TEVEZ CASHES IN WITH SHANGHAI
Carlos Tevez has joined Chinese Super League side Shanghai Greenland Shenhua in a deal which will reportedly make him the highest paid player in the world. The former Manchester United and Manchester City striker has signed a two-year contract and, although no financial details were announced in the move from Boca Juniors, reports suggest he is set to earn £615,000 a week (Dh2.8 million). The Argentine, 32, is the latest high-profile capture by a Chinese club after Shanghai SIPG last week signed Brazil midfielder Oscar from Chelsea for a fee of around £52m. A statement on Shenhua’s official website read: “Shanghai Greenland Shenhua FC reached a transfer agreement with Argentina Club Atletico Boca Juniors. Carlos Alberto Tevez has officially joined Shanghai Shenhua.” Tevez will team up with former Newcastle strikers Demba Ba and Obafemi Martins at Shanghai Greenland Shenhua, and will be managed by Gus Poyet, formerly of Tottenham and Chelsea.
