Corinthians have ruled out the possibility of signing Manchester United forward Carlos Tevez.

The Argentina international had been the subject of rumours in South America suggesting he could return to the Sao Paulo club with his long-term future at United still unresolved.

However Corinthians football manager Mario Gobbi told Jovem Pam Tevez will not return to the club.

"He (Tevez) would like to play for Corinthians," said Gobbi. "We have known this for a long time.

"Tevez identified with the club and is an idol for the fans.

"But it is only that, there is nothing else. We were surprised with the reports. Of course we would love to have him, but there is nothing in it at all."
