AC Milan chiefs insist Man City talks ongoing over Tevez

AC Milan insist talks with Manchester City are continuing over Carlos Tevez.

AC Milan insist talks with Manchester City are continuing over Carlos Tevez.

Reports in Italy have claimed Milan's city rivals Inter could make a late move for Tevez, but Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists the deal to sign the forward is still very much alive.

"The negotiations are very much alive," said Galliani. "Manchester insist on a loan with an obligation to buy and we insist on a loan with the right to buy."

AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri refused to be drawn on the club's pursuit of Tevez claiming the move is not a priority.

"I don't know," said Allegri. "It's still too early to say, but Milan already has other stronger strikers and so we are not looking at the moment."
