Etihad Stadium star is AWOL in Argentina but former club can’t afford to sign him.
Boca Juniors president Jorge Amor Ameal insists that Carlos Tevez remains too expensive for them to sign.
Tevez was back in his native Argentina last week, which prompted fresh suggestions that Boca could offer him a route out of Manchester City.
However, although Ameal admits to have had contact with Tevez – who was a legend during his three-year stint at La Bombanera, he admits they could not afford a deal for the striker.
Another of his former clubs Corinthians remain interested, but Boca admit they will not be joining the bidding.
“Carlos is deservedly a very important figure here,” Ameal told local radio.
“But from the economic point it is impossible.
“I did talk to him, and I lent him our support.”

This sounds like a not very subtle attempt to get Man City to reduce their asking price or to persuade Mr. Tevez to trim his trillion pound a week salary demands.
It doesn’t look like the 27 year old will ever play for City again but the problem is that he’s giving himself such a bad reputation that pretty soon he will be worthless, which is of course ridiculous because on the field of play he is a hugely talented player that most club’s would pay through the nose to snap up!
