Carlos Tevez will face disciplinary proceedings from Manchester City

Carlos Tevez has returned to Manchester City with the club's dispute over the rebel striker set to run until Christmas.

Tevez, whose two-week suspension is over, eventually turned up at their training base at midday - a day after being told he will formally disciplined for 'breaches of contract'.

Tevez was forced to train alone with fitness coach Ivan Carminati at Carrington.

Manager Roberto Mancini had earlier arrived on his bicycle as he attempts to resolve an issue that is overshadowing his club's trophy hunt.

Tevez met City officials on Wednesday and the club, following a two-week investigation, have concluded that hedid refuse to come on as a substitute against Bayern Munich.

As revealed by Sportsmail, Mancini doesn't even want Tevez training with the reserves until he proves himself physically and mentally ready and is ready to make him a complete outcast for as long as he remains at the club.

As such, the former club captain was told to arrive a couple of hours after the rest of the club's senior players. He is expected to do a similar session on Friday.

City expect Tevez's disciplinary hearing to take place tomorrow or - more likely - at the start of next week.

The striker, for his part, continues to claim he merely refused to warm up.

It is understood Tevez was ready to apologise for not warming up provided Mancini apologised for accusing him of refusing to play. City rejected this.

It is an unhappy situation for both parties and West Ham are monitoring developments to see if they cansign the 27-year-old on an emergency loan move until January.

In the meantime, Tevez must attend a disciplinary hearing before a member of the City hierarchy at which he will be informed of his punishment. In all likelihood this will be a British record fine in excess of ?1million and suspension of between four and six weeks.

Tevez is expected to appeal against the decision to the City board and if that fails he can take his case to the Premier League. This process could last well into December.

Manchester City's statement read: 'The club has been conducting an investigation into the events of 27 September at the Allianz Arena.

The PFA have consulted with Tevez, with chief executive Gordon Taylor telling BBC 5Live: 'I have (spoken to Tevez) and he is saying he didn't refuse to play but it was a question of him continually being asked to warm up and he felt he had warmed up enough.

'There was a problem that was caused in the conditions of the game and one player had come off, another player had gone on and so there's convicting views, yes, and from that point of view there is the view of the manager, the view of the player.

'The club have had to interview different people who were there at the time and see television evidence, and they feel there is enough evidence now to justify a disciplinary hearing.'
