Tevez unfazed by transfer collapse

LONDON: Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez is unfazed by the collapse of his transfer to Brazilian side Corinthians and is expecting fresh bids from further clubs, his representative said on Thursday.

Argentinian international Tevez is seeking to engineer a move away from City, with the player reportedly desperate to join a club in South America in order to be closer to his family.

The 27-year-old appeared to be close to having his prayers answered in the form of a £40 million transfer to Corinthians before the Brazilian club pulled out this week saying they did not have enough time to wrap up the deal.

However Tevez’s representative Kia Joorabchian told the BBC on Thursday the player was not “overly worried” by the setback, believing that it was only a matter of time before other clubs entered the frame.

“This is Carlos Tevez we are talking about, one of the best players in the world. We are not overly worried,” Joorabchian said.

“He wants to leave but is still a City player at the moment and we will of course respect that.

“We’ve just got to wait and see who comes in next for him.”

According to reports in British media, Tevez’s Corinthians move faltered after City failed to receive bank guarantees for the transfer fee discussed.

However, Joorabchian insisted the deal broke down because Corinthians were unable to process it before the closure of the Brazilian transfer window. (Agencies)
