Carlos Tevez proposed £40million transfer to Corinthians has collapsed after the Brazilian side pulled out of the deal. The Argentine player has expressed his desire to leave Manchester City to be closer to his family and the £40million price tag would only be available to Corinthians on humanitarian grounds so Tevez could be closer to his family.
However, the Brazilian transfer window closes on July 20th, making it impossible to sign players based abroad before it closes today.
"The board of Sporting Club Corinthians hereby officially announce the impossibility of hiring the Argentine striker Carlos Tevez," said the statement.
"While acknowledging the efforts of Manchester City and all involved in the negotiation, more time is needed for the transfer to be achieved, given that the window to sign players from abroad closes on Wednesday, July 20
"We are aware of the dream our fans had of having this player at Corinthians again and we look forward to him being with us in the near future."
Corinthians are still interested in the player, but it seems no deal with be done until the January transfer window which will allow time for negotiating on personal terms.
Tevez is back home following Argentina's Copa America exit, City are keen to lure fellow countryman Sergio Aguero to the club and provide even more competition for places. But after the collapse of Tevez transfer could this spell the end Aguero pursuit and Tevez remain at Eastlands?
