Kia: Not just Corinthians offer on table for Man City captain Tevez

The agent of Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez expects a quick decision - either way - over a proposed move to Corinthians.

The Brazilian transfer window closes on July 20, which means any deal need to be done soon - but Kia Joorabchian insists that Tevez does have other options in Europe.

"The priority is Corinthians, but we have other options," he said.

"Carlos was the best player in the Premier League [last season], he was the scorer of the team for two consecutive years, he won the FA Cup.

"So he has much appeal in the European market. He is no longer a boy, today he is a great player."

Joorabchian insists that playing in Brazil would not be a step down for Tevez, adding: "Football in Brazil has changed, grown. His dream was always to return to the Corinthians, and this time there is a possibility."
