Manchester City reject £35m bid for Carlos Tevez from Corinthians

Manchester City have rejected a £35m bid from Brazilian side Corinthians for Carlos Tevez, but are searching for replacements should an improved bid come through.

Corinthians hope to bring Tevez back to the club where he enjoyed success from 2004-2006 and made an opening bid after Tevez revealed he wanted to leave City for family reasons.

But City turned down the 40m Euro offer on Tuesday and Corinthians will now need to increase their bid if they are to persuade the Eastlands outfit to sell the striker.

City may step up their pursuit of Atletico Madrid's Sergio Aguero as a possible replacement for Tevez, and Manchester City also retain a strong interest in Arsenal's Samir Nasri although no deal has been agreed or is close at this stage.
