Corinthians close on £35m Tevez

Carlos Tevez's representative Kia Joorabchian has confirmed that Corinthians are in negotiations to sign the striker from Manchester City and that a deal worth a reported £35 million is now "close".

Tevez has made public his wish to leave City this summer, citing a desire to be closer to his two children and their mother, who live in his native Argentina.

Though it was expected that the striker would move to Italy or Spain, it now appears Tevez could be set for an unlikely return to the club he represented between 2004 and 2006 before he made a shock transfer to West Ham.

Few clubs can match the financial demands of both City and the player but Joorabchian appears confident that a transfer to Corinthians is a realistic possibility.

"Negotiations have already begun. Corinthians are in contact with us," Joorabchian said.

"His dream and mine is to see him back with Corinthians. He said he has a job that does not end there, he wants to return because he has the dream of winning the Copa Libertadores.

"Corinthians have made the offer, now it depends only on Manchester City. City has to make a decision.

"Everybody is working to make this happen, I, Corinthians, Tevez, Adrian Ruocco (another representative of the player). It is impossible to determine the situation, but I think it's close."

Tevez was named South American Footballer of the Year in 2003, 2004 and 2005, spanning spells with Boca Juniors and Corinthians, and appears interested in returning to the Brazilian club.

Tevez told Telefe: "If there is interest, I don't have any problem in returning to Corinthians."
