Time runs out for Carlos Tevez

Tevez will not be heading to Corinthians this summerBrazilian table toppers Corinthians will have to postpone their efforts to sign Manchester City star Carlos Tevez as the Brazilian transfer window closes today at 2100 GMT.

Corinthians fans, famous for their passion and loyalty to the club, dreamed of having the hard working Argentine back at the club he represented in the mid 2000s but, as an official Corinthians statement reveals, there was simply not enough time:

“The board of Sport Club Corinthians Paulista officially communicate the impossibility of signing the Argentine striker Carlos Tevez. While acknowledging the efforts of Manchester City and all involved in the negotiations, there isn’t more available time for the transfer to be achieved, given that the transfer window to players from abroad closes on Wednesday, July 20. Aware of the fans’ big dream of having the striker as a Corinthians player (again), the board looks forward to signing Tevez in the near future”.

While the last sentence may provide some consolation for Corinthians fans it has to be understood that money was also a contributing factor in the failure of the deal.

It is believed Corinthians offered City £35m to be paid in four instalments over four years with the first early in 2012, but the FA Cup holders demanded shorter payment terms and the first instalment of the £35m up front, and, as revealed by president Andres Sanchez, Corinthians won’t commit “financial madness”.

The failure to sell Carlos Tevez won’t deter other deals from taking place at Eastlands however as City boss Roberto Mancini expects the club to submit a bid for Sergio Aguero in the next few days. The fee expected to be offered for the Atletico Madrid striker is about £40m which, if successful, will show that City are prepared for life without their influential captain.
