Atletico Madrid was linked to a move for Carlos Tevez but he instead decided to return to Argentina with Boca Juniors.

Tevez moved back to Boca after two years with Juventus for a fee of €6.5 million. He signed for Juve from Manchester City in 2013 and scored 20 Serie A goals in 2014-15.

"[Diego Simeone] called me and I was excited about the idea," Tevez told Marca. "Playing in Spain is something that is pending in my career, but I could not say no to Boca. Last year the only offer I had in Spain was from Atletico, but before that [Real] Madrid expressed interest in me."
