Man City's Tevez determined to return to Boca Juniors

Carlos Tevez says he will definitely head back to Boca Juniors once his Manchester City contract expires.

The Argentine striker is under contract at the Etihad Stadium for another 18 months but is determined to end his career with former club Boca when his days in Europe are up.

"I've got a year left on my contract at Manchester City and they want me to sign for two more seasons," he said in an interview in Argentina ahead of yesterday's 2-0 win over Fulham.

"I would prefer to return home, but it is very difficult because City won't let me leave for nothing.

"I will stay in Europe for another two years and then go back.

"Boca's president always says the door is open for me to rejoin them and I am dying to pull on their shirt once more.

"I want to end my career with them. It is my dream and the dream of my family as well. I would love to be playing for them against River Plate. I'd prefer that to City's game against Fulham.

"But I am under contract and have to be here in England."
