West Ham do want Carlos Tevez to come back, West Ham co-owner David Sullivan confirmed to the Daily Mail. The offer they delivered would have made Tevez the highest-paid player at the club.

Carlos Tevez left Juventus last year to join Boca Juniors. But the Argentinean might come back to Europa because of West Ham’s interest over him. Tevez first joined West Ham in 2006 - with Javier Mascherano - from Corinthians. He then moved to Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus. Last year, he opted to rejoin his boyhood club Boca.

David Sullivan made an offer to bring him back to the Premier League for $195,000 a week (without bonuses) which would have made him the best-paid player in Hammers history. Not enough for Carlos Tevez: he has demanded $325,000 a week to rejoin United.

"All this business, 'I love West Ham', well it's 'I love West Ham if they give me $325,000 a week'," Sullivan told the Daily Mail. "So how much love is that for West Ham? I actually offered him $195,000 a week to come back plus bonuses. I thought that was an incredible offer for someone who loves West Ham. And it was a huge gamble for us because he's 33 now and hasn't done it in South America."

"It wasn't a publicity stunt, I saw him being our number one striker. I was hoping he would reproduce what he did at Juventus a year ago. He was a fantastic player," Sullivan finally said. Yes, he was a fantastic player:
