Boca Juniors have confirmed the arrival of Carlos Tevez with Guido Vadalá set to join Juventus as part of the deal.
The move has been on the cards for some time now especially as Tevez has never hidden his desire to return to Argentina to play for his beloved Boca.
President Daniel Angelici released a statement on the clubs official website, declaring:
“This is a day of joy and enormous satisfaction, the return of Carlos Tevez, during an extraordinary moment of his career, is fantastic news for all the members and fans of Boca, plus for all of Argentine football.
“Carlos’ presence will allow the squad to take another huge leap forward in terms of quality.”
A further statement confirmed “Angelici agreed all terms with the directors of Juventus and lawyers from both clubs will finalise the details of the transfer.”
The original deal was expected to include a fee of €5m and creative midfielder Vadalá, however Angelici told ESPN yesterday that the club “would not be paying a single peso’ for the transfer of Tevez.
Instead, Juventus will get Vadalá on loan as well as options on a number of Boca prospects including Rodrigo Bentancur, Adrián Cubas and Franco Cristaldo.
