AC Milan are expected to make a move for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, according to reports on Friday.

The Argentinean has often cut a controversial figure at the Etihad Stadium, with the player missing six months of last season following a bust-up with City boss Roberto Mancini after refusing to warm-up during a Champions League match with Bayern Munich in September.

Tevez did return to action in the closing stages of the campaign and helped them win the Premier League, their first title since 1968.

But Milan have now expressed an interest in the 28-year-old as they restructure the squad, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva having been sold to Paris Saint-Germain, according to club President Silvio Berlusconi.
