Tevez: I Almost Joined Atletico Madrid

share on:

Carlos Tevez has stated he almost joined Atletico Madrid before picking Boca Juniors.

Tevez spent two seasons at Juventus and won a brace of scudettos, making it clear he wanted to return home.

However, the prospect of playing with Atletico under Simeone was tempting.

“[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.”
