Catania admit Maxi Lopez is likely to be sold next month.

AC Milan are favourites to land the Argentine striker.

"There is a 90 per cent chance that Maxi Lopez will leave," Catania director Pietro Lo Monaco noted on Monday to Radio Anch'io Lo Sport.

"There is already an agreement in place with Milan, but we are also in possession of other offers for him.

"To give Milan one of our players is something to be proud of.

"We, as a small club, will just have to deal with anything that happens."
