Carlos Tevez moves to China

Ex-Manchester City and United striker Carlos Tevez has signed for Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, the club confirmed on Thursday.

Tevez, 32, has long been expected to complete the switch, which was confirmed by both clubs.

Shanghai, coached by ex-Brighton boss Gus Poyet, are reported to have agreed a deal worth £40m for Tevez including a salary in excess of £310,000 a week.

The Argentine is reportedly becoming the highest-paid player in the world with his move to the Chinese Super League (CSL).

In a statement, Boca wished Tevez – who returned to his boyhood club last year and won two more trophies – all the best.

“Good luck Carlitos,” a statement read. “You will always be in our hearts.”

Tevez’s arrival is a boost to Shenhua, who finished fourth in the CSL in the 2016 season.

He joins the likes of Demba Ba and Obafemi Martins in Gus Poyet’s squad.
