Brazilian club Corinthians, who came extremely close to signing Carlos Tevez a few years ago, have said that they are not interested in signing the Argentine striker anymore. Corinthians managed to lift the FIFA Club World Cup this season by managing to beat Chelsea in the final of the competition. This has boosted the profile of the club to a significant extent. They are now looking to bring him several players over the summer transfer window due to the presence of several sponsorship deals.
Tevez came extremely close to leaving Manchester City after falling out with Roberto Mancini a few years ago, but he now has integrated him extremely well into the club once again. He has not been speaking of leaving the club in recent months. The 29-year-old has been one of the main reasons behind City’s possible second place finish in the table. Corinthians director of football Edu Gaspar has said that the club is no longer interested in signing Tevez. Instead, they are looking to strengthen the team in several areas of the pitch.
He has pointed out to the signings of players like Renato Augusto and Alexandre Pato as signs of a lot of ambition from the club. Brazil international Pato was signed from AC Milan during the January transfer window.
“At this moment we have no interest in Tevez, we’ll sign players for the positions we need. We don’t seek a player because he is or might become important. If we need a player and we see that is someone who we need, we go after him. We will fight to sign him. Our idea is to keep the club always on the top. If we are not the best, we have to fight to be among the best. Many people said that Corinthians didn’t need to make signings, but we brought in three great players – Pato, Renato Augusto and Gil,” said Gaspar.
