Former Manchester United and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has dumped Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins’ Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua and has rejoined his first club in Argentina Boca Juniors.
He was once reportedly the highest paid player in the world, earning €750,000 with the Chinese club.
Tevez, who will turn 34 next month, met with Boca coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto and immediately began pre-season training at the Los Cardales complex.
The Argentine club announced the return of Tevez on Friday with a picture of him working out alongside his team-mates.
“Tevez has come home!” the club said. “Today (Friday) he joined up with Guillermo’s squad at Cardales and he is training with his team-mates.”
Boca however did not give details of his contract or disclose if the Chinese club had been paid a transfer fee.
The move marks Tevez’s third stint at the Buenos Aires club whom he first signed for in 2001 and again in 2015.
The 2004 Athens Olympic gold medal winner with Argentina won the 2017 Chinese FA Cup with Shanghai Shenhua with Martins scoring in both legs of the final against Shanghai SIPG.
