Tevez rejects new City deal - report

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has rejected a contract extension from the club and is likely to return to his former club Boca Juniors next summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

Carlos Tevez endured a frustrating night as Manchester City's European campaign came to an end
Tevez claims he would like to finish his career where it began

Tevez, 28, claimed this week that he would consider signing on with City, but it is now reported he will complete his current contract - which expires in 2014 - and look to join Boca for the 2014/15 season.

The Argentina international has enjoyed a positive spell since returning to City's line-up last season after falling out with Roberto Mancini in 2011. 

But a desire to return home and the competition for places at the Etihad could see Tevez request a move to the club where he began his senior career.


"I've got a year left on my contract at ­Manchester City and they want me to sign for two more ­seasons," 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."
