Carlos Tevez has returned to Boca Juniors for a third stint with his boyhood team.

The former Manchester United and Manchester City forward returns to the club after an unsuccessful spell with Shanghai Shenhua where, despite earning a reported £650,000 per week, the Argentine branded Chinese football as being 50 years behind Europe and South America.

The 33-year-old, who previously played for Boca between 2001-04 and 2015-16, was welcomed by a message on the club's official Twitter account, which read: "Tevez came home! Today he joined Guillermo in Cardales and has already trained with his teammates. #VamosBoca."

The Chinese club announced the signing of Tevez from Argentinian side Boca Juniors on Thursday in a statement on their official website.

Shanghai are reported to have agreed a deal worth around £71.6m for the forward, including a salary of £615,000 a week over two years.

The statement said:

"Shanghai Greenland Shenhua FC reached a transfer agreement with Argentina Club Atletico Boca Juniors. Carlos Alberto Tevez is officially joined Shanghai Shenhua,"

Thirty-two-year-old Tevez, who has also played for Corinthians, West Ham and Juventus, will play for Gus Poyet's side next season after scoring 25 goals in 56 matches for Boca Juniors.

Shanghai finished fourth in last year's Chinese Super League standings.

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 euro to be paid on December 15, 2016 in a sole instalment."

Boca announced the deal during Argentina's Copa America quarter-final penalty shootout victory against Colombia, in which Tevez scored the winning spot kick.

Tevez began his career at Boca as a teenager before moving to Brazilian side Corinthians in 2005 and the Buenos Aires club had repeatedly been linked with a move for the 31-year-old striker in recent months.

Paris St Germain, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid had also been rumoured to be interested in acquiring Tevez's services but Boca have won the race for his signature.

Boca president Daniel Angelici told the club's official Facebook page.

It is a day of joy and great satisfaction. The return of Carlos Tevez in an extraordinary moment of his career is fantastic news for all partners and supporters of Boca and Argentine football.

The presence of Carlos will give another leap in quality to the great squad we have.

– Boca president Daniel Angelici

The footballer has admitted driving while disqualified.

Tevez was originally banned for failing to respond to police letters over speeding tickets.

He insisted he hadn't understood them.

The striker's lawyer insists a lengthy period of disqualification has "already been served" and that he should face a "community penalty."
