AC Milan has agreed terms with Carlos Tevez and is waiting to hear back from Manchester City about its latest offer for the Argentine forward.
Milan chief executive, Adriano Galliani revealed the news when asked by journalists whether or not Brazilian forward Alexandre Pato is for sale.
"We are not negotiating the sale of Pato, I have an agreement with Tevez but not with City," he said.
Galliani said he had sent an "imaginative" offer to City which the Italian press claim consists of a loan until the end of the season with an obligation to buy, under set conditions, in the summer.
However, City has already rejected a previous offer from Milan to borrow the player, claiming it will only sell him outright.
Italian press claimed Inter Milan has entered the bidding by offering €25 million for the 27-year-old.
Both of those bids, however, are believed to be well below the €35 million French league leaders, Paris St Germain has allegedly offered.
