City consider offer to Tevez

6:38 am on 13 July 2011

Manchester City have received a 70 million dollar bid from Brazilian side Corinthians for Carlos Tevez - but the offer is likely to be rejected by the English football club.

Corinthians hope to bring the 27-year-old back to the club where he enjoyed success from 2004 to 2006 and made their move after Tevez revealed he wanted to leave City to be reunited with his family.

City are considering the offer, but early indications are that Corinthians will need to increase their bid if they are to persuade the Eastlands outfit to sell the striker, who captained them to their first major trophy in 35 years when they won the FA Cup in May.
