Corinthians have confirmed they will try to sign Carlos Tevez in January – but for far less than the £40million offered in the summer.

Tevez touched down at Heathrow on Wednesday morning as he prepares to return as his two-week ban comes to an end.

The Brazilians failed in a bid to sign him in August because they could not agree a structure of payments or provide bank guarantees to satisfy City.

With the first raft of a lucrative new TV deal being paid in January, Corinthians are ready to make a new offer, but hope to capitalise on Tevez’s breakdown in relations with boss Roberto Mancini.

City accept they will have to accept a much lower fee but will demand a sell-on clause if they decide to cash in.

President Andres Sanches said: ‘We made an offer in the window, he is a player who interests us, but only in January will we see if we have a chance. He is not worth 40 million – we will make an offer well below it.

‘I don’t know if they will accept it, the (financial) gap is huge. I have a value in mind but I won’t say what it is.

‘The written offer of £40m isn’t worth anything now. After all of the problems, he should be worth less. What if he brings these problems here?’

City boss Roberto Mancini vowed that Tevez would not play for him again after allegedly refusing to come on as a substitute during the defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

However, Tevez denies refusing to play and says there was a misunderstanding with his boss.
