The Argentinian striker had been granted extended leave following the Copa America last month.
Tevez, 27, announced earlier in the summer that he wanted a move away from the club after finding it increasingly difficult to live apart from his children.
Inter Milan have now emerged as the favourites to sign Tevez after a move to Corinthians failed to materialise before the Brazilian transfer window closed.
His future however remains in doubt and he has now flown back and returned to Eastlands.
