Galliani: 'We'll wait for Tevez'

Adriano Galliani reveals Milan won’t sign Maxi Lopez. “I made a promise to Carlitos Tevez that we’ll wait for him until January 31.”

The Rossoneri have been in negotiations with both players, but Manchester City have refused to release Tevez on loan without a mandatory buy-out clause.

“Will Tevez be a Christmas present for the fans? It’s tough in a period of economic difficulty, but we will try to keep the supporters happy,” Vice-President Galliani told Sky Sport Italia.

“Maxi Lopez? Catania have been very kind and open, but I made a promise to Carlitos that we’ll wait for him until January 31.

“If Tevez does not arrive, then we will stay as we are.”

However, Pippo Inzaghi is likely to move on in the January transfer window.

“Pippo’s dream is to set the record for European goals. He’ll try to achieve that either with Milan or another club in the Europa League.”
