The Argentinean attacker Carlos Tevez signed with the Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua on December 29 of 2016 as he penned a 2 year long contract and he is believed to have a reported salary in the region of $30-$40 million, if this is indeed true then Carlos Tevez will be one of the highest paid footballers in the entire sport which is a very surprising thing for a player that is 32 years old.
The head coach of Shanghai Shenhua, Gus Poyet appears to be extremely happy about having added Carlos Tevez as the Uruguayan manager expressed his delight as he said:
“After his official presentation he will meet his teammates because he has not met them yet. We are expecting thousands of fans to turn out. We had to change the training session because we wanted to open it up for the fans. We are going to do something special so that all the fans can enjoy his arrival.”
“When I saw him, he had the same expression on his face that he did when you saw the pictures of him arriving at the airport with all the fans around him. His main responsibility is to play football so we must help him with the rest’’
Carlos Tevez is expected to make his official competitive appearance for Shanghai Shenhua on February 8 of the ongoing year when the Chinese club faces off with Brisbane Roar for their play-off round of the Asian Football Confederation Champions League.
FredyGuarin, Obafemi Martins and Giovanni Moreno are all of the non-Asian players that have signed with Shanghai Shenhua and Carlos Tevez will be linking up with them as the Chinese club continues their reach from around the world and add more performers from every corner of the globe.
