Italian champions AC Milan are still waiting for a response from Manchester City over their latest offer for Argentine striker Carlos Tevez.
Milan CEO Adriano Galliani revealed last weekend that the Rossoneri have already agreed personal terms with Tevez, and that they had made a loan proposal with the right to purchase the striker at the end of the stint.
However, Goal.com can reveal that the Serie A giants have yet to hear back from the Europa League hopefuls, and Milan will not plan their move until they have received a response from City.
Milan face stiff competition in the race for Tevez's services from arch-rivals Inter, who are known to have made a big-money bid for a permanent deal, but Galliani refuses to be rushed into his next move by his city rivals' offer.
The Rossoneri executive will await a reply from City first, before looking into the details of Inter's bid for the striker, and only then will he eventually table a new offer if required.
As long as Milan haven't heard anything from the Etihad Stadium, they remain confident of luring Tevez to San Siro despite Inter's attempts to sign the forward, as they feel they hold an advantage over the Nerazzurri because of their personal agreement with the 27-year-old.
