Boca Juniors president Daniel Angelici says Carlos Tevez has given him his word that he will rejoin the club before he retires.
The 30-year-old striker is currently enjoying a fine debut season in Serie A with Juventus and is under contract to the Italian champions until 2016.
Consequently, while Angelici is not expecting Tevez to make an immediate return to the Bombonera, he is confident that the forward will be back before he hangs up his boots.
"I speak often with Carlos and he has given me his word that sooner or later he will return here," the Boca supremo told Fox Sports. "However, he will not be our next signing, given that he has a contract with Juventus."
Angelici added in an interview with Ole, though, that Tevez wants to end his playing days where they began.
"He has always said it to me that he wants to finish his career with Boca," he said. "He's very connected to the club. I'm convinced that he will close out his career in our jersey."
After joining Boca from All Boys, Tevez progressed through the youth team ranks and spent three seasons in the first team before leaving for Corinthians in 2004.
