Inter remain interested in Tevez

Inter Milan director Marco Branca insists the club remain interested in Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, but admits Paris Saint Germain are now most likely to win his signature.

• Ancelotti wants Tevez
• Tevez deal to go to the wire

The saga over the player's future, who remains AWOL in Argentina having refused to return to training with City after serving a club-imposed two-week suspension, has already taken several twists and turns throughout the January window.

After being in pole position, AC Milan now seem least likely to capture Tevez, but few would be prepared to bet on where he will be on February 1.

"I think that Tevez is in reality close to Paris Saint-Germain, as his agent received a very good offer from the French club," Branca told RMC Sport. "In any case, I am not optimistic or pessimistic with regards to Tevez. We are still interested and will continue discussing matters with his agent.

"We are studying how to get back into the hunt for Carlos over the next few days. We are not running late in this race. I believe Carlos and his agent can wait a day or two, seeing as he hasn't played for Manchester City for several months.

"It's not as if the situation will change over the next 48 hours. Besides, the transfer window certainly doesn't close tonight or tomorrow."

Milan pulled out of the race after Alexandre Pato turned down the chance to move to PSG. But Pato has been ruled out for up to four weeks with a left thigh muscle injury.

The Brazilian picked up the injury in the Coppa Italia win over Novara, in which he scored the extra-time winner to earn a 2-1 win.

A statement on Milan's official website read: "The prognosis is three to four weeks, unless there are complications.''
