Corinthians lodge second Tevez bid

Corinthians have made an improved offer for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

• Mancini hopes for Nasri deal
• City: No Juve bid for Tevez
• 'City expect to win title'

Corinthians saw a €40 million (£35 million) bid turned down by City earlier this week, with the Premier League club said to be seeking a fee nearer £50 million.

ESPNsoccernet understands that the Brazilian team have upped their proposal to €40 million plus €4 million in add-ons. City are tempted by the terms although they could look to negotiate further.

Corinthians are under pressure to wrap up a deal before Wednesday, when Brazil's international transfer window closes. Juventus have also been mooted as suitors, but no official offer has been forthcoming from the Italian team.

It is reported that City have concerns over how the South American club will finance the deal, but Kia Joorabchian has insisted they have the funds available, citing sponsorship and TV rights money.

City manager Roberto Mancini is already plotting for life without Tevez after confirming he will look to bring in the Argentina international's compatriot Sergio Aguero from Atletico Madrid.

Should Aguero arrive at Eastlands as Tevez's replacement, the 23-year-old will have big shoes to fill - the latter having scored 44 Premier League goals in 66 outings since arriving from Manchester United in 2009.
