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.
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.”
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.
