Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has admitted he hopes to end his career by returning to former club Boca Juniors.

Argentina international Tevez built his reputation at Boca, making his debut at the age of 16, before leaving the club to move to Brazilian outfit Corinthians in 2004.

He has spoken fondly about Boca, but for the moment is happy with life at Manchester City, where he courted controversy last season, missing five months following a row with boss Roberto Mancini.

"My biggest wish is to finish my career in the Boca shirt," he told FoxSports. "I am still thinking the same as when I left, I want to retire here. I am here for whatever Boca need.

"But the truth is that I finished the season very happy in England. I am feeling good, I have no desire to be thinking that I want to leave, my family are happy."

Tevez returned to City towards the end of the last Premier League season, and played his part as Mancini's men lifted the title.
