Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has said that Carlos Tevez will not be allowed to go on loan in January. A number of clubs are reportedly interested in signing the Argentine, who has been causing a lot of troubles at Eastlands.

It is thought that Manchester City are willing to let the Argentine go for around £ 25 million, which is a fraction of the £ 40 million that they were demanding during the summer. It, however, does seem to be a little too high for the potential suitors because almost every single club are interested in taking Carlos Tevez only on a loan deal.

AC Milan are thought to be the leading club in the race for signing the Argentine, but they too are willing to take him only on a loan deal. However, they are willing to make the move permanent in the summer when Carlos Tevez will be transferred for around £ 20 million.

According to Roberto Mancini, this is something that does not suit for the player or the club, and he is looking to bring an end to the Argentine’s relationship with City in the coming January itself. AC Milan have said that they will be opening talks with Manchester City just ahead of the January transfer window over a possible move, but are unwilling to pay now for the striker because he is cup-tied for Europe after playing for City in the Champions League.

In spite of the fact that Tevez leaving will have a big impact on City’s odds on the Europa League betting markets, its thought to be near on impossible for Tevez to stay.

“Milan know they can’t get him on loan, they know it very well. But if they want to buy Carlos, for us, that is okay. We hope that Carlos can find a good solution for him, and that he can come back and play football. But they can’t have him on loan. This is sure, 100 per cent. The best solution for us is to sell him,” Roberto Mancini said when asked about a potential loan move for Carlos Tevez.

Mancini could have done with Carlos when his Sky Blues faced Manchester United in the FA Cup. Whilst many fans had been tempted to bet on Man City, it was the Reds who prevailed, quickly running up a 3-0 lead at the Etihad stadium.
