Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini remains convinced about the sale of Carlos Tevez to Corinthians.

The transfer saga had been thrown into disarray after Corinthians refuted claims from City that a deal had been agreed for the homesick Argentine striker's return to South America.

But speaking after City had claimed 2-1 victory over Vancouver Whitecaps, Mancini remains confident a deal could be struck in the next few days.

"I slept last night and I had a game to prepare for today so I don't know any more," he said.

"The clubs are talking. I haven't spoken to it. They only have one number and it does not work at the moment."
