Senior Manchester City officials met their AC Milan counterparts on Thursday afternoon in a bid to establish some common ground over the transfer of Carlos Tevez.
The Serie A giants are keen for Tevez to join them but want that initial deal to be a loan, with a commitment to buy at the end of the season. However, City have made it clear they are not interested and would only be willing to do business over a straight transfer.
Acting Blues chief executive John MacBeath led the City delegation and was accompanied by football administration officer Brian Marwood at the talks, which took place in London.
