Juventus striker Carlos Tevez has once again reiterated his desire to play for boyhood club Boca Juniors one more time before he retires from the game.

The 31-year-old is still one of Juve's top stars and has helped fire them to the top of the Serie A table and on the verge of yet another league title, whilst he's also helping them in the Champions League as they look to reach the semi-finals.

However, he has told Juve officials that his dream is to return to his homeland to play football before he calls time on his illustrious career.

Tevez's Career

Tevez has played for West Ham United, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus since his days in Argentina, but in a recent interview he stated that he wants to return to his homeland for his family and to play for his boyhood club one last time.

The Argentinian international was at Boca from 1997 until 2004, making 75 first-team league appearances and scoring 26 goals.

He was then rewarded for his fine form with a move to Corinthians before he then started his career in England with The Hammers.


In his two years in Italy, Tevez has made 61 Serie A appearances and scored 36 goals and he has become a crucial part of Juve's side.

According to earlier reports, Juve and Tevez have a verbal agreement that he can leave this Summer in order to return to Boca Juniors and he has reiterated that a move back to Argentina is what he wants.

Return to Boca

"My whole family and I are Boca fans and I want to play in that shirt once again," he told La Repubblica newspaper in Italy. "I don't know when, but I will return home. I've been in Europe for many years and I need my family. I miss my father, my mother and my brother.

"I can't complain as everyone has treated me well, but my mentality is Argentine and my desire is to go back to Buenos Aires.

"Of course people would prefer if the Tevez family all moved to Turin. I like it here, but my life is over there. I'm a family man, as we say."

Treble Dream

Despite talking about his future, Tevez is also focusing on this season and he's stated that he wants a treble but fears Bayern Munich will win the Champions League.

"I want the treble. We can dream, everything depends from us. The club I most fear? Bayern Munich," he added.
