Manchester City ace wanted by Milan

AC Milan are set to renew their interest in Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez, and will sell Robinho to raise funds to make a move for the Argentine, according to Mirror Football.

The South American attacker has had a rollercoaster season; firstly he refused to enter the field of play against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, then went AWOL for three months, only to return to City’s line-up and help them to the Premier League title.

Despite all this, Tevez’s future is unclear as yet and the Italian side are eager to bring him to the San Siro after seeing attempts thwarted in January.

The Rossoneri lost their Serie A title to Juventus this term, and as such as having a revamp of their squad in the summer, with older heads Alessandro Nesta, Rino Gattuso, Filippo Inzaghi, Gianluca Zambrotta, Mark van Bommel and Clarence Seedorf all on their way out.

Robinho, who has been on the fringes of the Milan starting line-up, may also make way in the summer clearout.
