Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez conceded a return to Argentina and Boca Juniors is a distant hope after rumours began to circle of his impending exit from Etihad Stadium.

Tevez has scored 11 goals in the Premier League this season but City's failure to successfully defend their league crown could force manager Roberto Mancini to make a number of changes to his squad.

However, in Tevez's case, the Argentine believes he will be out priced for a dream move back to his homeland.

"If it was down to me then I would return tomorrow because I will love Boca until I die," Tevez told Canal 9.

"Maybe I will return to Boca when I am 33. It's very difficult for any Argentinian club to pay Manchester City my market value.

"If Milan have offered 20 million Euros to Manchester City when I was in a worse moment of form then what would they pay now?"
