The 32-year-old is currently back in his homeland with Boca, but his future was called into question after they crashed out Copa Libertadores semi-finals at the hands of minnows Independiente del Valle.

Tevez admits he considered quitting, while he also claims to have taken a call from Blues boss Antonio Conte regards a potential switch to Stamford Bridge.

However he turned it down and will carry on with Boca.

“After the loss [to Independiente] we had two days off. I was shaken, like everyone at home. I returned to training and I said ‘That’s it, it’s passed’,” he said.

“But I was without any motivation. At that moment I thought about a lot of things, even to leave football. It was leave football or continue at Boca.

“One day later Conte called me to go to Chelsea, and I told him no. I wasn’t in a good way, and I had to think about a lot of things. It was Boca or retire.”
