Tevez unsure of what will happen with Man City

Carlos Tevez has revealed that he has no idea what will occur while his situation at Manchester City gets sorted out.

The Argentine absentee has been away from City for the past few months after having a series of run-ins with manager Roberto Mancini but a deal with a number of big European clubs could not be struck this winter meaning he is still officially a City player.

Tevez told Kicker magazine that there were plenty of offers for his services but nothing came to fruition and will simply continue living his life whilst he is not playing football.

"I just see I think the whole situation has become almost comical. I wanted to leave City and had offers from clubs in other leagues, both Italian and Spanish," h said.

"But in the end it all collapsed because City wouldn't accept any of the offers. They say at City that I cost them a lot of money and so they don't want to give me away on the cheap.

"But they don't want to loan me out, either. I really have no idea what will happen in the coming months.

"I sent City a letter in which I told them why I wanted to go. In the last few days I've also contacted the Premier League to appeal against the fine which City have imposed on me.

"I'm waiting now for an answer from the Premier League. Going to the League is the only option I've got right now.

"I can see that but there's nothing I can do about it. There were offers from Milan, from Inter and from Paris Saint-Germain. But each time nothing came of them.

"But certainly there were interested people who wanted to see me playing football again.

"Everyone has to do what works for them. Barcelona are a fantastic club, and La Liga a fabulous championship. But what happened, happened.

"There is also a personal aspect to all this. I wanted to be closer to my family, above all my children who are and were in Argentina. And because I couldn't play any longer at City I took control of the situation myself."
