Manchester City chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak has warned Carlos Tevez he will face further sanctions if he refuses to return from South America at the end of the transfer window.

In an unprecedented move, Khaldoon has spoken publicly about a City player to make it clear in no uncertain terms that he will not be railroaded into selling Tevez to AC Milan just because it is the 27-year-old's preferred destination. Tevez has remained in South America since November 7, extending a dispute that has so far cost him £9.3million.

Although Paris St-Germain and Inter Milan have made approaches to City, it appears Tevez is holding out for AC Milan, who have so far failed to meet the Blues' £25million asking price. Khaldoon said: "Carlos remains a player with contractual obligations to Manchester City for the next two-and-a-half seasons."
