Carlos Tevez rejects £20m move to Shanghai SIPG

Former West Ham, Man United, and Man City striker Carlos Tevez has reportedly turned down a lucrative deal worth £20 million a year to move to Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG.

The 32-year-old Argentine, who plays as a forward for Boca Juniors in his homeland, rejected the staggering amount to become the latest high-profile player to move to China in order to remain with the Argentine Primera Division.

Ramires, Jackson Martinez and Alex Teixeira have joined the Chinese Super League on lucrative contracts in recent weeks.

Former Chelsea star Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka have also had represented themselves in China in the later stages of their career.

But, Tevez turned down the opportunity to join the list of superstars. He was a hit during his spell in the Premier League, helping West Ham United to avoid relegation with scoring seven goals in 26 appearances before spending two seasons with Manchester United.
