Galliani says Tevez is willing to take a major pay-cut to make the move.
â€śBetween yesterday and today I laid a few bricks to reinforce an already formidable squad,â€ť he told Milan Channel.
â€śIâ€™ve been in my office with Tevezâ€™s agent and the situation is clear. Milan have an agreement with the player and just now we sent a proposal to Manchester City: a free loan with right to buy at certain conditions.
â€śWhy should City accept that? He is not playing, heâ€™s a great player and if he does well with us then weâ€™ll buy him.
â€śThe player is giving up a mountain of money. He had enormous bonuses with City for the Premiership and Champions League.
â€śI spoke to Carlitos and he wants to join us. Half the agreement is complete, now we await Cityâ€™s response.
â€śIf Tevez arrives, itâ€™d be a new champion for all of Italian football to enjoy. We are close, the player was fantastic for the economic sacrifices he made and his great desire to come to Milan.
â€śI hope City say yes, as I managed to beat away some threats from Italy and Europe, but I cannot tell you who... We are in Pole Position.â€ť
