Man City and Corinthians reach Tevez agreement
Manchester City have agreed a deal with Corinthians for the sale of striker Carlos Tevez.
The Argentinean attacker has stated he wants to leave the Premier League club to be closer to his family and it seems a return to Brazil could be imminent. Tevez played for Corinthians between 2004 and 2006.
The transfer fee has not been disclosed but a £39 million bid was rejected last week, with Corinthians president Andres Sanchez later stating that his club would not improve their offer for the 27-year-old.
City manager Roberto Mancini confirmed: “We have an agreement with Corinthians but Carlos now is still a City player.”
Regarding a replacement for the seemingly-departing Tevez, bookmakers Victor Chandler are offering odds of 1/5 on Atletico Madrid forward Sergio Aguero joining City during the summer transfer window, with Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri priced at 1/3 to make the switch. Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto is 6/4 to arrive at Eastlands before the end of August.
