Manchester City confirm Carlos Tevez set for Corinthians move

MANCHESTER City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed that an agreement has been reached with Corinthians for the sale of Carlos Tevez.

City turned down a �40million bid from the Brazilian club last week, with the Eastlands outfit believed to be holding out for �50million for the hitman.

However, speaking on the club’s pre-season tour of North America, Mancini told Sky Sports News: “We have an agreement with Corinthians but Carlos now is still a City player.”

The Sao Paulo club moved for the Argentina striker after being alerted by Tevez’s admission earlier this month that he wished to leave City for the sake of his family, with his two children based in his homeland.
