Juventus striker Tevez to make decision about future this week

BY foxsports • June 17, 2015

Juventus striker Carlos Tevez is set to make a decision regarding his future in the next few days, according to general director Giuseppe Marotta.

The Argentinian forward, who is currently competing at the Copa America in Chile, has been strongly linked with a return to Boca Juniors this summer.

Boca Juniors president Daniel Angelici travelled to Chile earlier this week to hold talks with Tevez, who is under contract with Juve for another season.

"Players are human beings and we have to respect their personal reasons," Marotta said. "The will of a player is crucial and the same goes for Tevez as it does for Pogba.

"Tevez has declared his wish to end his glorious career in Argentina.

"We are awaiting a response from him and we are ready to help him because it would be counter-productive to create an uncomfortable situation for both parties.

"We expect an answer from him before Saturday. If he decides to stay with us, we will be happy otherwise we will be sad but we will have great respect for what he has achieved."

Tevez, 31, joined Juve two years ago on a £10million transfer from Manchester City and has finished as the team's top scorer in his two campaigns in Italy.

The South American scored 20 goals and set up seven more in 32 league appearances to help Juve clinch their fourth straight Scudetto this campaign.

Tevez is also a reported target of PSG and Atletico Madrid but Marotta insists the striker will only leave Juve this summer to move to Argentina.

"Tevez to Atletico or PSG? We have given him the availability to leave because of a life choice," Marotta said." In other words, to return home and not to go for free to another European club.

"I'm certain that if he leaves it will be to go to Argentina."
