According to the latest Italian reports, Milan have set a Friday deadline to sign Carlos Tevez or go for Plan B Maxi Lopez.
Adriano Galliani confirmed that negotiations were continuing with Manchester City , but that the Rossoneri would not sign both Tevez and Lopez in the January window.
“Milan and Manchester City have been continuing talks over the last few days and that includes today,” said transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio on Sky Sport Italia.
“The Citizens are trying to come towards the Rossoneri’s conditions. They are studying a new formula for the transfer.
“However, Galliani has set a deadline. Either by Friday Tevez arrives or they will register Maxi Lopez. They certainly won’t both arrive.”
Maxi Lopez is in a very strange situation, as he is in a Milan hotel room waiting for the call to have his medical.
The contract and transfer from Catania has already been agreed , but as Tevez is the first choice, he is in limbo.
