AC Milan are keen on throwing a transfer lifeline to Manchester City misfit Carlos Tevez.


The Argentinian is still in his homeland after going AWOL from the Etihad Stadium and attempts at a reconciliation with boss Roberto Mancini have proved to be futile up to now, according to The Mirror.


Milan number two Mauro Tassotti has stated his club’s admiration of the former Manchester United and West Ham striker. However, Tassotti warned that any possible transfer from City to the San Siro would depend on Tevez’s physical and mental condition.


He said: “Tevez to Milan? He is a great player but we need to evaluate his condition and his head because as well as technical ability, you need to be mentally ready to play.


“There are problems with Manchester City but it could be an idea.”


Tevez’s time at the Etihad Stadium appears to be up after he failed to return from an unauthorised absence to Argentina following disciplinary proceedings.


City had fined the player two weeks wages and forced him to train alone for breach of contract, after an incident during the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich in September.
