FORMER Manchester United and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has signed a new contract – at the ripe old age of 36.
The Argentinian forward has completed the deal with his boyhood favourites Boca Juniors.
Tevez helped Boca seal their 34th Argentinian title in March.

The striker admitted the only club he would return to in England was West Ham – after helping them escape relegation in 2007.
His contract with the Buenos Aires-based Boca Juniors had ended in June.
But he is believed to have signed a new one-season deal.
Tevez was also linked with a move to old club Corinthians.
The forward had returned to Boca for a third spell after a disastrous transfer to Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua in 2017 on a £650,000-a-week deal.
Tevez, who has 76 caps for Argentina, signed for United in 2007 and had two years there, winning the Champions League in 2008 and the Premier League in 2008 and 2009.
But the Argentine’s most successful club stint in the Prem came during his first two seasons at Man City.
Tevez scored 47 goals between 2009 and 2012 and captained his side to an FA Cup final win against Stoke in 2011.
He had indicated he would stay at Boca to have another shot at South America’s version of the Champions League.
He said last month: “I’m going to stay at Boca, I want another chance at the Libertadores.”
