Tevez poised to make China move
Carlos Tevez looks set to pocket $41.6 million a season — 20 times what he currently earns at Boca Juniors — with a transfer to the Chinese Super League, Argentine media said on Thursday.
The striker is negotiating a move to Shanghai Shenhua, which would see him become the latest foreign superstar to be lured to China for an eyepopping salary.
“At Boca they know that Tevez will go and that he is sealing a contract with Shanghai Shenhua for two years for $84 million,” sports daily Ole reported on Thursday.
Tevez, formerly of Manchester City, Manchester United and Juventus, turns 33 in February but showed his enduring quality with two goals as Boca beat bitter rival River Plate 4-2 on Sunday.
