Carlos Tevez has told Juventus that he wants to leave the club and return to Boca Juniors this summer.
The Argentina striker has long made it clear he wants to finish his career in his homeland with the club for whom he made his debut in October 2001.
Despite having a year to run on his current contract in Turin, it is understood that Tevez has told the Juve hierarchy that he is keen to seal a transfer this summer.
Boca president Daniel Angelici admitted he had spoken to the former Manchester United man about a return but was keen to allow him to compete in the Copa America without distraction. "I want to be cautious with the arrival of Carlitos at Boca," he said. "You have to respect Juventus, the club where he still has a contract, but I'm sure Tevez will stay at Juve or return to Boca."
