There are reports that Carlos Tevez’s agent told Inter “he only wants to play for Milan,” causing problems for Manchester City.
The Rossoneri agreed personal terms with the Argentine last month, but City have so far rejected their offer to take the striker on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.
Inter have dived into the race and started negotiations with Manchester City on Monday, but Italian media suggest a battle is brewing.
“Carlos told me he only wants to play alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Milan,” agent Kia Joorabchian is said to have told Nerazzurri director Marco Branca.
