Boca Juniors president Mauricio Macri has rejected a huge bid from Bayern Munich for Carlos Tevez.
Tevez, widely regarded ass his country’s brightest prospectwas the subject of a $17 million bid from the German champions, but Macri is adamant that the player is going nowhere for the time being.
“Bayern Munich made us an official offer for Tevez while we had to stop in Italy from our trip back from Japan,” said Macri.
“They have offered us $17 million but I must say that Boca will not sell Tevez at the moment.
“Despite the fact that we could make our club’s financial situation even better than how it is at this moment, we want to keep the player for longer.
“Tevez is the clearest talent that Argentinian football has produced since Diego Maradona. This is something that will surely be confirmed in the next two years.”
Macri’s chances of retaining Tevez have been helped by the player’s desire to stay with Boca.
“If Macri makes sure that he makes my family live in aÊgood way in the future I prefer not to be transferred, ever,” said Tevez.
“I would stay forever at Boca but the club has to confirm to me that my family will always have everything they need.”
