Tevez was Juve's top scorer during the 2014 2015 campaign, tallying 20 goals in league play and 29 across all competitions.

Tevez may currently be a nominee for the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award-thanks to his dynamite performance at Juventus last season-but his days in European football, it seems, are done.
