Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has offered Carlos Tevez an olive branch after their recent bust-up.

Mancini claimed Tevez was finished at the club after a dispute between the pair during the 2-0 defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The former Manchester United man was fined two weeks' wages after being found guilty of five breaches of contract relating to his actions in Munich

It is widely expected City will look to offload Tevez when the transfer window reopens in January, but Mancini has indicated the Argentinian could still have a future at the club if he apologises for his actions.

"Everything depends on Carlos. If he apologises to the squad and to me then everything will be as before."

Quotes of the week

"Everything depends on Carlos. If he apologises to the squad and to me then everything will be as before," Mancini is quoted as saying in the Corriere della Sera.

"If he doesn't then Tevez has a value that everyone knows and something will happen in January. He is totally unprepared and being badly advised.

"I don't want it to be like this and I would be the first to forgive him."

Mancini also dismissed talk that Tevez could go to Napoli as part of a swap deal for Ezequiel Lavezzi.

He added: "No one from City will be given away."
