Former club not interested in signing Etihad Stadium striker.
Corinthians have no plans to renew their interest in Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, their general manager Edu has told BBC Sport.
Tevez was the subject of a £35m bid from the Brazilian club in July but they ran out of time to seal the deal.
The 27-year-old is currently suspended while City investigate his alleged refusal to play against Bayern Munich.
“At the moment there are no plans to try and sign him again,” said former Arsenal and Brazil midfielder Edu.
“I’m starting to think about our new squad for 2012 and I’ve talked to our coach [Tite] about what we need – but Tevez was not mentioned.
“We are always interested in world-class players like Carlos but you need to analyse if it’s right for you at that time to try to sign him or not. We have not spoken to him or his agent.”

Corinthians were said to be ready to offer Carlos Tevez a return to Buenos Aires but now it seems they have ended their interest in the Argentine striker and one can only assume that recent events at the Etihad Stadium club have played a part in their decision.
Man City will be keen to sell the striker in the January transfer window and may even drop their valuation a tad but there appears to be a lack of prospective suitors and this situation can only really be a reaction to the potential headache in making such a purchase because in pure footballing terms it is clear that the 27 year old is a hugely talented and prolific marksman.
Roberto Mancini has made it clear he has no intention of picking the former Man United and West Ham man again and even if the investigation into his reported refusal to play at Bayern Munich sides in Tevez’s favour the Italian has already replaced the striker with Sergio Aguero and will be keen to get rid of the player as soon as possible.
