Carlos Tevez has told Corriere dello Sport that former boss Antonio Conte is keen on bringing him back to the Premier League with Chelsea, but insists he will see out his career at Boca Juniors.

Despite returning to his homeland last summer, Tevez has been strongly linked with a move back to Europe during this transfer window.

West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan recently claimed he had made a bid to take the 32-year-old back to the club, only to see the move break down due to wage demands.

Tevez remains a cult hero in east London from when he helped save the club from relegation in 2007.

Spells at Manchester United and Manchester City followed, before he left for Juventus in 2013 when new Chelsea boss Conte was in charge.

It seems that any hopes of a reunion with Conte are also off the table, despite the Argentine admitting that contact has been made by the Blues, as well as Serie A side Napoli, who are set to be in the market for a replacement for Gonzalo Higuain.

"I’m fine at Boca,’ he told 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."

Tevez's comments also appear to put an end to reports linking him with a move to Brazilian side Corinthians.
