Corinthians have spending power to match wage demands of Man City striker Tevez

Corinthians have the spending power not only to cover Manchester City's asking price for Carlos Tevez, but also the striker's personal demands.

The Daily Mail says City have received a remarkable £37million offer for Tevez from his former club Corinthians.

With the Brazilian transfer deadline in 10 days, they hope to force through a deal that will take the Argentina striker back to South America.

It is understood that Corinthians, who bring in £50m every year from their TV rights and £23m from main shirt sponsors Neo Quimica, can also satisfy the 27-year-old star's high wage demands.

Tevez has expressed a strong desire to leave Eastlands, citing a desperate need to live closer to his children. A return to Brazil would be attractive and the striker is now keen to see the clubs agree a fee.
