Since linking up at Boca Juniors' youth team in 2000, strikers Becchio and Tevez have gone in different directions.
While Tevez became an icon with Boca before making high-profile moves to Corinthians, West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City, Becchio scraped a living with Merida in the Spanish second division until he joined Leeds on a free transfer 28 months ago.
Becchio revealed: "Tevez was my friend when we were young together with Boca. He is a great player and is doing well for Manchester City.
"Now I want to play for Leeds in the Premier League against Carlos.
"And I am ready to sign a new contract because I see Leeds going into the Premier League, and I want to be part of that."
