Boca Juniors director wants Carlos Tevez to return to the Bombonera

The Xeneixe official was certain that a deal could be made to bring Carlitos back to Argentina to rejoin the club he left in 2004
A leading Boca Juniors director has revealed the club's desire to repatriate Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, while affirming that the Xeneixe legend has a good chance of returning to the Bombonera for 2011-12.

'Carlitos' is a darling of the Boca terraces after beginning his career in the club, and lifted the national championship, Copa Libertadores and the Intercontinental club during his three years as a first-team player.

With the striker looking almost certain to leave Manchester City during the European summer transfer window the Argentine outfit are keen to bring him back to his native country.

Vice-president Juan Carlos Crespi confirmed that he was a transfer target of the club when the current Clausura season came to an end.

"I want Tevez to come and play in Boca once more. There is a good chance that it could happen," the director told Radio America on Monday.

The player himself had previously stated that no-one from Boca had called him to enquire about a transfer possibility, and for now a move to Italy seems the most likely destination for the 27-year-old.
