There were reports in Italy that the striker weighed in six kilograms overweight during his physical test for his transfer from Manchester City to Juventus. The report suggested that Tevez would be under close scrutiny when he reports to Turin for the new season but the Argentine laughed off the rumours.
"I've not yet arrived at Juventus and there are some that claim I am overweight and have to lose six kilos," Tevez was quoted as saying on Football Italia.
"But I have not yet been weighed. It makes me laugh to hear certain things. Juventus have not told me anything in this sense."
Tevez's last appearance for Argentina came back in 2011 and he is resigned to missing out on the 2014 World Cup.
"Everyone knows that I love the Albiceleste shirt, but I certainly do not miss it." he added.
"The doors to the national team are closed for me, you know, and if you want the reasons then you have to ask the current coaching staff, who have never called me up.
"I know why I have been left out but it is not for me to say. Evidently the Coach [Alejandro Sabella] likes other strikers more.
"I know very well that I will not go to the next World Cup even if I were to make sparks, I am resigned to this. I will be a fan.
"Did I fall out with Lionel Messi? It is true that there are fans of Messi and fans of Tevez, but between us there has never been any problem, we have always had good relations in the dressing room."
