After learning that bitter city rivals AC Milan had pulled out of the race to sign the Argentine, rumours are suggesting that Internazionale are ready to step back in for the signature of Carlos Tevez.
The 2010 Champions League winners pulled out of the race for his transfer when it appeared that AC had beat them to it, with a trade offer involving Alexandre Pato considered to be the deal-breaker.
However, the Brazilian starlet revealed that his relationship with manager Massimiliano Allegri may not have been as bad as first thought and has instead stated that he will be sticking with the Rossoneri.
This has practically cancelled the Italian giants out of the hunt for Tevez and will allow Inter to revive a bid with a player-plus-cash deal of the own.
Original reports were suggesting that the club were offering up Wesley Sneijder as a makeweight in the deal.
The Dutchman is known to be a transfer target of City who are apparently looking to add another central midfielder to the ranks and see either Sneijder or Roma anchorman Daniele de Rossi as the perfect candidate.
That being said, 2010 World Cup finalist Sneijder looks the more likely man to be leaving Italy this month with Inter reportedly experiencing some major financial issues while de Rossi is said to be close to signing a contract extension in the capital.
Inter will have a controversial but magnificent player on their hands should they land 27 year-old Tevez, and will surely go to great lengths to sign the star if it were to give them bragging rights over their age-old opponents.
