TEVEZ IS APPARENTLY NOT HIGHEST PAID FOOTBALLER

Argentine Carlos Tevez has turned out not to be the highest paid footballer in the world as widely reported.


No doubt he earns the mouth and eye watering salary but his international teammate Ezekiel Lavezzi trumps him in pay-out.

The striker started from his home country before he moved to England. After his sojourn at West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City, he moved to the Serie A where he continued his illustrious career with Juventus.

He returned home in 2015 but after two and a half seasons at home, he could no longer say no to the huge salary he Chinese were flaunting. He agreed to the move to the Far East and the move was celebrated all over the world as he was set to earn the highest salary offered to a footballer on the planet.

Tevez signed with Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua and has been playing. However, the latest report from Football Leaks shows that Lavezzi receives way more than the Argentine.

While Tevez is earning a whopping £634,615 per week, Lavezzi receives £798,000 per week playing for Hebei China Fortune. Read more TEVEZ IS APPARENTLY NOT HIGHEST PAID FOOTBALLER

Carlos Tevez Dismisses Suggestions of £600,000 a Week Wages

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

Tevez admits European return is a possibility

Carlos Tevez completed his move to Boca Juniors on June of 2015 as he made a return to his childhood club where he used to perform with during the earlier stages of his career.

The veteran striker is a consistent starter in Boca Juniors which is fairly impressive considering that he is the 2nd oldest player of the entire squad but Tevez has still managed to secure a consistent spot in the starting lineup of the manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto.
