Tevez makes contact with Man City as part of AC Milan phone hook-up

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has held face-to-face talks with Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez.

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has held face-to-face talks with Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez.

The Guardian says Galliani had lunch with Tevez and the player's adviser Kia Joorabchian in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday but while the Rossoneri believe they are the player's preferred destination, they are yet to reach agreement with City on a deal and Inter have now reportedly registered a bid of their own with the club.

Inter's technical director Marco Branca is understood to have met the City director Brian Marwood on Thursday, submitting an offer to take the player on loan until the end of the season and then make the deal permanent for €25m (£20.6m) in the summer. Milan have also been in contact with City, with the club's chief executive John MacBeath joining Galliani, Tevez and Joorabchian on a conference call on Thursday to discuss the details of a possible deal.
