The Argentinian is hoping to secure a move away from the club before the closure of this month's transfer window. The 27-year-old's representatives have held talks with AC Milan, Inter Milan and Paris St Germain but no transfer has yet materialised.
Joorabchian told talkSPORT: "We've been in negotiations with three big clubs but I don't think they have reached the figures Manchester City want. Carlos will remain at Man City until the summer. They (City) would like to move him on but only at a certain price."
Tevez has not played for City since September and has been in Argentina without the club's permission since November.
AC Milan had seemed the player's most likely suitors but the Italian champions have been unable to come up with an offer to suit City.
Joorabchian says a deal may now have to wait until the end of the season.
He said: "This summer will open up a lot of markets. All of the big clubs are looking for players who can play in the Champions League.
"Carlos Tevez is cup-tied and that creates a big obstacle. You're spending a lot of money on the transfer and the salary and he can't play Champions League.
"You have three-and-a-half months and then you can restructure your team, and buy Carlos, in the summer."
