AC Milan have reportedly revived their interest in Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez after agreeing to sell Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to Paris Saint-Germain.

Swedish striker Ibrahimovic will head to the Parc des Princes as part of a €65 million double deal, and Milan are scanning the market for a high-profile replacement.

"Yes, I've sold Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to PSG," Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi told Sky Sport 24 on Thursday night. "We will save €150 million over two years."

Although the deal is not yet complete - with Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola claiming a contract agreement is still "far away" - a Milan move for Tevez is back on the agenda.

Milan tried and failed to sign Tevez in January when he was in dispute with City, but the deal fell through and the Argentine returned to Eastlands to help the club win the Premier League title.

The forward is never far from the headlines, but it would appear he is now content with life in Manchester and not looking to move on.

Speaking during a webchat on City's website, he said "I have lots of different targets. I think that now I feel settled at the club and feel good in myself and am working hard, the main aim of every one of the players is to have as good a league campaign as possible and try to be champions again and also to get as far as we can in the Champions League."

Tevez's wages could once again prove a stumbling block if Milan did pursue their interest, meaning the Rossoneri could turn their attention to his City team-mate Edin Dzeko.
