Carlos Tevez arrived back at Manchester City's training ground on Monday morning with his future still uncertain.
The Argentina striker arrived at the Carrington training ground as a passenger in a black Hummer, and exchanged an embrace with a security guard before going into the complex.
Tevez has made no secret of the fact that he wants a move. Brazilian side Corinthians failed in a bid last month and Inter Milan looks to be the most likely destination for the player.
In June, Tevez told a chat show on Argentinian television that he would not return to Manchester ever - "not even for a vacation" - and complained about the weather.
The skies were suitably grey on Monday and there was a chill in the air to welcome him back.
Tevez told the Argentinian television channel Telefe: "There's nothing to do in Manchester. There's two restaurants and everything's small. It rains all the time. You can't go anywhere.
"There comes a moment where you say 'Where am I going to go with my family?' and you begin to feel bad.
"Of course, one trains, plays, does things, and when the family or friends come one feels bad and you can't take them to the movies because they don't understand anything.
"I will not return to Manchester, not for a vacation, not anything."
