AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits their move for Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez is off.

Milan pulled out of the deal after Alexandre Pato chose to reject a move to PSG.

"Pato decided to stay, so we have given up on Tevez. He won't be coming to Milan," Galliani told Sky Sport Italia at the Linate Airport.

"The two transfer operations were linked and all of them had various clauses. I believe in fate and remember that when Gianluca Vialli said no, then we brought in Marco Van Basten. If Pato wants to remain, then we hope he will do well with Milan.

"We have the utmost faith in the strikers at our disposal, also trusting in Antonio Cassano's swift return, as he will become our big new signing."
