The agent who started the who dual ownership row in the first place, Kia Joorabchian, has claimed that he can convince Carlos Tevez to return to Brazil to play for Corinthians in the next two years.
Tevez, who came off the bench to score again for City against Notts County in their 5-0 FA Cup win, had a successful two year spell in Brazil in 2004-2006.
Tevez has never made his homesickness a secret, and whilst he is Argentinean, Brazil is a lot more like home than rainy Manchester. The player even handed in a transfer request in December last year, although has since withdrawn that and insisted he is happy in Manchester.
Joorabchian used to own Corinthians, and has told the club he believes the player can be convinced to join again.
Speaking to TV Gazeta, he said, “I want to help Corinthians in their sporting quest.”
“I can guarantee that Carlos Tevez would be happy to return to Brazil and play for Corinthians.
“I would like a deal to be done swiftly, but in reality it would probably take a couple of years.”
Joorabchian also revealed plans to take further European based stars back to Brazil, adding, “I also want three more players to make the club the best in America.
“My desire would be to get Anderson [from Manchester United], Heurelho Gomes [from Tottenham] and Nilmar [from Villarreal].
“Money will not be a problem. Carlos loves Brazil and I think it is all very feasible.”
