Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has stated that Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko are part of his plans and will not leave the Etihad Stadium this summer.

The Premier League champions were expected to restrengthen in the transfer market during this window after their domestic success last term, but as yet have not bolstered their squad.

With City wary of Uefa’s Financial Fair Paly rulings, Mancini has been told by the club’s board that he will have to sell before he can buy.

Tevez cuts a controversial figure at the Etihad Stadium, firstly going AWOL and then returning to help the team win the division.

However AC Milan have been consistently linked with a move for the Argentine.

Dzeko meanwhile has slipped down to fourth-choice striker and is also being speculated with a move away from the club to find regular first-team football.

Despite this, the Italian trainer has revealed that he has no plans to sell either attacker this summer.

“Both will stay at City,” Mancini is quoted as saying in The Sun.

“We are a great team and we try to keep our great players. It won’t be easy but they will stay here.

“We still lack a couple of players to reach the level of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

“Also our mentality has to grow season by season,” he concluded.Carlos Tevez
