Carlos Tevez Turns Down Big Money Return To The Premier League

Carlos Tevez Turns Down Big Money Return To The Premier League

Carlos Tevez has turned down a huge offer from West Ham to remain with Boca Juniors.

The Argentinean striker played for the Hammers during the 2006/07 season, where his end of season surge of 7 goals in 10 games helped the club avoid relegation. However, he will not be returning to East London after sealing a move back to Corinthians, following a dispute with the Boca board.

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan said the club offered the former Manchester United and Juventus man £150,000-a-week but Tevez wanted significantly more than that.

"We tried to get Tevez but he wanted £250,000 a week. In his last year at Juventus he was great. But 250 grand a week?

"He'll probably stay where he is now, but he doesn't pay a lot of tax down there.

All this business 'I love West Ham.' Well, it's 'I love West Ham if they give me 250 grand a week.' So how much love is that for West Ham?"

"I actually offered him 150 grand a week to come back plus bonuses.

"I thought that was an incredible offer for someone who loves West Ham. It wasn't a publicity stunt, I saw him being our No.1 striker.

"I was hoping he would reproduce what he did at Juventus a year ago. He was a fantastic player. But where do you draw the line with what you are prepared to pay?"
