DIEGO SIMEONE WANTS TEVEZ BACK IN EUROPE
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone wants Argentine veteran Carlos Tevez back in Europe to play next season.
According to reports TMW, Simeone is keen on the former Juventus, Manchester City and Manchester United player. Tevez who was omitted from the Argentina’s Copa America team currently playing the continental tournament, is currently with Boca Juniors and is due to remain there till June 2018, based on his current deal.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Pablo Simeone who is still pained with the second Champions League final game loss in three years to Real Madrid is desperately looking for a change to deal with the situation and is reported to find Tevez a player that fills that profile.
Tevez played for the Boca Juniors junior team then broke into the senior team with his impressive performance. He was then transferred to Corinthians in 2005 where he played until he joined Premier League side, West Ham. The diminutive striker then joined the star studded Manchester City squad in 2009 and went on to lift the Premier League title before joining Juventus in 2013. After his success with the club, helping them to UEFA Champions League final, he returned to his boyhood club but Simeone wants his back in Europe.
Tevez himself admitted that he was very close to moving to Atletico when he left Juventus. He claimed Simeone wanted him but he just wanted to return to Argentina. Tevez who is 32 years old seem likely not to return to Europe at least for football in a while. Simeone himself has French champions Paris Saint-Germain on his neck. PSG want him to replace current coach Laurent Blanc and are ready to offer Atletico Madrid 10 million Euros in order to release El Cholo's contract with Spanish club. Simeone is reported to likely remain in Spain at least for next season.
