Man City boss believes Tevez will stay

Tevez had asked to leave City earlier in the summer in order to move closer to his family. But his family has now arrived in England.

Mancini said: “His family is here now. Now that his family is here I think that he can stay.

“I think this is a good moment for this club. Carlos is one of the best players that we have.”

He added: “He is not fit, he has only worked for two weeks.

“But I think with the good players that arrive in this team – after we won the FA Cup last year – they can try to think next year we can win the title.

“I think Carlos can play also next year.”
