Tevez said to be mulling China move

Rio de Janeiro, Nov 20 (IANS) Argentine forward Carlos Tevez has been offered 40 million euros ($42.35 million) a year to join a Chinese Super League club, according to Brazilian media reports.

Tevez is contracted to Argentine club Boca Juniors until June 2018 but the Buenos Aires outfit could be tempted to release the 32-year-old if a big-money offer is made, reports Xinhua.

“One of the teams that fight for the Chinese Super League title has offered Tevez around 40 million euros a year … (but) he hasn’t responded yet,” the Sambafoot news portal said on Saturday.

Earlier this year Tevez was linked with a move to Shanghai SIPG, who were said to have offered around 24 million euros ($25.41 million) a year.

Tevez, whose career has included spells at top European clubs Juventus, Manchester United and Manchester City, has scored 19 goals since returning his original club Boca in June 2015.
