Carlos Tevez wants to unite Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in star-studded XI for his farewell game

FORMER Manchester City star Carlos Tevez wants to get Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi together in the same team for his star-studded finale.

The striker is putting together a match as brings to and end his 19-year career as a professional – and has revealed his favourite time abroad was at West Ham.

Carlo Tevez and Cristiano Ronaldo were part of a thrilling Man Utd frontline, winning the Prem and Champions League double in 2008

Tevez, 36, will remain at Argentine club Boca Juniors for another six months.

He then hopes to play a special testimonial featuring his countryman Messi and Portugal superstar Ronaldo.

This match could feature an incredible line-up of stars.

The former Manchester United and West Ham forward is also hoping ex-Red Devils Wayne Rooney, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand and Gabriel Heinze will feature, as well as current Old Trafford star Paul Pogba.

Tevez told Radio La Red in Argentina: “If I had to assemble the team it would consist of [Gianluigi] Buffon, Hugo Ibarra, Rio Ferdinand, Gabriel Heinze, Patrice Evra, Andrea Pirlo, Paul Scholes, Paul Pogba, Cristiano [Ronaldo], Leo Messi and Wayne Rooney.

“I leave all possibilities open [about my future], as I do not want to be a slave to my words.

“Of course, in Argentina [there’s] only Boca [for me].

“But I would like to return to West Ham to be applauded for six months.

“Of the teams I played in Europe, I love them the most.”

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo could be part of a dream team for Carlos Tevez’ testimonial

Tevez played for the Hammers in 2006/07, helping Alan Pardew’s men escape the drop.

It proved controversial though as a panel concluded there were irregularities over the signing.

Tevez’ goals ultimately relegated Sheffield United and the Irons later paid a £20million out-of-court settlement to the Blades.

The Argentine played for United from 2007-2009 before a shock move to rivals City, where he spent four years.
