Tevez could play for City again if he proves his fitness: Mancini

MANCHESTER City manager Roberto Mancini has admitted Carlos Tevez could feature in the Premier League again if he proves his fitness.

Despite a widespread belief that the 27 year-old would have left City during the transfer window, Tevez remains with City after interest from AC Milan, Inter Milan and Paris St Germain failed to turn into permanent move.

Tevez remains in Argentina and, as yet, there has been no indication when the striker may return.

However, Mancini, who previously stated it was unthinkable for Tevez to play for the club again, has named him in his 25-man squad for the remainder of the season.

And, however unlikely, he could play a part in the title run-in.

"Carlos is not an option at the moment but it is possible in the future if he comes back," said Mancini.
