Carlos Tevez has completed his high profile transfer to Shanghai Shenhua. This deal drew a lot of interest because of the rumored wages he would be earning.
The transfer fee paid is thought to be around £9 million. It seems most sources agree that he will be getting $40 million but they differ on whether that is over the course of one year or two. If it is over one year then he would be the highest paid player in the world by quite a lot. If it is over two years then he would be behind the top earners Ronaldo and Messi.
Tevez is just the latest high profile player to make the move to China. Former Chelsea midfielder Oscar also made the recent switch to China for a fee in the region of £60 million and there is lots of talk that Angel Di Maria could be leaving Paris Saint-Germain after a tough season for the lucrative pastures of China.
