Brazilian club retain interest in Etihad Stadium outcast.
Corinthians are still interested in signing Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, according to the club’s sporting director Edu.
The Brazilian side failed to sign the 27-year-old in the summer after it was revealed they could not afford his £40million transfer fee.
The Argentina international is currently suspended by the Blues after refusing to come off the bench during their 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich.
Edu, who played for Arsenal between 2001-05, was back in London last week for the Leaders in Football conference at Stamford Bridge.
While there he did meet with Tevez’s advisor Kia Joorabchian but the pair did not speak specifically about the player.
But Edu has now suggested the Brazilians could be back in the reckoning to re-sign their former player.
“It was quite difficult to sign him because at the time it was shortly before our transfer window,” he told Sky Sports.
“Now we are here [in England] and we will talk and see what the situation is and we will look to sign him in the summer.
“I will talk to the president – we offered £40million and now the money we had we have spent some of as that is football.
“We want to see how Tevez is and what his situation is, we will see if we can do a deal – he is very famous in Brazil and everyone loves him, and the fans want him.”
