Argentina soccer star Carlos Tevez is reportedly already tired of his stay in the Far East despite the whopping salary he is earning.
The former Manchester City striker earns over half a million pounds in a week playing for Shanghai Shenhua.
The player could be on his way back to South America is he gets more weary, reports claim. He left his country to earn lots of cash and help Shenhua but he could be on his way back after only three months. The ex-Juventus player resigned from his role with boyhood club Boca Juniors at the end of last year to play in the Chinese Super League, earning £1 per second.
Tevez is one of the numerous stars that could not say no to the Chinese big money. Brazilian star Oscar recently shocked the world when he left Chelsea, in his prime, to move to China for mouth watering wages. Nigerian star Odion Ighalo also made the switch – even though he was not enjoying the best of form in the Premier League at Watford unlike last term.
Wayne Rooney could have broken any transfer record or wages cap if he wanted to by agreeing to a move to play in China. However, he openly squashed such talks, promising to end his career at Old Trafford.
Argentine news source Ole reported that 33-year old Tevez almost wanted to abandon the huge salary for a chance to return to Buenos Aires. The player’s agent waded in to calm the waters, the report added. He had played just one game – in which they lost 2-0 to Brisbane Roar in the AFC Champions League.
Things seems to have calmed down for the player but he is already tired despite his big salary.
