Maybe he'll get his wish after all. Carlos Tevez could be on his way to AC Milan after his resounding "Non" to recent suitors Paris St Germain.
They claim: "The Scudetto holders have reached an agreement with Catania for Lopez, thought to be an initial six-month loan deal worth €500,000, with the option to buy the forward outright in the summer for €8.5 million.
"However, they will only sign the former Barcelona striker if they fail to land Tevez."
Here's what Galliani is saying: "If Maxi Lopez can join as well, who knows?
If he does not arrive, we will sign Tevez, but they are two alternative options. We will make a decision on Friday
But it will be a case of either or. Milan director Ariedo Braida is quoted: "On Friday we will choose either Lopez or Tevez. Maxi has been very nice, but we will see. Either he stays at Catania or he comes to us.”
So no point in starting to learn Italian just yet, Carlos ...
They report: "The 20-year-old impressed on trial at City, and he could be joining the club on loan until the end of the season, with view to a permanent move.
"Ashdod owner Jacky Ben Zaken told the Jewish Chronicle: 'They want to take him on loan immediately and want an option to buy him in the future.'
"City aren't the only club to have taken an interest in Biton, with Everton and Aston Villa also watching him in recent weeks."
