AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani was locked in talks with Manchester City yesterday.

La Stampa says Galliani was successfully rebuilding Milan's relationship with City, which had deteriorated over the Carlos Tevez affair.

Galliani will make a final attempt to land Tevez - behind closed doors - in a phone hook-up with City officials today.

The Milan vice-president is also encouraged by talks with Mino Raiola, the agent of Mario Balotelli, who will emerge as a top summer target for the Rossoneri.
