Former Manchester City and Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has told reporters in Italy that Chelsea are interested in signing him.
As per a report from Corriere dello Sport , the 32-year-old said that Chelsea, along with Serie A club Napoli, have interest in signing him, but he is happy to see out the remainder of his career with Boca Juniours.
“I feel really good at Boca, better, my idea, my dream is to end my career in this sensational club. It’s true, Napoli and Chelsea are following me but, I repeat, my will is to remain at Boca until I retire.”
Tevez knows the Premier League very well after spells with the two Manchester-based clubs and
West Ham , and despite him coming to the latter stages of his career, he still could have been valuable to Antonio Conte, but it looks like a transfer is highly unlikely.
West Ham ha enquired about taking him back but were reportedly put off by his wage demands which were apparently £250,000-per-week.
If that is the case, Chelsea may well have been willing to pay him a figure close to that mark, but if he really does have his heart set on staying in Argentina then that’s almost irrelevant at this point.
