Boca Juniors Look To Bring Carlos Tevez Home

Argentine side keen on re-signing Etihad Stadium forward.

Check in to Manchester City vs Newcastle United

Boca Juniors are hopeful of convincing former striker, Carlos Tevez, to return to Argentina, the Express reports.

The 29-year-old began his career with the Argentine giants, graduating from the youth academy to make his debut in 2001 where he stayed until 2004, scoring 38 goals in 104 appearances.

The 62 cap international has endured a turbulent tenure at The City Of Manchester Stadium. Last season he publicly fell out with manager Roberto Mancini during a Champions League tie with Bayern Munich, but he redeemed himself by helping the club to their first Premier League title.

So far this season he has been cautioned by police for driving whilst disqualified and he’s seen City’s challenge for a successive title slip away with eight games remaining, as well as stuttering through a limp Champions League campaign, crashing out at the group stage.

Reports in Spain suggest that he’s a target for his former club as City look to clear out a number of their current squad.

Tevez has suggested before that he would like to return to Boca, having grown up in the Fuerte Apache district close to the stadium. In January he said; “It is my desire to return to Boca, but it’s very difficult. I’m dying to wear the shirt of Boca again, but with the contract that I have here it’s very difficult for me to leave.”

He has scored 15 goals in 35 appearances this season across all competitions.
