Carlos Tevez has rocked Juventus by revealing that he wants to leave the club at the end of the season and return to Argentina. The striker has always made clear that he hopes to finish his career at Boca Juniors in Argentina, but the move was not expected so soon.
Tevez is under contract through the end of next season but according to reports in Italy he has told the club’s hierarchy he wants to leave this summer.
However, Italian paper Corriere della Sera insist that the club will not stand in Tevez’s way, and that they have simply asked him to give his all until June.
Tevez’s international manager Tata Martino claims any potential move would have no bearing on the player’s Argentina future.
‘The most important thing for me is that Tevez continues to play as well as he is at the moment,’ Martino told Italian paper Tuttosport.
‘It doesn’t matter whether that’s at Juventus or Boca. Only he’ll know what’s best for his future.
‘I will say this, though: Juventus are a great team, but so are Boca Juniors. It wouldn’t be a step down.’
Who do you think Juve should sign to replace Tevez?
