Tevez's move 'home' to Boca falls through

Boca Juniors have been priced out of an audacious move to re-sign Carlos Tevez.

Buenos Aires-based Boca were considering a cheeky bid to bring Tevez back to the club, where he started his career as a 16-year-old, in an emergency loan move.

But the Argentinians have had to admit defeat, because of the Manchester City outcast's £250,000-a-week salary.

Boca were hoping that either Tevez would slash his wage demands or that City would subsidise his huge salary, but they have had to admit both are highly unlikely.

Brazil's Corinthians - another of Tevez's former clubs - are the only South American side with the money to sign the striker, and they claim they will renew their interest in the winter transfer window.

Juventus, who failed with a bid to sign Tevez in the summer, and AC Milan are also preparing bids for January.

The 27-year-old will finally learn his punishment for allegedly refusing to play against Bayern Munich when he appears before a City disciplinary hearing this week.
