Report: Liverpool-linked Carlos Tevez's family want Argentina return if he leaves Juventus

Boca Juniors president Daniel Angelici claims Carlos Tevez's family want to move back to Argentina.

Carlos Tevez, who won the domestic double with Juventus and reached the Champions League final this season, is leaning towards a transfer away from Turin, as per Sky Sports.

It appears that the 31-year-old has progressed with age, having enjoyed one of the finest seasons of his career performance-wise in 2014/15, scoring 29 goals in all competitions. Regardless of incoming transfer business being carried out by Juventus, Tevez leaving will weaken their attacking options next season.

Tevez has been linked with moves to Liverpool, as per Liverpool Echo, and Boca Juniors, as per ESPN, amid speculation that his future lies outside of Italy.

The former Manchester United, Manchester City and West Ham United striker would be a great addition to Liverpool, who need a prolific goalscorer next season if they have any chance of getting back into the Champions League.

However, Boca chief Angelici has now revealed that Tevez's family would rather the forward return to Argentina than England.

"We must be cautious, I've spoken with him [Tevez]," Angelici told TyC Sports.

"He still has a one-year contract with Juventus, one of the best clubs in Italy, which I respect.

"We've talked, and his family wants to come back after many years abroad, but Carlos must define his situation with Juventus. When he does, Boca will make our move.

"If it can't be done, then it will be June next year. We have to take things slowly, and not create false expectations. His head is with the national team, we still have time to talk.

"He's had offers from several European clubs, such as Atletico Madrid, as well as Juventus who'd like to extend his contract.

"What's certain is that when he does return to Argentina, the only club he'll play for is Boca."

Tevez has already had a very successful career in England winning three Premier League titles, split between Manchester United and City, one FA Cup, with the Blues, and a Champions League with the Red Devils in 2008.
