Man City insist to Inter Milan only cash will do for Tevez sale

Manchester City are insisting to Inter Milan that only cash will convince them to part with Carlos Tevez.

The Manchester Evening News says City have made it clear to Inter that they will not budge from their £50m valuation of Tevez, who returned to Carrington yesterday for the first time since stating he wanted to leave the club.

And with manager Roberto Mancini making it clear over the weekend that he is not looking to sign Inter midfielder Wesley Sneijder, any kind of player exchange deal appears out of the question.

The Italians need to sell in order to find the cash to sign Tevez, and their offer is still likely to fall short of the Blues' price tag. Inter have mooted the possibility of offering either Brazilian full-back Maicon or Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o in part exchange.

But while Mancini has indicated an interest in Eto'o, the City board are not keen on a swap.
