“It’s True” – Argentinean Striker Confirms Chelsea Interest
An Argentinean international striker claims that Chelsea want to sign him this summer but insists he’s ready to snub their advances and stay where he is.
The summer transfer window is in full swing so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Chelsea are linked with Carlos Tevez…
Former Manchester United and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez claims that Chelsea want to sign him this summer but insists he’s happy to stay with Boca Juniors, according to Sky Sports News.
Tevez is well-known in England having played for West Ham before joining United in 2007 where he won a whole host of honours including two Premier League titles and the Champions League.
The Argentinean international then continued his success having joined Manchester City in 2009 after he claimed his third Premier League title as well as his first FA Cup during a four-year stint at the Etihad.
Another successful two-year spell in Italy with Serie A champions Juventus eventually led to Tevez returning to his homeland in 2015 after he moved back to Boca Juniors where he began his career.
It seems the 32-year-old has been offered the chance to return to Europe as Tevez has now been quoted by Sky Sports News as saying that Chelsea and Napoli have both shown an interest in signing him this summer.
However, it looks like the Blues will have look elsewhere in their search for another striker as Tevez insists he has snubbed their advances and made it clear he plans to retire with Boca Juniros.
“I’m fine at Boca. 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.”
New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was in charge at Juventus when Tevez moved to Turin in 2013 and the pair enjoyed great success together after winning back-to-back Serie A titles and it seems the Italian tactician was keen for a reunion at Stamford Bridge.

Conte has already signed Michy Batshuayi from Marseille but it looks like he’ll have to move on to other targets if he wants to bring in further attacking reinforcements with Tevez intent on remaining in Argentina.
