Kia Joorabchian denies Carlos Tevez has ruled out Paris Saint Germain as a possible new club and he could be prepared to wait until the summer.

Carlos Tevez: Transfer saga continues

Quotes from Twitter were attributed to the Manchester City striker's representative on Thursday and seemingly dismissed the Ligue 1 club and Italian giants Inter Milan.

But it has since been confirmed the account in Joorabchian's name is a fake and either PSG or Inter therefore remain possible destinations for Tevez ahead of Tuesday's transfer deadline.

AC Milan are expected to make a final decision on whether they will continue in their attempt to sign the 27-year-old, who since September has not played due to an infamous bust-up with Roberto Mancini, while Inter and PSG have wavered.

Joorabchian, though, believes a move to PSG could still materialise, either this month or in the summer, if his client does not join Milan or Inter.

"If Carlos doesn't leave Manchester City this winter, he doesn't rule out the possibility to join PSG in the summer," Joorabchian told L'Equipe. "Carlos has faith in PSG project.

"You know he had talks with Carlo Ancelotti, one of the best coaches in the world. He talked with (PSG director of football) Leonardo. Paris can be a possibility."

Joorabchian also underlined he has not used a Twitter account to discuss Tevez's future.

He said: "It is a fake Twitter account. I didn't tweet. Above all, Carlos has no problem with Le Championnat (Ligue 1).

"In England, Argentina or Brazil, Carlos won everything. He now needs a new challenge."

Tevez is currently in South America after returning to Argentina on November 7 having agreed with City to waive his wages. The decision has so far cost him £9.3m.

City remain adamant they will not sell for anything less than the £30m valuation they have set for former Manchester United star.

The Premier League leaders' chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak, confirmed the club would expect Tevez to honour the remaining two-and-a-half-years of his contract if he is not sold.

But Milan do hope to complete a signing on Friday evening, whether that is Tevez or the completion of the signing of Argentine Maxi Lopez from Catania.

"We are at the final rush", Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani told Milan's official website. "Before 7pm, we will present something."
