Tevez has been one of the driving forces in Juve's march towards a likely third consecutive title and a possible record finish of 100 points this season.

But Conte said: "Thankfully Sabella isn't picking him, that way he can remain with us to train. We already have a lot of players on international duty."

Thanks to a brace in a 2-1 win over Parma on Wednesday, Tevez returned to the top of Serie A's scoring charts with a one-goal lead on Torino's Ciro Immobile.

But with Sabella boasting a forward line which includes Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero and Ezequiel Lavezzi, Tevez -- who has never been picked for Argentina under Sabella -- said he does not expect a call any time soon.

"I do my job on the pitch and after that it's up to Sabella to decide whether I go to the World Cup or not, not me," said Tevez.

"It's not up to me to pick up the phone and convince him. If I don't get picked, I'll go to the seaside with my family."

Juventus sit top of the league with a 14-point lead on Roma.
