Tevez completes Shanghai Shenhua switch

Carlos Tevez has formally completed his switch from Boca Juniors to Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.

The 32-year-old former Manchester United forward becomes the latest big-money signing to move to China following Oscar's £53m transfer earlier this week.

Tevez, who fulfilled his boyhood dream of returning to his home-town club, opted to make the switch after winning two trophies with Boca.

He won the league with his Argentine side as well as the Copa Argentina.

Tevez, who has previously turned out for Corinthians, West Ham United, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus, will reportedly become the highest-paid player in the world.

Boca wished Tevez all the best following his move.

A brief statement from the club read: "Good luck Carlitos. You will always be in our hearts."

Shenhua, who finished fourth in the CSL in the 2016 season, already have former Premier League stars Demba Ba and Obafemi Martins in their team, managed by Gus Poyet.
