Former Inter Milan defender Marco Materazzi has implored the Italian giants to not bother pursuing Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

The Argentine has been the subject of a failed bid by the Nerazzurri, who remain extremely interested in his services, but ex-Italy international Materazzi feels the club should go after AC Milan ace Alexandre Pato instead.

"I don't think Tevez will come. We should take Pato. I'd take him right away. He is one of the biggest talents around in my opinion," he told RMC.
