The Argentina striker, who is currently on the books of Manchester City, took in a successful two-year spell in Brazil between 2004 and 2006.

Having left his native South America, the burly 27-year-old has spent the last four-and-a-half seasons in England - with West Ham, Manchester United and City.

He has, however, made no secret of his desire to return to his roots, going as far as handing in a transfer request in December 2010.

Since then he has been persuaded to remain at Eastlands, but it is expected that he will be on the move within the next few years.

Joorabchian, a leading agent and one of the men behind a number of Tevez's big-money moves, believes the striker will play for Corinthians before he retires, but not in the near future.

He has informed Corinthians, a club he once owned, that he can help bring the prolific frontman back to South America.


"I want to help Corinthians in their sporting quest," Joorabchian told TV Gazeta.

"I can guarantee that Carlos Tevez would be happy to return to Brazil and play for Corinthians.

"I would like a deal to be done swiftly, but in reality it will probably take a while."

Joorabchian has also revealed ambitious plans to bring a number of other European-based stars back to Brazil.

He added: "I also want three more players to make the club the best in America.

"My desire would be to get Anderson [from Manchester United], Heurelho Gomes [from Tottenham] and Nilmar [from Villarreal].

"Money will not be a problem. Carlos loves Brazil and I think it is all very feasible."
