AC Milan admit Tevez too rich for them

AC Milan insist they don't have the finances to move for Manchester City's wantaway striker Carlos Tevez. Robinho made a big-money move to the Italian giants in the summer after the Brazilian striker failed to settle at City and Milan are on the look-out for another new forward in January after Filippo Inzaghi was ruled out for the season through injury.

Tevez has had a transfer request turned down by City, but Milan's chief executive Adriano Galliani admits the Serie A leaders would be unable to finance a similar swoop for the Argentinian star should City be willing to sell.

"Tevez is great but Milan can't make an investment like that," he said.

"If we find a forward who looks like a Milan player we will take him, otherwise we'll stay like this."
