Italian giants Inter Milan have ruled themselves out of a transfer tangle involving Manchester City and Carlos Tevez with club president Massimo Moratti saying that his personal demands as well as Manchester City’s asking price for the striker are a bit too much for them to be able to afford.

However, the Argentine international striker was strongly linked with a move to the Italian giants over the summer after it was evident that he was unhappy at Eastlands and wanted to play somewhere which would be closer to his home and it was also reported that Inter had offered around £ 30 million for the striker but nothing came of it at that time.

With Tevez making certain that he would leave The Citizens, whether it is during this transfer window or the next, Inter Milan as well as a host of other clubs including arch rivals AC Milan and Italian powerhouse Juventus, along with Brazilian champions Corinthians and Paris St Germain were linked with the temperamental Argentina international striker but the Inter president moved quickly to rule themselves out of the running for Tevez.

It was also reported at one time that Inter were willing to sale midfielder Wesley Sneijder to finance a move for the striker but Moratti recently revealed in a press release that they had negotiated with Tevez and his advisors over the personal terms of the contract but his demands were deemed to be a bit too high for his liking. Inter have been without a world class striker with the injury to Diego Forlan ruling him out indefinitely and it was reported in the Italian media that Tevez was their first choice to replace the injured Uruguayan in the January transfer window but it seems that Inter Milan will have to do without a decent striker until Forlan gets fully fit.
