Milan clubs fight for Tevez

The Milan derby for the signature of Carlos Tevez is heating up after Inter are said to have agreed a deal with Manchester City, but the player wants the Rossoneri.

While Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani met the striker and his agent in Rio on Thursday, Nerazzurri official Marco Branca was in London talking to the English club.

According to reports in Italy this morning, Inter made a successful €25m offer to the Premiership giants for the South American.

However, it’s unclear whether they will agree personal terms with Tevez seeing as he already has a deal with their San Siro rivals.

Nevertheless, a move to the Italian champions has yet to be completed because Milan and City have still not reached a compromise.

While City want to sell outright, Milan are pushing for a loan move with the option to buy at the end of the season.

According to whispers, Galliani has now tweaked the club’s offer in two possible ways.

One option is that Milan would be forced to sign Tevez if he plays in at least 50 per cent of the club’s remaining games this season.

Another possibility is that the Italian outfit will be obliged to hand over €24m to City should they sell Robinho or Alexandre Pato to another team before the end of August.
