Carlos Tévez has ruled out a return to Boca Juniors in the near future, with the Manchester City forward yet to be offered a new deal at the Eastlands outfit.

The Argentina international has rediscovered some of his best form this season for the Citizens, with a return of 11 goals in 25 Premier League appearances.

Tévez’s current City deal is set to expire at the end of next season, which has inevitably led to speculation that the 29-year-old could return to his native Argentina in the near future.

Despite admitting he would love to move back to his former club Boca, the forward expects to stay at City for now.

“I would die to return to Boca, my daughter asks me about that,” Tévez told Celeste y Blanca.

“But it’s very difficult at this moment, who would pay the transfer fee?

“When I didn’t play, City didn’t want to transfer me to Milan for €20m, so now that I am playing it’s even more difficult. I will be back [in Argentina] at the age of 33.”

Tévez also played down his chances of featuring for Argentina at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, with the City star not part of Alejandro Sabella’s plans.

“I don’t imagine myself playing in the World Cup,” he admitted.

“There are games have been played and I have been fine, but other players are recalled. I know that I am not in the plans of the coach Alejandro Sabella.

“Some time ago you [Celeste y Blanca] asked to the people if Tévez had to be in the national team and it was a 100 per cent positive, now it’s 50-50. If I don’t have the chance to be with the national team, I will be a supporter from where I am.”
