CARLOS Tevez has completed his move from Juventus to Boca Juniors, the Argentinian club have announced.

Boca announced the deal during Argentina’s Copa America quarter-final penalty shootout victory against Colombia, in which Tevez scored the winning spot kick.

Tevez began his career at Boca as a teenager before moving to Brazilian side Corinthians in 2005 and the Buenos Aires club had repeatedly been linked with a move for the 31-year-old striker in recent months.

Paris St Germain, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid had also been rumoured to be interested in acquiring Tevez’s services but Boca have won the race for his signature.

“It is a day of joy and great satisfaction,” Boca president Daniel Angelici told the club’s official Facebook page.

“The return of Carlos Tevez in an extraordinary moment of his career is fantastic news for all partners and supporters of Boca and Argentine football.

“The presence of Carlos will give another leap in quality to the great squad we have.”

Tevez scored 20 league goals to help Juve clinch their fourth straight Serie A title during the recently completed campaign, and notched seven more in 13 games as the Bianconeri reached the Champions League final.

He joined the Turin giants in a £10million deal in 2013 after a seven-year spell in England with West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City which yielded three Premier League titles.
