Corinthians have denied reports that their bid to sign Manchester United's Kleberson has failed.
The player's agent Marcos Antonio Silva revealed that negotiations with MSI, the sports investment group that control Corinthians, had broken down over the player's wage demands.
"Manchester didn't accept MSI's offer and there was not an agreement with the player for his salary," Silva stated.
Corinthians claim to be close to agreeing a move to bring Kleberson back to Brazil from Manchester United.
The midfielder failed to settle in England and perhaps would have left Old Trafford last month had he not required an operation on an Achilles injury.
A meeting is reportedly taking place between the player's agent, who is also his father-in-law, and Corinthians officials.
Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted that Manchester United have not struck a deal with Brazilian outfit Corinthians for Kleberson, who has returned to training with The Red Devils following injury.
The Brazilian outfit - now bankrolled by sports investment group MSI - are looking to build the strongest team ever assembled in South American football.
They have already concluded a number of high-profile purchases including Carlos Tevez and Carlos Alberto, while a deal for Javier Mascherano of River Plate is also in place.
