Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez's hopes of getting a move to AC Milan are diminishing by the day.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani cancelled a scheduled meeting with City officials today and instead is flying to Brazil for his winter break.

City manager Roberto Mancini, meanwhile, insisted yesterday they would only consider selling Tevez outright and warned Milan they faced competition from PSG and Juventus for his services.

Mediaset says Milan are prepared to buy Tevez next month, but for no more than £18 million - which falls well short of City's valuation.
