Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed controversial striker Carlos Tevez could return in next week's clash against Chelsea.

Tevez, who has not played for City since last September due to his infamous dispute with the club, has been training for the past month with a view to a first-team comeback. The Argentinian has made two appearances for the reserves since returning from his unauthorised leave and Mancini believes he could now be close to match fitness.

City are not in league action again until Chelsea visit the Etihad Stadium next Wednesday, by which time city rivals Manchester United could be four points ahead. Asked if Tevez could be available for that game, Mancini said: "We will see in the next week. It depends on Carlo. If Carlo is okay then probably, but it depends on a lot of things."
