Corinthians officials will negotiate Carlos Tevez's transfer with MSI on Tuesday.
Corinthians officials will meet investment group MSI in London on Tuesday in a bid to resolve the future of Carlos Tevez.
The Argentinian superstar is attracting the interest of a growing number of clubs in Europe after signaling his desire to leave Brazil, with Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Roma, Lyon and Real Madrid all linked with the impressive striker.
Tevez is determined to end his time at Corinthians after falling out with the fans and has burnt his bridges by refusing to return to the club.
With the end of the transfer window looming large the need to clarify Tevez's situation is pressing, so Corinthians have dispatched president Alberto Dualib and vice president Nesi Curi to negotiate his transfer with the company who control the Brazilian side.
Whilst the club were initially reluctant to lose their star forward, the Corinthians hierarchy have now conceded defeat and are determined to secure replacements through MSI.
Coach Emerson Leao has reportedly asked for PSV Eindhoven defender Alex, Fenerbahce midfielder Alex, Le Mans striker Grafite and Sevilla's Luis Fabiano.
Any new signings are likely to be dependent on Tevez leaving the club and recent indications suggest that England could be his likely destination.
