BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — The president of Boca Juniors says Carlos Tevez is leaving Juventus to return to the Buenos Aires club.

Daniel Angelici, speaking Friday with ESPN Argentina, says Tevez “will sign the contract” when the Copa America ends next week. Tevez is playing with the Argentine national team in the South American championship.

Angelici said he was in Italy to iron out details of the deal.

Tevez was a fan favorite when he played for Boca in 2001-2004. He left to play for Brazil’s Corinthians, West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City in England, and Italy’s Juventus.

The 31-year-old Tevez has repeatedly said he wants to end his career with the famous Buenos Aires club.
