AC Milan have struck terms with Catania for striker Maxi Lopez. Sky Italia says Milan have agreed a deal with Catania over a six-month loan for Maxi with the view to signing him permanently in June.

Only last night, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani declared any signing they'd make in January would be "a free loan".

It's claimed Milan have had an agreement over Maxi with Catania for the past ten days.
