Tevez rejects Chelsea offer.

Carlos Tevez has confirmed Chelsea are trying their best to bring him back to English Premier League.

The Argentine striker who played for both the Manchester clubs, is currently back in his homeland with Boca Juniors after leaving European giants Juventus last summer.

There had been plenty of speculation that the 32-year-old could be persuaded to return to Europe this summer and even lucrative deals were on the table.

West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan revealed he was trying to rope in the forward but a move broke down over his wage demands.

Tevez had reportedly demanded £250,000 a week to rejoin West Ham from Boca Juniors. Last week he was also linked to both Napoli and Inter Milan along with a third report that insisted he would return to Brazilian side Corinthians.

The former Argentina striker joined West Ham in 2006 along with Javier Mascherano from Brazilian club Corinthians.

Tevez worked under Antonio Conte at Juventus and there was talk that the Italian coach may try to tempt him back.

And the striker has confirmed that contact has been made between player and club.

But Tevez does not want to return to Europe.

“I’m fine at Boca,” he told Corriere dello Sport.

“Indeed my idea, my dream is to finish my career as a player in this wonderful club.

“Europe? Yes, it’s true Napoli and Chelsea seek me, but I repeat what I said before. My desire is to stay at Boca until I retire.”

Tevez became a cult hero in east London when he helped save the club from relegation in 2007, and Premier League successes with United and City followed.

He left for Juve in 2013 when new Chelsea boss Conte was in charge and went on to win back-to-back Serie A titles.
