AC Milan have denied opening talks with Paris St Germain over their Brazilian forward Alexandre Pato.
Pato has been linked with a move to the French Ligue 1 team, who are expected to appoint former Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti as their manager on Friday.
The player admitted earlier this week his relationship with Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri is not as good as he would like, while his agent has said a January move to PSG is an attractive option.
"There are no negotiations with PSG for Pato," Milan vice president Adriano Galliani told Milan Channel.
Galliani confirmed negotiations are ongoing with Manchester City concerning a possible deal to bring Carlos Tevez to the San Siro.
"There is a negotiation," said Galliani. "They (Man City) insist on us in signing him permanently in summer, whereas we only want the right deal.
"I think and hope that a deal will get done. Tevez continues to say he accepts only Milan.
"We have given up on all other options. Maxi Lopez? We have given up on this possibility."
