Inter set out Tevez 'loan' plan

Inter step up their bid for Carlos Tevez by setting a July 31 meeting to ask for the Manchester City star on loan.

Carlitos confirmed again this week he wants to leave Eastlands and is looking for a transfer in South America or in Europe.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, the Nerazzurri have hatched a new plan to get hold of the want-away striker.

Similar to the way Milan bought Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Barcelona a year ago, it would involve a year-long loan with mandatory buy-out clause at the end of the season.

A meeting is set for July 31, which is when Inter and Manchester City will face off for the Dublin Super Cup tournament.

The Nerazzurri had initially wanted to offer Samuel Eto'o or Wesley Sneijder as part of the deal, but appear to have changed their minds.

Both players want to stay at San Siro, so Inter could hand over the full €45m cash sum instead.

There is another option, as Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid are said to be keeping a close eye on the Tevez situation.
