Boca Juniors legend Diego Maradona has welcomed Carlos Tevez to the club with rumours the Juventus striker could return to La Bombonera.

Tevez, 31, struck 20 Serie A goals last season and has also been linked with Liverpool, Atletico Madrid and Paris St-Germain.

The striker, who is currently with Argentina at the Copa America, played for Boca from 2001 until 2004.

"Welcome home Carlos Tevez," Maradona posted on Facebook.

Maradona was vice-president of Boca in 2005 and also managed Tevez during his spell as Argentina manager between 2008 and 2010.

Boca would be likely to have to pay a substantial fee as the former West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City player is under contract at the Champions League finalists until next summer.

Tevez, who has won three league titles in England and two in Italy, scored 38 goals in 110 games during his first spell at Boca, where he won the league in 2003 and was voted South American Player of the Year for three straight seasons.

He left for Brazilian side Corinthians before the 2005 season, and moved to West Ham the following year.
