Corinthians director of football Edu says they remain interested in Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

Corinthians tried and failed to sign Tevez in August, something Edu blamed on their transfer window shutting before the European one.

"It was quite difficult to sign him because at the time it was shortly before our transfer window," explained Edu, who said he would hold talks about Tevez, with Sky Sports.

"Now we are here [in England] and we will talk and see what the situation is and we will look to sign him in the summer.

"I will talk to the president - we offered 40million euros and now the money we had we have spent some of as that is football.

"We want to see how Tevez is and what his situation is, we will see if we can do a deal - he is very famous in Brazil and everyone loves him, and the fans want him."
