rules coming into effect next season, Inter have to tighten their budget and can no longer afford to pay the big fees as well as huge wages.

“Tevez is a great player, a great character, but absolutely no,” Branca told BBC Sport. ”His salary means it is out of the question.

“The market is crazy at the moment and it is hard to compete. He is a great player but a move for him is out of the question.

“We have to organise our finances for the financial fair play rules in the next two years.

“We don’t have the same revenues from merchandise and match day as the English sides. We are looking for younger players now with great talent, who we can develop.

“Take [Udinese winger] Alexis Sanchez, a player we liked,” he added. “Manchester City raised their bid for him to €35 million plus a bonus, which ruled us out of the race.

“In the end, the player preferred to go to Barcelona and they got him for €28 million and a €10 million bonus. Not many clubs can afford that.”
