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


Two of the biggest football stars that moved to China Carlos Tevez and Oscar made their debut for their respective clubs.

Shanghai Shenhua’s start with Tevez did not exactly go as they would want as they lost the AFC Champions League to Brisbane Roar. On the other hand, the Brazilian started well with Shanghai SIPG.

One Weibo post reads: “What is the point of hiring expensive foreign coaches when they are no better than the ones who were already there.” This echoed the popular sentiment from the fans, based on the traction it received. Many blamed Coach Gustavo Poyet for the loss of Shenhua to Roar at the AFC Championship.

Many focused on the addition of Argentina international and world record salary earner Tevez, ignoring the match against Roar. Many criticized his move to the country as he was past his prime and others battled if he was worth the salary he is being paid.

The AFC Champions League playoff is an single-legged affair and Shenhua lost it in front of their fans at the Hongkou Stadium. Former Nigeria international Obafemi Martins was expected to combine well with the former Manchester United striker to move mountains for the club but the duo struggled to impress.

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.

Boca Juniors helped Carlos Tevez to improve his goalscoring form

Boca Juniors moved to the top of their group in the Copa Libertadores after a 6-2 win over Deportivo Cali.

This appeared to be the perfect match for Carlos Tevez to improve his goalscoring form. After all, the opposition were reduced to 10 men during the 90 minutes. Tevez took full advantage of the mediocre form of the opponents to score a brace. Finishing top of the group gives a big advantage way into the knockout stages. Only the top two positions will be to qualify for the next round. Racing Club have come as the group’s second placed outfit.

After starting the Copa Libertadores campaign in disappointing fashion, Boca Juniors could not have wished for a better finish. They started the campaign with two consecutive draws, which meant that Bolívar were top of the table after the opening two games. Hence, there was a real pressure upon Boca Juniors to get a win from the game. Victory would move them closer towards the prospect of reaching the next round without any hiccups. However, the first half of the game did not suggest any good result for the home team, who went into the break at 2-2. Read more Boca Juniors helped Carlos Tevez to improve his goalscoring form

Carlos Tevez return to Argentine football

Carlos Tevez is the biggest absentee from Argentina’s latest squad for the World Cup qualifying matches.

Manager Gerardo Martino was expected to pick the former Manchester City and Juventus forward, but this has not been the case. Tevez recently returned to Argentine football to play for his hometown club Boca Juniors. This was also expected to help him feature more regularly for the national team. This has not been the case in recent years due to the lack of places especially in the forward position. The likes of Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain, and Angel di Maria will provide valuable alternatives to Tevez.

It is only when one of these players are unavailablethat it leads to a spot in the team for Tevez. Even though the headlines have been around the absence of Tevez, other important players who have been not named in the latest squad include Ezequiel Garay and Fernando Gago. These two players that part of the team that came up as runners-up in the recent Copa America. Their absence may suggest that Martino is not entirely happy with the squad and he would like to change a few things in order to make the team from being perennial runners-up into winners.

Carlos Tevez’s agent has apparently told Juventus president Andrea Agnelli

Carlos Tevez’s agent has apparently told Juventus president Andrea Agnelli that his client wants to leave the club and return to his homeland. Tevez has been linked with a move to Boca Juniors in the last six months. Since he has only 12 months left on his contract, the striker sees this is an ideal opportunity to seal a move back to Boca Juniors where it all began for him as a teenager. Tevez has represented the clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City in a strong career, but he has never stayed at a club for more than a couple of years.

The lack of stability, though, has not affected his game one bit. Last season, the goals scored by the Argentine was a major factor in Juventus winning the league title once again. They also reached the final of the Champions League. Keen to end the disappointing run in the European competition, Juventus managed to be the likes of Real Madrid along the way but they were beaten narrowly in the final by Barcelona. In his career, Tevez has won the Champions League once with Manchester United. He has apparently decided to bring his time in Italian football to an end after requesting the president for a six months ago.

Carlos Tevez reckons Barcelona starts the favourites in the final of the European Cup

Carlos Tevez reckons Barcelona starts the favourites in the final of the European Cup because of their offensive line and if Juventus has to go anywhere close, they will have to play phenomenal Football.

Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez operate in the offensive line of Barcelona making it one of the most potent in the world.

To handle the trio has proved to be immensely difficult, almost impossible, for the teams in Spain this season, but, the European final brings a different sort of pressure altogether and Juventus is a high quality team as well. So, it’s going to be a different ballgame.

However, not many would disagree with Tevez that Barca look an invincible team on paper and will have an edge going into the Saturday’s game.

Speaking in the pre match media conference, Tevez, who would be Juventus’ trump card, said, “Barcelona is probably the strongest unit going around at the moment. Their frontline is lethal and there will be absolutely no room for error against them.” Read more Carlos Tevez reckons Barcelona starts the favourites in the final of the European Cup

Carlos Tevez spent over 6 years of his career performing in the Premier League

Carlos Tevez spent over 6 years of his career performing in the Premier League as the Argentine player made his way through West Ham United, Manchester United and lastly Manchester City. All of these were the English sides that Tevez joined before eventually joining the Italian side Juventus.

The Argentine striker has enough experience performing in different leagues as he has been part of some of the major European leagues and according to Carlos Tevez, he believes that scoring in the Premier League is much more easier than in Italy.

Carlos Tevez said: “It’s much easier to score in the Premier League, where the ball doesn’t stop moving, the action is everywhere and the midfield is non-existent. Here you see a striker up against five defenders; it’s much more difficult than in England. The Italian league is of a high standard.”

The 31 year old forward continued on by giving praise to his teammates as he told reporters: “My team-mates and Allegri give me so much confidence. I’m happy with how the coach asks me to play. We made some kind of deal: when I get the ball I can do whatever I want but I have to perform very specific tasks in defence.I like being in contact with the ball. If you don’t give it to me, I’ll get it.” Read more Carlos Tevez spent over 6 years of his career performing in the Premier League

Carlos Tevez rubbishes Rumors about Fallout on Messi

Argentine striker Carlos Tevez has rejected suggestions that he has had a fallout with superstar Lionel Messi. This has often been speculated as the sole reason for Tevez not being in the Argentina squad despite his good form over the last couple of years.

The former Manchester City striker is the top scorer in the Italian Serie A and his form has propelled Juventus to the top of the table. Yet, he does not seem anywhere close to featuring for the Argentine national team. Messi continues to be the star of the show when it comes to Argentina.

Tevez has had an up-and-down time in football over the last five years. He came very close to sealing a permanent move to Manchester United only to land in the hands of rivals Manchester City. His City career blossomed for a few years before coming to an abrupt halt after a fallout with manager Roberto Mancini. Since his £ 10 million move to Juventus, he has constantly been linked with a return to his homeland to finish his career. Read more Carlos Tevez rubbishes Rumors about Fallout on Messi
