Juventus striker Carlos Tevez is the latest big name in world football to be linked with a move to Major League Soccer for the next stage of his career.
Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl revealed that sources have told him Tevez is keen on a move stateside, and with just one year left on his current contract, that move could come soon.
The 31-year-old Argentina striker leads Serie A in goals this season with 20 and also netted the crucial penalty in his side’s Champions League semifinal first-leg win against Real Madrid last week.
The former Manchester United and Manchester City star would be a huge coup for MLS if he were to join the league, but a move this summer would cost a hefty transfer fee, even with just one year left on his contract.
Juventus have already done business with MLS after seeing Sebastian Giovinco join Toronto FC earlier this year and could also wave goodbye to Tevez when his contract expires next season.
Tevez has long been linked with a return to his homeland with Boca Juniors continuously mentioned as the club he wants to retire at, but a move to MLS would keep him nearer his home, and would allow him to play in one of the league’s most exciting leagues.
