Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has refused to rule out the chances of striker Carlos Tevez leaving the club in the summer, with boy-hood club Boca Juniors interested in luring him back to where his footballing journey started.
The Argentinian international started his career at Boca way back in 2001 and went on to make 75 appearances for the club in the three years that he was there.
After a short spell at Corinthians, Tevez made his move to England by signing for West Ham United in 2006. He then joined Manchester United in 2007 and stayed for two seasons, scoring 19 goals in 63 league games.
Then came controversy as Tevez swapped the red-side of Manchester for the Blue side as he secured a deal with Manchester City, where he then spent four years, playing 118 games, scoring 58 goals.
In the summer of 2013, Tevez left England and joined Juventus in a deal worth around £10 million, and since his arrival in Italy, he has been a star for the Turin-based club and has helped them win numerous Serie A titles.

During his time at Juve, the striker has made 54 league appearances, and scored 33 goals to help guide the club to the top of Italian football.
Return to Boca
However, now at the age of 31, Tevez could be in line for a shock return to his boyhood club of Boca, and Allegri has refused to rule out something happening in the summer.
Tevez's contract expires next year, but according to Allegri, a deal could take place at the end of this season.
Contract and Summer Plans
According to talkSPORT, Allegri said: "Will he see out his contract? I don't know. I live for today, this week, for this season in which we have to try to achieve the goals we've set ourselves.
"At the end of the season we'll see, but I think Tevez is a great professional, and above all Tevez is a great man, so we'll see what happens in the end.
"He's training well, he's having an extraordinary season, and I think that the last few days of rest and individual work can only have been good for him.
"We'll need him, so we have to get him ready for the second half of the season."
Tevez has always revealed his dream of retiring for his boyhood club and if it's not this year he moves back, it will almost certainly be next.
