Carlos Tevez at Boca Juniors, Manchester City worried ahead of transfer window – EPL news
The English Premier League golden boot award winner, Carlos Tevez, has intensified the speculations of his transfer away from Eastlands this summer after reaching Boca Juniors on Sunday. In spite of Manchester City unwilling to let their star striker go,
Tevez seems keen to join Boca Juniors, the club from where he first arrived in England.
The little Argentine, who believes joining his first club will help him remaining closer to his family, was given a warm welcome by huge Boca Juniors fans the moment he reached the Bombonera, Boca’s home ground. Even though he was not there to hold transfer
talks, it must have left Roberto Mancini in a distress. He appreciated the goodwill gesture provided by the Boca Juniors faithful, who displayed a replica shirt with his name and number written on it.
In the recently concluded 2010/11 English Premier League campaign, Tevez topped the English Premier League charts with 21 goals. Real Madrid and Inter Milan have emerged as the main contenders to recruit the services of the striker. The Talismanic forward
was eager to cut short his stay at Eastlands, as he had already submitted a transfer request earlier in the season only to take it back.
Boca Juniors vice-president, Juan Carlos Crespi, is eager to bring the prodigal son back to the club, whom he helped capture a Primera Division title, a Copa Libertadores, a Copa Sudamericana and an Intercontinental Cup. “I want to see Tevez play for Boca.
There is a good chance” Carlos added.
The 27-year-old’s splendid strikes helped Manchester City break their 35-year trophy draught. Roberto Mancini’s men won the FA Cup and sealed a place in the next season’s UEFA Champions League courtesy Tevez’s brilliance. The former West Ham United and Manchester
United player was signed by Manchester City on July 14, 2009, on a five-year contract.
When asked about Boca Juniors lining up a bid and the chances of him returning to his former club, the Argentine striker replied, “To go back to Boca Juniors would be beautiful but it is very difficult. Spoke to (Boca midfielder Juan) Roman Riquelme and,
messing around, we agreed I would go back one day. But if we’re speaking seriously, financial issues would make my return difficult.”
Meanwhile, the Manchester City manager is hopeful that the skipper would prolong his spell at Eastlands, especially with the club winning the FA cup and playing in the Champions League next season.
