Tevez poised to make China move

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

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.
