Juventus have announced the departure of Carlos Tevez to Boca Juniors for a transfer fee of £4.6million.

After months of speculation, the Serie A club officially confirmed Tevez, who had one year remaining on his contract, will be heading back to La Bombonera where he started his career as a teenager.

He joined Juve in 2013 after a seven-year spell in England with West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City which yielded three Premier League titles.

A statement from Juventus read: "Tevez leaves after two magnificent seasons, returning to his homeland to sign for Boca Juniors.

"Juventus FC have agreed with Boca Juniors for the definite transfer of the registration rights of Tevez for a consideration of 6.5 million euro to be paid on December 15, 2016 in a sole installment."

He struck 20 league goals during the 2014-15 campaign and also set up seven more to help the club clinch their fourth successive Serie A title.
