Tévez, who has cited a desire to be closer to his two daughters as reason for wanting to leave the Eastlands club, was the subject of a club-record bid from his former employers on Monday night.

But within 24 hours the FA Cup winners rejected Corinthians' initial bid of £35 million for the Argentine with City thought to be holding out for a £50 million transfer fee for the 27-year-old.

"I was in Argentina for a Brazil match (at the Copa America), I spoke with Tévez and his representative on the phone," Sánchez told LanceNet.

"Corinthians have made an offer of approximately £35 million to sign him permanently. This sum means we will be spending 20 to 25 percent of our TV rights earnings if City accept it.

"I have made an offer which I think City cannot refuse, and we will not raise it further. If they ask for £50 million, they will keep him.

"If we haven't closed the deal by Sunday it won't happen this year."

Corinthians, one of Brazil's most popular clubs, reportedly bring in £40 million every year from their TV rights.
