Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has hinted that he may exit the game prematurely.

The Argentine international has admitted that he may either retire of return to his homeland if Argentina can win next year's World Cup.

The 25-year old admits he is tired of so much football and says having it as the number one thing in his life has 'saturated' him.

"It crosses my mind to hang up my boots if we win the World Cup, although I have a contract until 2014," he told Argentinean newspaper Ole.

"It's complicated, there's my family, the desire to return to Boca Juniors, but I think about it.

"I'm a little tired of so much football, so much football…I want to enjoy my family a bit.

"I'm very keen to stop and get a bit of calm. I've already won a lot. Living for football has saturated me a lot."
