Serie A - Milan set Tevez deadline


AC Milan's managing director Adriano Galliani has given Manchester City a 6pm deadline on Friday to accept the club's bid for striker Carlos Tevez, with Catania's Maxi Lopez waiting in the wings.
"We will have someone by 1900 (local time) on Friday," Galliani told Milan Channel. "I can tell you he will be Argentine with a surname ending in 'z'."
Tevez had also attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Internazionale but Milan is now the most likely destination for the striker, who was fined six weeks' wages on Tuesday for gross misconduct.
Second-placed Milan hope to have goalkeeper Christian Abbiati back from injury for Sunday's visit of Cagliari but are likely to be without German midfielder Alexander Merkel who suffered a knee injury on Thursday when the Rossoneri set up an Italian Cup semi-final with Juventus by defeating Lazio 3-1.
Meanwhile, Milan scooped the top prizes at Italy's players' awards for 2011 on Monday with Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic winning best player in Serie A, Thiago Silva voted best defender and Stephan El Shaarawy best player in Serie B.
