The Italian champions have a deal in place with Catania to sign Lopez, who is desperate to make the move to San Siro.
However, Milan’s continued attempts to sign Tevez have complicated matters and, after emerging from a 40-minute meeting with Galliani, Lopez’s agent admitted that nothing has been decided yet.
“You are rightly focused on Maxi,” Andrea D’Amico told the waiting reporters. “But you know that Milan has another goal [Tevez]. We knew about this and now we just wait.”
Lopez, meanwhile, would only say of the current situation: “It’s better than [it was] before.”
Following Alexandre Pato’s decision to reject the advances of Paris Saint-Germain and commit his future to Milan earlier this month, Galliani announced that the club had abandoned their pursuit of Tevez.
However, the Rossoneri have now resurrected their interest in the forward and have reportedly given City until Friday evening to decide whether to accept their bid for the Argentina international.
Tevez has not played for City since refusing to come on as a substitute in the club’s Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena earlier this season.
