Report: Carlos Tevez to join Boca Juniors

June 17, 2015 - 8:06 pm

Carlos Tevez is on the verge of completing a move to Boca Juniors but its unclear how much Juve will ask for the player.

The first reports from Italy centred on a story from Mediaset who suggested Tevez has agreed a three-year deal with his boyhood club, Boca Juniors. Boca president Daniel Angelici flew to Chile to meet with the player earlier this week where he’s currently representing Argentina at the Copa America.

Mediaset reported that Juve are asking for €5m to let the player leave one year ahead of schedule, but it’s suggested Boca may try and use players in the exchange.

Juve director Pavel Nedved all but confirmed that the player is on his way out of the club in an interview earlier today.

“I think Tevez wants to go home,” he told,

“This year he has given so much, but he appears to have made his decision now. He gave a great deal in these seasons for Juve and this year practically never held back.”

Tevez played 96 games for Juventus scoring 50 goals in his two seasons at the club.

    i doubt we wil get anywhere close to 5m for Tevez. Boca are broke. they want to give us players in place of money.

    Either way, Tevez is gone. Not happy about it to be honest. We bought him back from the brink, gave him the 10 shirt and a whole lot of love. He couldn;t even stick out one more season. If he’s homesick, fair enough, but be up front. why change your mind now after commiting to the club in May ? basta

      I don’t understand why he signed for 3 years if he wants to leave after 2?

        he’s not a man of his word. We should have kept that at the back of our minds after he joined from Man City

      I am very grateful for what he has brought to this club but at the same time he too should be grateful to the club for what they gave him. A revitalized career and a completely new reputation as a class act. Tough to see him go this way and I would’ve hoped that he would stay one more year but it seems like him and management are parting on good terms. Grazie Carlitos per tutto che hai fatto per questo club.

    I believe Juve should let Tevez go. We should look forward to selling Vidal as well.

    Things seem to be going pretty well, even with Tevez going… but Llorente and Ogbonna need to go too.
    Zaza and Berardi should improve the front line with Dybala. I can’t wait to see the partnerships that could be forged with Morata,Dybala,Zaza,Berardi, and hopefully not Llorente but someone else… (Lippi said all great teams should have 5 top strikers)

    In Defense Rugani should be a great addition ( Varane would be nice too) but we do need better options in the full-back positions. I hope for Giulio Donati as back-up for Lichtsteiner (Even though we’re not linked with him) and Ricardo Rodriguez as a replacement for Evra/Asamoah in LB.

    As for GK, we could use someone young with great reflexes like Neto. Though Buffon’s experience and placement is out of this world, with nothing to his fault though, his body doesn’t move as fast as his brain anymore. I think Neto would be a good understudy.(I used to like Handanovic before he joined Merda)

    Our midfield is almost perfect, we just have to make sure we manage to keep them all. Although a good Trequa like Oscar or Isco wouldn’t hurt and Verratti would just add to perfection.

    Now that know my demands, please pass on the message to Mr.Marotta and Mr.Paratici.

      I like it bud but Ricardo Rodriguez is a pipe dream for this summer (Just resigned until 2019 and has CL next year), however I think he has a buyout next summer for 35m! I would do that for a player of his quality, the only problem is others will be after him too and can offer higher wages. Also, I don’t see Neto as the GK of the future. I think he is here to work with Buffon and the best GK coach in the whole world at Juve. He will get decent amount of games and will warm the seat until one of our younger guys are ready (I’m thinking Leali). Ps I am dying to see Verratti in black and white

    But some of these rumors of higuain, Rvp, Oscar, Jovetic etc. Is making me sick dont want any of the following.

        I dont hate him at all.. But our nidfield is packed as is. Pereyra was top rate this season and can certainly fill in rhw cam rolw with no trouble

          I agree that Pereyra had a great season and hopefully will keep progressing, but the midfielders we have are almost all box to box or destroyer types. I don’t want to see Vidal in the treq role again this year. I think having pereyra and another top guy for that role will help us a lot. Oscar’s play suits serie a more than the PL and he contributes a lot defensively too. Keep in mind he is still only 23 i think! Plus as we phase pirlo out we will need creativity from somewhere else

    Good luck to Tevez in Argentina, although we won’t understand why he would leave now after an incredible season (performance wise), and a relatively not Old age (31). I just hope that our attack won’t be a mess without an anchor like him, the closest in our hands is Zaza (fighter, poacher, and good physicality). I just can’t wait, there’ll be a lot of surprises:

    1. Who’ll be the next N.10?
    2. Will Dybala prove his worth?
    3. What’s the forward line going to be like? (Mandzukic/Morata & Dybala/Zaza)?
    4. When will we stop recruiting for our Midfield army?
    5. Will we actually get a play-maker? (Oscar/De Bruyne/Jovetic/Calhanoglu/etc.)

    6. How bad should the Adidas kit be? (even though we’ll have the double badges)

    So many question, only 2 men have the answers….

      About the number 10, I’d give it to Morata, to show him how much we value him. Morata has evolved so much this season, scoring twice against Madrid, once against Barca, supplying good goals in the league too, he’s fit to take the responsibility.

      If not Morata, it would have to go to Berardi or Dybala, but not right away. They have big enough shoes to fill as it is already, let them develop at least a season before putting that number 10 on their back. That’s how I see it, I don’t think it would make sense to hand it to Buffon or Marchisio, it doesn’t suit their role and they both have their own iconic number

      I hope Dybala is going to become as big as Morata and then both to grow beyond that (SuperSaiyan!!)

      Also hoping for a CAM (Berardi could do it imo) and very excited for the next season already.

      Final note, I don’t think the Adidas shirts will be so very bad.. (fingers crossed they don’t fuck it up xD)

        I like Morata with the #9! I think it suits his role more and I agree with you for them to just leave it out for a year and hopefully Berardi can earn it for us next year and for many years to come! (I get attached to our young italians too easily)

          BelgianJuventino June 18, 2015 at 1:24 pm

          Morata is fine with the 9 but he’s the only realistic player to wear it at this point imo. If not him I’d like Berardi to have it, but giving it straight away could kill him, he will have enough pressure on him as it is :p

    BelgianJuventino June 18, 2015 at 8:22 am

    Well, goodbye Tevez.. It was a great time together. You gave us the attack force we craved for years, suffering mediocrity far too long.. From Iaquinta and the ageing Trezeguet to Amauri, Borriello, Anelka, Toni, Matri, Bendtner and god I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few, to you.

    You gave us what we wanted from a number 10 as well. You took the responsibility and you handled it all perfectly. Great skills on the field and a great personality besides it, not once did you go wrong. Too bad you don’t stick around longer, as all Juve fans hold you dear after our two seasons together.

    You’re too good to be playing in the Argentinean league, but we all understand you want to be home. Wish you all the best and I really hope you will finish your career at your boyhood club Boca Juniors.

    Please write an open letter to us, to give us some more insight in this deal. I would like to read this, and I’m sure many others as well.

    Forza Tevez

    Grazie Carlitos you gave everything to this shirt and to us fans. I really hoped for you to stay one more year but i repect your desition (if you would have gone to another team in europe i would have been very very dissapointed).

    I agree with BelgianJuventino i expect at least a short letter to Juve fans from Carlitos saying his piece.

    At first i was nervous for this news but now i’m just excited about next season, especially if we get Oscar :).

      Why do you think about that? I actually welcome it. As long as we dont pay too much for him. He was very good in Bayern. But he is VERY different from Tevez.
