'I'm not coming back!' - Tevez to turn down Chelsea, Napoli for Boca Juniors stay

Carlos Tevez has revealed that he will reject offers from a number of clubs in Europe to stay with Boca Juniors.

The Argentine striker has been linked with a sensational return to West Ham United while the likes of Chelsea and Napoli have also been credited with an interest.

Regarding the floating rumours, Tevez insists he has no plans to leave his beloved Boca anytime soon having returned to his boyhood club from Juventus last summer.

"I'm fine at Boca," said the 32, year-old as quoted by Italy's Corriere dello Sport.

"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."

The former Manchester United and Manchester City star added: "I'm not coming back."
