Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez is set for a move to Italy to sign for AC Milan in a £10m deal, reports The Mirror. 

According to Italian press, the move will be confirmed in the coming weeks with Tevez making the move to the San Siro to join former Citizens star, Mario Balotelli. 

Tevez has been linked with a move to Italy all summer, with Juventus also interested in signing the former Boca Juniors man. But it is AC Milan who look like they have won the race for his signature. 

City want to sell Tevez because the Argentine has only one year left on his current deal, meaning that City would risk losing the striker on a free transfer next year after paying over £30m for Tevez in 2009. 

And it seems that new manager Manuel Pellegrini is powerless as to the transfer situation around Tevez because he is not due to meet the players until the first week of July, by which time Tevez will have reportedly left the club. 

Despite Tevez's imminent departure, City will hope to replace him with Napoli's Uruaguyan striker Edinson Cavani, who has been the subject of a transfer tug-of-war between City, Chelsea and Real Madrid all summer. The striker is currently away on international duty, playing in the Confederations Cup with Uruguay. 

But it looks like City may miss out on the prized striker after Cavani stated that Spain would be his preferred destination, all but ruling out a move to the Premier League.
