Carlos Tevez says that he is uncertain of a Boca Juniors stay amidst interest from China.
The Argentine striker is reportedly wanted by several Chinese clubs, who are ready to pay him an astonishing salary of £ 40 million per year or around £ 600,000 per week. It is a figure that would dwarf the salary earned by Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. The Chinese clubs have been making a lot of investments in the game over the last few months. Several Brazilians have already joined the Chinese outfits for multi-million pound moves.
Chelsea midfielder Oscar is the latest to become the record signing for China, as he is 90% close to a move to Shanghai SIPG for a whopping £ 60 million. It is also understood that the midfielder would be earning £ 400,000 per week. Shanghai Shenhua, who have in the past signed players like Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, are very keen on bringing in Tevez.
The former Manchester City and Juventus forward returned to Boca Juniors claiming that he wanted to retire at the Argentine outfit where he started his career. The 32-year-old claimed that he is aware of his importance to Boca Juniors on and off the field, but he has not made a decision just yet.
Tevez currently earns a fraction of the £ 600,000 a week being offered by Chinese clubs.”Today my head is thinking that I will stay, but I am suffering. I still do not imagine myself leaving Boca.I am aware of how important is everything that you transmit on and off the pitch.I think it’s time to think and it’s only me to take the decision. I know that my teammates want me to stay, that the coach wants me to stay, but the decision is mine and when I have a cool head I’m going to think,” said Tevez.
