Sky Sports News understands Carlos Tevez will be interviewed by Manchester City officials on Monday morning regarding his actions in the UEFA Champions League game against Bayern Munich.

City manager Roberto Mancini claimed after the European match on Tuesday that Tevez had refused to come on as a substitute.

Tevez denied the allegations but Mancini stated that he was 'finished' at the Etihad Stadium and City decided to suspend the Argentine striker for two weeks whilst an internal investigation was carried out.

The investigation is now set to reach a critical stage on Monday, with sources close to Tevez informing Sky Sports News that he will attend an inquiry.

It is understood that he will speak to the club's lawyers and HR staff as City try to get to the bottom of what happened in Germany.

Travel denial

Tevez has received support from some quarters and a number of his team-mates, who hope the matter can be resolved, but Micah Richards became the first City player to publicly criticise him over the weekend.

The 27-year-old's future had already been the subject of intense speculation after he voiced a desire to leave the club during the transfer window, and the latest developments have only served to increase discussion.

He has made no secret of the fact that he misses home and reports suggested on Sunday that he had not been allowed permission to travel back to Argentina.

However, Tevez has denied these stories that Man City had prevented him from heading back to his homeland.

He is quoted as saying: "Contrary to misleading stories and headlines in some newspapers today, reports about my travel are totally false."
