Carlos Tevez rejects Man City contract extension for Boca Juniors
Carlos Tevez is set to return to his former club Boca Juniors after snubbing a contract extension offer from Manchester City. The Argentinean striker, who ran amidst controversies of similar nature just about a year ago, has finally confirmed he has no desire to continue his football career in the English Premier League.
The Daily Mirror reports Carlos Tevez has rejected the contract offer and announced he would like to finish his career where it started. The Argentina international’s contract with Chelsea is due to expire in the summer of 2014. Henceforth, Carlos Tevez would join Boca Juniors for the 2014-15 season.
Earlier this week, Carlos Tevez was considering extending his stay at Manchester City, which is why the news of his future exit has come as quite a surprise. The 28-year-old striker has enjoyed a successful but controversial spell at the Eastlands, which includes becoming the top goal scorer and the most out of favor player at the club.
Carlos Tevez fell out of favor in Roberto Mancini’s eyes in November of 2011 after a training ground bust-up and a disobedient leave to go back home, Argentina. Since offering an olive branch to the manager in 2012, Carlos Tevez has been recording good form for Manchester City on a regular basis.
Nonetheless, it appears as if Carlos Tevez wants nothing to do with the success he has achieved in the Premier League. Top notch clubs from across Europe would be willing to sign him in, but the striker believes it will soon be time to hit back home.
“I've got a year left on my contract at Manchester City and they want me to sign for two more seasons,” Carlos Tevez told the Mirror. “I would prefer to return home, but it is very difficult because City won't let me leave for nothing.
“I will stay in Europe for another two years and then go back. Boca's president always says the door is open for me to rejoin them and I am dying to pull on their shirt once more.
“I want to end my career with them. It is my dream and the dream of my family as well. I would love to be playing for them against River Plate. I’d prefer that to City's game against Fulham. But I am under contract and have to be here in England.”
