Inter Milan have ruled out signing controversial Manchester City star Carlos Tevez.
The Argentina striker has been linked with a move to Serie A following his bitter fall-out with City.
Tevez, 27, was sanctioned by the Etihad Stadium club after his apparent refusal to warm up during the crucial UEFA Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich.
Boss Roberto Mancini has confirmed City are looking to offload him in a permanent deal, with the striker currently AWOL in South America.
Inter's bitter rivals AC Milan have announced their intention to sign Tevez on loan when the transfer window opens next month with a firm option to buy next summer.
However, the Nerazzurri insist their interest does not even go that far.
"I'm disappointed because the terms that we negotiated with the player, which I imagine are similar to that of Milan's, we didn't consider them acceptable," Inter president Massimo Moratti told Gazzetta dello Sport.
Tevez has been absent from City for the past month after returning to Argentina without permission and refusing to return to Manchester.
He decided not to appeal against a club fine for misconduct when he was found guilty of five breaches of contract for his behaviour on the City bench in Munich in September.
