Roberto Mancini wants end to Carlos Tevez transfer saga 'very quickly'


Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini hopes the Carlos Tevez saga will end "very quickly" as a return to the Etihad Stadium is "impossible".

Tevez's advisor Kia Joorabchian has now opened preliminary discussions with Paris St Germain over a potential move for the former City captain.

City have also been involved in recent dialogue with Inter Milan over the 27-year-old striker while AC Milan withdrew from talks with the club.

Tevez has not played for City since September and is currently in his native Argentina awaiting a possible transfer.

Mancini said: "I hope this will finish very quickly. I don't know [the latest].

"I think he has talked with PSG and Inter, but not Milan. I hope for him everything can finish very quickly."

Mancini was today asked if Tevez could return to the City team if a move fails to materialise before the end of the January transfer window.


The Italian, speaking at a press conference to preview Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham, said: "This is impossible. Carlos doesn't want to stay.

"It is important for him to start to play because he is a football player.

"It is now three months that he hasn't played and this is not good for him."

City defender Nedum Onuoha is edging closer to a possible move to QPR.

The 25-year-old academy graduate appeared as a substitute in the Premier League leaders' win at Wigan on Monday but has otherwise struggled for opportunities since returning from a loan at Sunderland.

Mancini said: "I don't know [the latest]. They were talking yesterday. Maybe today or tomorrow, it is possible.

"Nedum deserves to play. He is a good guy and if he stays here he will maybe play one or two games.

"That is not enough for a young player."
