Many believed that former Manchester United and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez would be ending his controversial but goal-laden career with his boyhood Argentinian club Boca Juniors.
However, always the one to love shaking things up, Tevez appears to have burnt his bridges with his home-town side after the striker fell out with certain members of the Boca board regarding his status at the club, and according to the Mirror, the 32-year-old’s agent Kia Joorabchian has all but confirmed the player’s move to Corinthians: “The deal is practically done.”
“We are only lacking the signatures on the contracts for us to be able to say he’s a Corinthians player.”
“Atletico, two English clubs and Juventus have tried to get him but Carlos wanted Brazil and Corinthians.”
Rumours had surfaced that the striker was looking for a move back to Europe, and in particular back to his first English club West Ham United, but had reportedly turned down an offer worth £150k-a-week nine years after leaving the Hammers, and will continue to play in South America for the 2016/17 campaign.
