The Argentine international has conceded on numerous occasions that he would like to retire at Boca, where he started his career as a professional footballer.
However, the 29-year-old has admitted that his former club would not be able to match Man City's asking price for his services.
"I would die to return to Boca, my daughter asks me about that," he told Celeste y Blanca. "But it's very difficult at this moment, who would pay the transfer fee?
"When I didn't play, City didn't want to transfer me to Milan for £20m, so now that I am playing it's even more difficult. I will be back [in Argentina] at the age of 33."
Tevez spent three years with Boca before he joined Corinthians in 2004. Since then, he has spent time with West Ham United, Manchester United and City.
