Former Manchester United and Juventus star, Carlos Tevez, has stirred up interest from Chelsea and Napoli. Although, the Argentine is unwilling to leave his current side, Boca Juniors.
The 32-year-old attacker began his career with Boca Juniors before travelling to England and Italy, where he became one of the most sought after players in the world.
When Tevez returned to Argentina, he made his intentions clear that he doesn’t want to return to a European club, and Carlos recently reassured his promise when he revealed that he turned down offers from Napoli and Chelsea.
“I’m not coming back. I’m fine at Boca,” Tevez told Italy’s Corriere Dello Sport.
“Indeed my idea, my dream is to finish my career as a player in this wonderful club.
“Europe? Yes, it’s true Napoli and Chelsea seek me, but I repeat what I said before. My desire is to stay at Boca until I retire.”
West Ham were also believed to be interested in the Argentine forward. David Sullivan, West Ham’s co-chairman, mentioned the possibility of re-signing Tevez for the club. However, the 32-year-old made it clear that he has no intention of leaving Boca Juniors, as he asked for a massive £250,000-a-week wage.
Tevez played for the Hammers in 2007, when he saved the club from relegation in the last 10 games of the season.
The Argentine left Europe last year, after a 2-year spell in Italy. He played under Antonio Conte’s management at Juventus, where he won back-to-back titles, and also reached a UEFA Champion’s League final. He scored 50 goals in 95 appearances for the Bianconeri.
Tevez is reluctant to return to Europe after several controversial spells. The Argentine left England and joined Juventus after being banned from Manchester City’s first team squad. Tevez would like to finish his career in Argentina.
