Carlos Tevez to sign with AC Milan?

11:12 am on 6 January 2012

The Argentine footballer Carlos Tevez looks set to snub interest from Inter Milan to join bitter rivals AC Milan.

While Inter's technical director, Marco Branca, travelled to England to meet Manchester City officials on Thursday, Joorabchian held talks with Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani in Rio.

Joorabchian says he is hoping to come to an agreement with Milan rather than Inter.

Following a telephone conference call involving Tevez, Galliani, Joorabchian (all of whom were in Rio) and City, the agent says he's confident that Milan and Manchester City will come to an agreement soon.

Italian media claim Tevez has already found a home in Milan - close to the La Scala Opera House - and that City will give Milan an answer next week.

Galliani is said to have described the offer made to the Premier League leaders as "fantastic".

However the Milan neighbours are not the only ones keeping tabs on Tevez, as French league leaders Paris Saint-Germain are also believed to be interested in the 27-year-old.
