Juventus have put in huge offer for homesick Argentine Carlos Tevez, who has been held by Manchester City despite multiple offers, according to Goal.com.
The news comes from Brazilian club Corinthians, who put in a prospective offer to bring Tevez back to South America to be near his family.
Roberto Mancini will hope to hold on to the striker, despite the supposed £45 million bid from the Italian Serie A team that only made seventh place last year.
Corinthians president Andres Sanchez said: “"Nothing has changed. They have to decide whether to sell or not," Sanchez told reporters in Brazil.
"They have a proposal for €52m [£45m] from Juventus, but Tevez does not want to stay in Europe.
"I keep dreaming. I made the offer in the end, even I was surprised. But it now depends on City. If I am president of a club that has Tevez then I would not want to sell. But the word of the player has a lot of weight
"You see that when the player wants to leave, he will leave anyway. In football, contracts were made to be broken."
"Within three or four years, Brazilian soccer is going to be the world's richest. Just do the accounts.
"The Corinthians have a recipe that no-one imagined two years ago. Corinthians will be, financially speaking, one of the world's strongest teams."
