Manchester City won't release Tevez on loan

6:34 am on 21 December 2011

Transfer talks between Manchester City and AC Milan over Carlos Tevez appear to be heading for stalemate after City's manager Roberto Mancini ruled out a loan deal.

AC Milan are offering a free loan with the right to buy Tevez in June, but Mancini said a loan deal would set a bad precedent and the best solution for them is to sell.

Tevez was fined for refusing to come off the bench to play in a Champions League match against Bayern Munich three months ago, and he hasn't played a match for the English premier league leaders since the 21st of September.
