Carlos Tevez Set For Move Away From Chinese Super League
Carlos Tevez might be on £650,000-a-week and in what is considered a pretty rubbish league but the former Juventus striker hasn't had much luck in China. Fortunately for him it looks like he's about to leave.
Tevez is a player who once complained there was no Spanish speaking cinemas in Manchester and only one restaurant worth visiting, despite being in England for nearly seven years and in Manchester for six of them.
So desperate to leave the north west of the country and move to a club closer to home that he packed his bags up and went to Juventus, with Italy being further away from Argentina of course.

Eventually he found his way back home with Boca Juniors but after winning the league the chance to be one of the world's highest paid players in China was too much to turn down.
However he scored just four goals in 16 league games this season in the Chinese Super League and now it looks like he'll be leaving the Far East pretty quickly.
According to AS the 33 year old is on the verge of his third stint with hometown club Boca Juniors with the clubs vice president, Horacio Paolini, recently telling TyC Sports:
"I'm constantly in touch with Carlos and we met last week for a meal. I'd say his return will be closed in a few days."

Back in September Shanghai Shenhua boss Wu Jingui, who had just taken the job as manager from Gus Poyet, criticised Tevez' fitness saying:
"I won't pick him right now. He's not ready physically. He's not fit to play. He is overweight, along with [Fredy] Guarin. I have to take responsibility for the team and the players as well.
"If you are unable do your utmost to play, there's no point in picking you. I have coached lots of big stars, and my players are never picked on reputation."

It looks like Tevez' short and unhappy spell in China will soon come to an end, it seems very predictable that it wouldn't last all too long.
