AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is set to fly to Argentina for talks with Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez. Milan want the forward, 27, to be available for their mid-winter training camp in Dubai in two weeks.

Vice-president Galliani is expected to arrive in England on Wednesday or Thursday in a bid to alter City's stance.

He said: "Let's hope sooner or later City change their minds.

"Negotiations are going to take a long time but we are playing a lot of emphasis on the fact he wants to play with us.

"It's true other sides are interested in him but there are not actually that many."
