Milan still want Tevez, says agent

AC Milan remain keen on bringing Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez to Italy, according to the agent attempting to broker a deal.

The Argentina international has been a target for the Rossoneri since his well-publicised fall-out with City manager Roberto Mancini last September over his alleged refusal to warm up during the Champions League clash at Bayern Munich.

Tevez came close to joining the Serie A giants in January, but the move fell through when the sale of Alexandre Pato to Paris St Germain was called off at the 11th hour.

The 28-year-old striker claimed this week he was now "settled" at Eastlands after a harrowing first season with the Premier League champions.

However, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic expected to sign for PSG in the coming days, the agent who was involved in Milan's failed bid to capture Tevez six months ago believes the Italians might be more successful this time around.

"Tevez to Milan would be a complicated negotiation, but certainly he remains one of [Milan chief executive Adriano] Galliani's dreams," Giuseppe Riso told Sky Sport Italia.

"Perhaps this is the right time for the move. I am leaving for Manchester, yes, but not for business relating to the future of this player. But, whilst on a trip you can achieve many things."

It remains to be seen if Mancini would be willing to part with the South American as the Italian tactician has stated on numerous occasions he is happy with his strike-force, which also includes Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko.
