Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini wants rid of Carlos Tevez.

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 on Friday 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."
