The Argentine star was once on the books of West Ham and can became a firm fan favourite, helping the club stave off relegation against the odds before moving to Manchester United.
Despite the club’s intentons, however, Tevez seemingly turned down the Hammers’ offer, as his agent now reveals that his client is instead on the verge of a move to Corinthians.
“The deal is practically done, with just the signature on the contracts lacking. He will become a Corinthians player. Atletico Madrid, Juventus and two English clubs have tried to sign him,” Joorabchian told AS.
The 32-year-old scored seven league goals in 26 matches for West Ham, including the winner in a narrow victory over Manchester United on the last day which preserved the club’s top-flight status.
Tevez has always kept the East London club close to his heart, as quoted by the Daily Mail back in 2014.
However, it seems he wishes to extend his stay back in his native South America and will trade Boca Juniors for Corinthians in the coming days with a deal seemingly all-but complete.
