Carlos Tevez 'To Hold Talks With Tottenham Boss Antonio Conte Over Shock Return To The Premier League'
| Last updated
Carlos Tevez is set to hold talks with Tottenham manager Antonio Conte next week over a potential return to the Premier League.
Tevez, 38, has been without a club since leaving Boca Juniors in July but the former Argentina international has not officially retired from football.
Tevez has previously played for West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City, but has not played in the Premier League since leaving the Etihad in 2013.
However, he could now be in line for a shock return to English football.
According to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, Tevez is set to meet with Conte and his coaching staff at Tottenham's training ground next week.
Conte previously signed Tevez from Manchester City when he was manager of Juventus in 2013.
The pair spent just a single season together in Turin before Conte left to become manager of the Italian national side.
But he is now reportedly considering a reunion with the striker, who won the Premier League twice with United and once with City during his time in English football.
Tevez has also visited a number of Italian clubs, fuelling speculation he could return to Serie A instead.
After visiting his former club Juventus and Inter Milan, Tevez was also spotted at AC Milan's training ground - embracing manager Stefano Pioli and club legend Paulo Maldini.
Tevez has also been linked with a move to the MLS, with DC United, Minnesota United and Orlando City reportedly interested in the striker.
Tottenham previously attempted to sign Tevez from Manchester City in 2012 when Harry Redknapp was manager.
He said at the time: "I said to the chairman 'can you get me Carlos Tevez?'
"Daniel (Levy) made some enquiries, but it wasn't doable. If he could have done it, he would have.
"He (Levy) would have loved Tevez, but it wasn't possible because his wages are £200,000 a week. It's not possible at Tottenham to buy him."
Tevez joined West Ham in a controversial move from Corinthians in the summer of 2006 and would go on to help the London club avoid relegation that season.
He would later join Manchester United on a two-year loan, winning both the Premier League and Champions League during his time at the club.
Tevez would cross the city to join rivals Manchester City in 2009 for a then British transfer record of £47m.
He would go on to score 73 goals in 148 games for City, helping the club to their first ever Premier League title in the 2011-12 campaign.
In total, Tevez managed 84 goals in 202 games during his time in the Premier League and has scored 237 goals in 607 games over the course of his professional career.
