Carlos Tevez was meeting Manchester City officials on Monday as the inquiry into his actions during last week's Champions League match at Bayern Munich, took a significant step forward, a source close to the player confirmed to Reuters.

Manager Roberto Mancini said after Tuesday's game, which ended in a 2-0 win for Bayern, that Tevez had refused to go on as a substitute and that as far as he was concerned the Argentine's career at Manchester City "was finished."

The striker denied the allegations but was suspended by the club for two weeks while an internal investigation was carried out.

Reuters sources close to Tevez confirmed the meeting was taking place on Monday at a private location.

"There was some confusion on the bench and I believe my position may have been misunderstood," he said in a statement last week.

"I would like to apologise to all Manchester City fans, with whom I have always had a strong relationship, for any misunderstanding that occurred in Munich."
