Carlos Tevez – His love affair with Boca Juniors

Carlos Tevez – His love affair with Boca Juniors

Carlos Tevez has been linked with a move to his former club Boca Juniors over the past few weeks. In the past Tevez has always been open about wanting to finish his career at the club where his career began. But it was always clear that Tevez, who left Boca in 2004, would one day return to finish his career in Argentina. This would explain why he chose not to renew his contract with Juventus in 2014. Carlos Tevez has been a fan favourite during his time at Juventus due to his phenomenal performance. He is also currently the Series A’s top scorer with 18 goals, a feat which has made him indispensable for Juventus. With the season coming to a close, Juventus could still potentially win the treble (that is the league, the cup, and the Champions League). The possible transfer of Tevez from Juventus to Boca comes amidst the 110th anniversary of Boca Juniors, and the club wants to reward itself with a special birthday present by bringing back Tevez. Indeed Tevez is just one of many players the club wants to bring back for the new season as Jesús Alberto Dátolo from Clube Atlético Mineiro is also rumoured to return to Boca. The fact that Tevez is willing to return to Boca means that Boca has a real chance in landing the player, and this move would also open the door to other big name signings. The problem, however, is the fact that Tevez is not a free agent and is still under contract at Juventus until June 2016. Juventus will therefore need to ask a substantial transfer sum for Tevez, who according to Transfermarkt is valued €23 million. Keeping the current economic situation in Argentina in mind it is questionable whether Boca can afford such a luxury. Juventus already turned down an offer of €5 million made by Boca, and as Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport wrote on April 20 Juventus wants at least €9 million. This together with the fact that Tevez is asking for a reported €4 million salary means the club would most likely require help from external investors to pay both the transfer and his salary. Another stumbling block is the fact that Juventus has already stated that they want to Tevez until the end of his contract. But Tevez may force his way out of Italy as he has done before when he forced his transfers from Corinthians to West Ham and later from Manchester City to Juventus. With this history in mind Juventus may sell the player as an unhappy Tevez could be precarious to a positive atmosphere in the dressing room. As mentioned above Carlos Tevez has always been frank about wanting sign for his boyhood team, and although his agent has recently denied that Tevez could move to Boca at the end of the season, this could just be a ruse to ensure that both the player and the club can focus on the tasks still at hand for the reminder of what maybe be his last season at Juventus.
