SC Corinthians Paulista, Brazil’s biggest soccer club by revenue, made a 40 million-euro ($56 million) bid for Carlos Tevez as it seeks to beat the trade deadline to sign the Manchester City striker.
SC Corinthians Paulista, Brazil’s biggest soccer team by sales, will use its television contracts to convince Manchester City that it can pay a national record of more than $55 million for striker Carlos Tevez, a club executive said.
Carlos Tevez’s proposed move to SC Corinthians Paulista for a Brazilian record fee collapsed after the Sao Paulo-based club said it had run out of time to sign the Manchester City striker.
Manchester City rejected a transfer request from captain Carlos Tevez , the Argentine striker who has spearheaded the soccer team’s challenge for the Premier League title this season.
Manchester City will fine Carlos Tevez only two weeks wages after the players’ union wouldn’t allow the soccer club’s plan to add another two-week fine.
