Argentina striker Carlos Tevez, quizzed over the chances of him returning to Boca Juniors, has no plans to sign a contract extension with Juventus.

“I said I wanted to fulfil my contract and that’s my idea, I’m not thinking of signing an extension because that’s not how I feel at the moment,” Tevez told reporters in Buenos Aires on Wednesday before returning to Turin from the year-end holidays.

“As I always said, my idea is to complete my contract. Everyone knows I said so from the moment I arrived at Juve,” the 30-year-old former West Ham United, Manchester United and Manchester City striker said.

Tevez, who has been in fine form since joining Juventus from City last year and earned an Argentina recall in October after a three-year international absence, said it was too soon for him to think of returning to his first club Boca.

“I have a year and a half left on my contract and it’s complicated to leave when you’re playing well at this level,” Tevez said.

“I have to take things calmly and enjoy and not go crazy with the idea of coming back (to Buenos Aires).”
