Carlos Tevez was expected to retire at Boca Juniors after returning to his beloved boyhood club last year.

But it’ll come as no great surprise to anyone that the Argentine striker has fallen out with the club’s board following a dispute and is now on his way out of the Bombonera.

Tevez, who turned 32 in February, has been linked with a return to European football but will, according to his agent, continue in South America.

The ex-West Ham, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus star is apparently set to join another his former employers: Corinthians.

Tevez was offered £150,000-a-week by West Ham to return to the Hammers, nine years after leaving the club, but that generous wage has been rejected by the player.

Joorabchian confirms Tevez to Corinthians

Speaking about the deal to join Corinthians, Tevez’s agent Kia Joorabchian was quoted as saying by the Mirror: "The deal is practically done.

"We are only lacking the signatures on the contracts for us to be able to say he's a Corinthians player.

"Atletico, two English clubs and Juventus have tried to get him but Carlos wanted Brazil and Corinthians."

Don’t count on this being the final move of Tevez’s fascinating career.
