Inter Milan president Moratti flew into Dublin for Tevez talks with Man City

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti stepped up talks over Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez on the weekend.

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti stepped up talks over Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez on the weekend.

Hours before City's friendly win over Inter in Dublin, Moratti flew into Ireland to meet with City manager Roberto Mancini to intensify negotiations for Tevez, says Mediaset.

Moratti has no intention of including Samuel Eto'o in the deal and instead is proposing a free loan - with Inter covering Tevez's wages - and signing the Argentina international permanently in 12 months' time.

Inter are willing to run down the clock to get the best price for Tevez and won't consider going higher than €25 million should City insist on an immediate sale.

Moratti is convinced Inter can win back the Scudetto with a new attacking trio of Eto'o, Tevez and Giampaolo Pazzini.
