Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has named in Carlos Tevez his 25-man squad for the remainder of the season despite the player remaining in Argentina whilst in dispute with the club. It was expected the 27-year-old would have left City during the transfer window but no interested club's followed up their initial interest.

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

"I hope for him he has been training in the last three months to help his condition.

"There is only one thing on my mind, the Barclays Premier League. But if he comes back - and he is fit - it is possible."
