Inter Milan are no longer interested in signing Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez, according to Nerazzurri board member Marco Tronchetti Provera.

Tevez has been strongly linked with a move to Paris St Germain this week, although AC Milan and Inter have both shown an interest in acquiring the Argentina international in the January transfer window.

However, Tronchetti Provera said: ‘Does Tevez still interest us? He no longer does as he (Tevez) is looking to take a different path. Inter have rediscovered their champions and we don’t need to have him or anybody else. But he (Tevez) remains a great champion.’

Inter endured a dismal start to the campaign but are now fourth in Serie A and riding a seven-match winning streak in the league.

There has been no upturn for Tevez, however, and it emerged on Tuesday that his bitter fall-out with Manchester City has cost the rebel striker a staggering £9.3million in fines and lost bonuses.

Tevez, absent from the club for two months, remains in Buenos Aires and risks being left in limbo if no club meet City’s valuation before the end of the transfer window.

Having accepted a £40m deal with Brazilian club Corinthians last summer, the Premier League  leaders want £29m for Tevez.

Kia Joorabchian’s advisor Paul McCarthy told Sky Sports News: ‘When Carlos went back to Argentina in November, he and the club came to agreement that he waived his wages – because he was not at Manchester, Carrington, so he waived his wages.

‘And the situation is now that – quite frankly from Carlos’ point of view – it is never about the money, it is not an economic situation with Carlos; if it had been he would have sat down with City about extending his contract which was on the table at one stage, but that is obviously not the case now and we wait and see what happens over the transfer window.

‘Nobody has been under any illusion that City would accept a lower bid, a cut-price, cheap bid – there has never been that understanding.

‘From the outset we knew City would only accept market value and rightly so; why wouldn’t they and Kia and Carlos have no issue with that, they have the right to demand any price they wish as, Khaldoon Al Mubarak pointed out, he is still under contract.

‘Manchester City set the price; the fact Carlos has not played since September will influence that – but they set the price, they put the valuation on him, we can agree personal terms, discuss them with potential suitors but nobody but Manchester City can put the price on Carlos Tevez.

‘He is acceptant of the situation, he knows the transfer window closes next week – everyone is fully aware that Kia has been given the mandate to discuss terms with other clubs, but it is then up to those clubs to come to agreement with City over a fee.’
