Boca Juniors have revealed that their club president has landed in Chile to hold discussions with striker Carlos Tevez.
This is according to Goal.com, who report that Tevez could achieve his long-term ambition of finishing his career with Boca Juniors - who were his first professional club.
The Argentinean striker still has one-year left in his contract at Juventus, but Boca president Daniel Angelici has flown to the Copa America, where Tevez is currently on international duty, in an effort to beat off competition from a number of European teams - one of which is thought to be Atlético Madrid.

"Angelici arrived in Chile this morning, but we haven’t had an update on the situation yet, I don’t know if he’s had contact.
"Tevez is the idol of our supporters, a symbol of Boca, but also of Argentina. We’d be delighted to have him back with us.
“We’ve spoken with his agent - Juve are fine with Boca talking to him, but we’ve especially been working with his agent.
“Now we’re waiting to meet Carlos to continue the negotiations.”
Tevez held an impressive record for the 2014/15 campaign, scoring an impressive 29 goals in 44 appearances, which helped propel Juventus to the Champions League Final. However the Old Lady came stuck at the final hurdle, with Barcelona halting a valiant Juventus effort to win 3-1.
Potential Premier League return
An unknown Premier League club have offered Tevez a route back to England, according to Sky sources.
The forward made his initial move to England in 2006, where he joined West Ham but was subject to debate regarding the third party ownership of his playing rights.
After being resolved, the Argentinean then had a spell with Manchester United, before controversially joining Manchester City, where he scored 73 goals and helped them win the Premier League title in 2012.
