Tevez: I've not decided if I'll stay at Juventus

The Argentina international still has a year to run on his contract with the Bianconeri but fully intends to finish his career at Boca Juniors

Carlos Tevez has called for an end to the constant speculation surrounding his future at Juventus yet admitted that he has yet to decide if he will stay in Turin beyond the summer.

The Argentina international has made it clear that he intends to return to Boca Juniors, his first professional club, when his current contract with the Italian champions expires next year.

However, Boca president Daniel Angelici made headlines when he claimed that the Buenos Aires club were "close to bringing Carlos home".

The striker's agent dismissed the claim, insisting that his client fully intends to honour his contract with Juve, but the rumour mill went into overdrive again on Saturday when Tevez celebrated his strike in a 2-0 win over Lazio with a chicken dance, which was interpreted as a reference to a crucial goal for Boca in a Copa Libertadores semi-final clash with great rivals River Plate in 2004.

The 31-year-old promptly rubbished the link and admitted that he has grown weary of all of the speculation over his next move.

"That game [against River] does not come into it. I celebrated like that because I promised my people that I would and I will do the same if I score against Monaco [on Wednesday]," Tevez told Sky Sport Italia.

"As for my future, enough! It's not right to speak about me. Juve are what count.

"Both Juve and I are going through an extraordinary moment and I'm thinking only of Juve right now.

"I don't know if I will leave. I've not yet decided what to do.

"But it's not right to speak about it now and, as I said, the Bianconeri fans will be the first to know what I decide."

Tevez, who joined Juve from Manchester City in 2013, is the top scorer in Serie A this season, with his strike against Lazio taking his goals tally to 18 in 28 games.
