Manchester City chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak has warned AC Milan they will not allow Carlos Tevez to leave on the cheap just to bring an end to a long-running saga that has so far cost the controversial striker £9.3million.

Although Paris St Germain and Inter Milan have both expressed an interest in signing Tevez, the 27-year-old would prefer to join AC Milan. Yet the seven-time European Cup winners have failed to come up with a suitable offer, their last bid of 25 million euros (£20.9million) turned down two weeks ago as it is believed City want at least £25million the player.

"As things stand, AC Milan is not an option for Carlos Tevez," Khaldoon told the Abu Dhabi-based newspaper The National.
