Corinthians could bid for Tevez again in December
The Brazilian side recently attempted to re-sign the Argentine front-man, who played for the club between 2004 and 2006, and were believed to be prepared to pay €40 million to acquire his services. However, the move fell through due to the closing of the transfer window in Brazil, and it seemed as if the move was off.
But Luis Paolo Rosenberg, who sits on the board at Corinthians and is also the club's head of marketing, told Bloomberg: "You can expect we will be back for him [Tevez]. Manchester City needed more money. They asked for more.
"I think we were short by about €5 million. We still needed to negotiate with the player, too, but we couldn't do that until we had an agreement with City," he added. "Tevez is a fantastic player with a special emotional link to our fans.
"If we were to sign him, I predict a substantial increase in marketing revenues. This shows that our bid was not something unusual or 'daredevil.' The bid we made was within our budget."
City prepared for Tevez's departure by recently signing his Argentina teammate Sergio Aguerio from Atletico Madrid. Internazionale are also rumoured to be interested in Tevez's signature, but must first sell players to free up funds.
The 27-year-old is unhappy in Manchester and wants to leave due to personal problems. He has previously indicated he wants to be closer to his family, who live in Argentina.
