SC Corinthians Paulista, Brazil’s biggest soccer club by revenue, submitted the bid. 

“Corinthians has made an official offer for Tevez,” club president Andres Sanchez said yesterday at a news conference in Sao Paulo. “The transfer window closes on July 20 so if we have no news by Sunday I don’t think we’ll get him this year.”

No explanation was provided, according to reports.

SC Corinthians were 1-2 odds favorites to land Tevez at press time early Wednesday morning. 

Tevez 20 Premier League goals last season helped his club to finish 3rd and qualify for the Champions League.

But Tevez wants to be closer to his family.

“Living without my children in Manchester has been incredibly challenging for me,” Tevez said in a July 4 statement. “Everything I do, I do for my daughters, Katie and Florencia. I need to be closer to them and to spend more time with them. I need them to be happy because my life is about them now. I need to be in a place where they can adapt.”
