Same old story: Manchester City want to be rid of Carlos Tevez. AC Milan want his services, but only on loan.

Carlos Tevez is the saga that just refuses to die. It's clear that he wants away from Manchester City, and it's obvious he'll never play there again. Yet City also have enough money that they can afford to ignore the pouting Carlitos while they ensure they extract precisely the right terms from a club looking to buy.

Enter AC Milan. The rossoneri had agreed to personal terms with Tevez, but Manchester City didn't bite at the proposed offer. Milan want the forward on loan; City want him out of their hair, their thoughts, and their kits forever. And so the two clubs met in London, attempting to see eye to eye -- although they only got as far as agreeing to resume talks after Christmas.

Milan feel they need Tevez to replace Antonio Cassano, whose status is indefinite after undergoing heart surgery. Apparently a mix of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexandre Pato, and Robinho up front, with the threats of on-fire Antonio Nocerino, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Clarence Seedorf and Alberto Aquilani in midfield, just isn't enough for table-topping Milan.
