Juventus have bid farewell to Carlos Tevez by announcing the Argentina international striker has joined Boca Juniors for a €6.5million transfer fee.

Tevez, who began his career at Boca as a teenager, had one year left on his contract with the Turin giants.

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 Juventus 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 €6.5million to be paid on December 15, 2016 in a sole instalment."

Tevez was Juve's top scorer in the past two seasons and was twice voted player of the season by the Bianconeri fans.

He struck 20 league goals during the 2014-15 campaign and also set up seven more to help Juve clinch their fourth straight Scudetto.

Tevez also won the Coppa Italia this past season and played a prominent role in helping Juve reach the Champions League final for the first time since 2003.

The 31-year-old recently competed at the Copa America in Chile, where Argentina finished runners-up to the host nation.

Juve also announced they have reached an agreement with Boca Juniors to acquire Argentinian winger Guido Vadala on loan until June 2017 for €3.5million.

The Italian giants will hold an option to make the deal permanent before the end of the 2016-17 campaign subject to a fee of 9.4million euro.

The 18-year-old Vadala has made one appearance for Boca's first team.
