The Argentina international has had a turbulent last 12 months at the Etihad Stadium, and after a number of controversies looks set to leave the Premier League during January.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men are thought to be keen to take Tevez on loan, but City have clarified that only an outright sale will be considered.
The Sweden international has backed the Scudetto holders’ attempts to bring the South American to the San Siro, and feels he would offer an extra attacking option.
“For me, Tevez is a great player. I don’t know how the situation is and if he’s coming, if he’s not coming,” the Scandinavian stated in a press conference.
“But he’s a great player and if he comes for sure he will do a great job for us; it would be an extra weapon for us.
“Everybody knows what kind of a player Tevez is. He’s a fantastic player and he will bring extra quality to the team,” he concluded.
