Carlos Tevez Has A Special Clause In Shanghai Shenhua Contract

Carlos Tevez Has A Special Clause In Shanghai Shenhua Contract

Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua have forked out massive money on Carlos Tevez in terms of transfer fee and wages but appears they have also been very clever in the deal.

Shenhuai are said to have paid out a massive £71 million to sign Tevez for the 32-year old and the former Manchester City and Manchester United's striker's contract will see him earn a record-breaking £615,000 a week.

It's crazy money, but Shenhua, who are managed by former Sunderland boss Gus Poyet, have apparently inserted a clause in Tevez's contract that will see them recoup a fair portion of what they splashed on Tevez.

As per Hu Zhicheng from Goal, should Tevez leave Shenhua for South America before his two-year deal expires, Boca Juniors would be forced to pay 60 per cent of the fee they received as part of the deal that takes Tevez to China.

If reports of Tevez's transfer fee are indeed accurate, that's a massive £43 million that Boca will lose.

Shenhua have spent ridiculous money on the signing but it seems as though they've played it well, if the special clause report is correct.

Tevez is set to join up with the Shanghai squad as part of a winter training camp in early January.

Who else can you see moving to China in the near future?
