Carlos Tevez cannot imagine leaving boyhood club Boca Juniors as the Argentina international considers a lucrative offer from the Chinese Super League.

Tevez is reportedly on the cusp of joining CSL powerhouse Shanghai Shenhua in a lucrative deal in January.

Amid growing speculation, Tevez insisted he will not be rushed into a decision as he weighs up his future, and he strongly dismissed reports he did not renew his daughter’s school enrolment in Buenos Aires, while denying he has been house hunting in Shanghai.

“Today my head is thinking that I will stay, but I am suffering,” Tevez told TyCSports. “I still do not imagine myself leaving Boca.

“I am aware of how important is everything that you transmit on and off the pitch.

“I think it’s time to think and it’s only me to take the decision. I know that my team-mates want me to stay, that the coach wants me to stay, but the decision is mine and when I have a cool head I’m going to think.

“I know it’s difficult and everyone expects an answer but I have to think well about it.
