Carlos Tevez confirmed he will sign a new deal at Boca Juniors but insists he is open to returning to former side West Ham.

Tevez is ready to play for Boca Juniors until the end of the season but still hasn’t decided on his future after that.

The 36-year-old’s contract will expire on Tuesday and the club confirmed earlier this week that they have offered him a 12-month extension.

Tevez spent a year at West Ham before moving on to play for Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus.

The Argentine is enjoying his third spell at Boca and insists he will remain at the Argentine giants, but he will only commit for another six months.

Tevez is leaving his long-term future open, but said he would fancy spending a few months back at the Hammers.

“If I had to go back to Europe I would go to West Ham for six months to be applauded,” he told Radio La Red.

“Or spend six months at Corinthians. I won’t rule anything out because I don’t want to be a slave to my words.”

It’s claimed that Boca have offered Tevez the largest contract they can afford but the 36-year-old claims he’s yet to receive any such offer but hopes to sort it all out soon.

“I hadn’t heard or seen anything. It came to me and obviously bothers me, but it should be discussed privately,” he said.

“Nothing happens, I understand the situation. If we have any difference with the subject of the contract we cannot make it public.

“It would be nice to fix it behind closed doors. There is not much that we have to fix, as I always said.”
