Man City boss Mancini admits Tevez contract talks planned
Tevez, 28, is no longer any trouble to Mancini after the controversy of last season when the Argentine forward went on strike - so much so that he wants his contract extended.
His deal runs out in 18 months and Mancini would like to see him stay for at least another year beyond that.
The City chief said: "Carlos is 28 and he has other years to play. I think that this could be an option."
