Boca Juniors coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto is keen for Carlos Tevez, who has reportedly received a lucrative offer from Shanghai Shenhua, to stay at the club.
Tevez returned to his boyhood club from Juventus last year and looked set to see out the rest of his career in his homeland.
However, he has recently received a lucrative proposal from China.
Boca boss Barros Schelotto is hopeful that former Man Utd and Man City forward will spurn interest from Shanghai to stay at the club.
“I hope that [Tevez] continues [at Boca]. He knows what we want, what we need, that we have built a team around him. Lastly, we would ask the Chinese to wait six months [for him],” he is quoted as saying in Marca.
Carlos Tevez scored twice in 30 minutes as Boca Juniors came from 2-1 down to beat River Plate 4-2 at El Monumental in Argentine ‘superclasico’ on Sunday.
The victory put Boca top of Primera A with 28 points from 13 matches.
“I had a great match,” said Tevez, who may have played his last superclasico as he mulls over a 40 million euro ($42.18 million) offer from China’s Shanghai Shenhua.
“The Boca fans know I would die for this shirt.”
