Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has admitted that there is every chance Carlos Tevez could play for Manchester City again if he offers an apology for refusing to come on as a substitute in the match against Bayern Munich in September.

Carlos Tevez has not played for Manchester City for over four months now, and has reportedly lost £ 9.3 million over the last few months due to the various clashes with Manchester City over wages and pay. The Argentine striker is currently in Argentina due to his quarrels with Manchester City, which has become extremely easy for the English club to give a reason for not paying him is weekly wages of around £ 200,000.

Despite the huge number of problems Carlos Tevez has caused at Manchester City, Roberto Mancini has still included him in the 25 man squad for the second stage of the Premier league season. It led to speculation that Carlos Tevez could finally be back at Manchester city after quite a while.

It was again confirmed by Roberto Mancini, who said that the fitness of Carlos Tevez is one of the major problems. Having not played for around four months now, Carlos Tevez is expected to be extremely poor in terms of the match fitness.

“Carlos is not an option at the moment but it is possible in the future if he comes back. I hope for him he has been training in the last three months to help his condition. There is only one thing on my mind, the Premier League. But if he comes back – and he is fit – it is possible,” said Mancini.

Manchester City are currently top of the Premier league table, but are facing intense competition from Manchester United. Further, City have a number of striker issues at the moment. The best online football odds place City as slim favourites to take the Premier League title, though their cause would undoubtedly be boosted by a Carlos Tevez return.
