Manchester City will sell Carlos Tevez to Corinthians for 20m - Edu

Corinthians director of football Edu claims Manchester City will take a cut-price ?20million for Carlos Tevez in January. The former Arsenal midfielder also told Brazilian media that City want to suspend Tevez for a month after his refusal to come off the bench against Bayern Munich. However, other reports suggest that City could be ready to retract their allegation that Carlos Tevez refused to play against Bayern Munich. Lonely this Christmas: But Carlos Tevez could find new company in January Edu has held meetings with his former Arsenal team-mate Patrick Vieira, now City's football development executive, and Tevez's adviser Kia Joorabchian and said: 'It's part of my work to search for players who want to come back to this country. I cannot deny that Tevez (above) is one of those. 'It is difficult to talk about a price to say if he is worth it or not. City have said Tevez must stay out of the club for a month. Mancini said that he does not want him back. We will hope to resolve his situation.' Tough decision: Roberto Mancini must decide the fate of his misfit striker The striker is set to appear before a club inquiry on Friday over the incident in City's Champions League defeat at the Allianz Arena last month. Tevez may not even be charged because, it is understood, nobody on City's playing staff has supported manager Roberto Mancini's version of events. Moving along: The Argentina striker's future could be clearer on Friday Mancini claims the Argentine, who had been named as a substitute, refused to come off the bench and play in Munich. Tevez could now be punished only for refusing to carry out Mancini's instructions to resume warming up with a view to playing in the match. Trash talk: Fans are being encouraged to recycle unwanted Tevez shirts Sign of the times: Tevez has reached new levels of unpopularity in Manchester It was claimed that Mancini may have shouted instructions at Tevez in Italian, despite the fact he does not speak the language. Meanwhile, with Tevez fast becoming public enemy No 1 in Manchester and he may want to avoid the Old Trafford area this Sunday and the top-of-the-table derby clash against his former club. Bookmakers Betfair, club sponsors of Manchester United, will be deploying a giant rubbish 'Recycling Tevez' skips outside Old Trafford on Sunday - one half blue and one half red - for fans to dump their replica shirts with his name on in exchange for brand new ones.
