Reports last week suggested a move to France looked unlikely for Tevez after claims his advisor, Kia Joorabchian, failed to hold positive discussions with PSG.

And now Leonardo has announced the Argentina international will not be arriving at Parc des Princes, leaving the two Milan giants, Inter and AC, as his only remaining suitors.

"We stopped the negotiations," Leonardo told L'Equipe. "At the moment there is not much movement in the market.

"There was an opportunity, we have studied it, we made a good offer but failed to agree a deal. We will not pay excessively so we stop. It's over."

The Brazilian former World Cup winner did, however, confirm they are chasing Chelsea defender Alex and Inter Milan midfielder Thiago Motta.

"Both of them are possibilities but for now, nothing is done," he said.
