AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani remains hopeful the club can agree a loan deal for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez despite reported interest from Paris St Germain.

Galliani on Monday night announced the Italian giants had made an offer to City to take the Argentinian on loan in January with a firm option to buy next summer.

Galliani was quoted as telling Sky Italia: "We know City's desire is to the sell the player, our proposal is to loan him and hope City say yes. I'm neither optimistic nor pessimistic. I can certainly say the player would prefer to be at Milan but you have to convince City to send him out on loan and that's not easy."

City have not formally acknowledged they have received an offer, but manager Roberto Mancini said after Wednesday night's Champions League game against Bayern Munich the club do not want to let the 27-year-old leave on loan.

Tevez is currently in his native Argentina having flown home without City's permission a month ago.

His representatives have been speaking to officials at Milan about a possible move over the last fortnight.

Those productive talks resulted in Galliani announcing Milan's intentions on Monday but there has been no suggestion from City a deal is imminent.
