Milan hopeful over Tevez loan
Adriano Galliani remains hopeful AC Milan can agree to a loan deal for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, despite reported interest from Paris St Germain.
Galliani, Milan's vice president, on Monday night announced the Italian giants had made an offer to City to take the Argentinian on loan in January with an option to buy next summer. City have not formally acknowledged the offer, but manager Roberto Mancini has since said the club do not want to let the 27-year-old leave on loan.
PSG are now also linked with a move for Tevez, and although Galliani claims he is aware of interest from the Ligue 1 big spenders, he still has hopes of bringing the player to the San Siro.
"Yes it's true, PSG are also in the running although I haven't heard from (their sporting director) Leonardo," Galliani was quoted as telling Sky Italia.
"We know City's desire is to the sell the player, our proposal is to loan him and hope City say yes.
"I'm neither optimistic nor pessimistic. I can certainly say the player would prefer to be at Milan but you have to convince City to send him out on loan and that's not easy."
