Carlos Tevez's advisor Kia Joorabchian believes the player could have a long-term future at Manchester City.

The Argentina forward remains at the Etihad Stadium after a much sought-after summer move failed to materialise.

The 27-year-old, City's top scorer and talisman last season, said he would never return to Manchester, not even on holiday, as he tried to force City to sell him.

Tevez cited a desire to move nearer to his wife and daughters in Argentina as his chief reason but after a prospective move to Brazilian side Corinthians collapsed in July, no other deal transpired.

Joorabchian told talkSPORT: "There were a couple of offers in for him but obviously he is an important player for City and they won't let him go for any (old) price.

"We couldn't quite match what City wanted. But at the end of the day - as Carlos said at the end of the season - professionally, he is happy at the club."
