Catania chief Pietro Lo Monaco insists no deal has been agreed with AC Milan over Maxi Lopez.

The Argentine striker is expected to join Milan in January.

But Lo Monaco says: "We know nothing, there are always the same talks. Catania's position is clear and everyone knows what it is.

"We [Adriano Galliani and Lo Monaco] are together at the Lega and we speak about a lot of things, also about Maxi Lopez, yes. Meetings with Milan? I do not know, nothing is planned.

"Would I recommend Galliani to buy Maxi? Giving advice to Galliani is the last thing I can do, as he is the most successful CEO in Italy. I can only say that Maxi is an important player, young and is a good prospect.

"Tevez? I honestly do not know what the Milan's strategies are. Tevez is a great player, but is of a significant cost and he cannot play in the Champions League this season. Milan already have important players up-front."
