Carlos Tevez has dismissed claims that he is the world’s best paid player.
The Argentine striker became the latest high profile him to join the Chinese Super League. He decided to leave Boca Juniors, a club which he adores, for Shanghai Shenhua. Even though the transfer fee was only reported to be around £ 10 million, it is rumoured that the player has become the highest-paid player in the world at wages of around £ 30 million per year. Chinese clubs have been on an extraordinary spending spree in January and they have recently brought in Oscar for £ 60 million.
For a brief period, the former Chelsea midfielder was one of the highest earning players at around £ 20 million per season. It did not take long for Tevez to overtake the 25-year-old on this front. Without revealing the actual numbers, Tevez claimed that the figures being spoken on the Internet are certainly not true. Read more Carlos Tevez Dismisses Suggestions of £600,000 a Week Wages
