AC Milan legend Billy Costacurta has called on the club to take Carlos Tevez off Manchester City's hands.

The former defender says he would be perfect for them.

"Tevez would be perfect to substitute Cassano," Costacurta said.

"I get the impression that he could create some problems if he is left on the bench though - and that will happen at Milan when you consider the forwards they have in their squad.

"He would have to be managed properly. Nevertheless, he is the ideal attacker for Milan."
