Ex-Man Utd, Man City, Juventus striker Tevez wants to leave China…already

Carlos Tevez reportedly wants to leave Shanghai Shenhua after just three months in China.

The Argentine striker is believed to be unhappy in the Far East despite the fact he is earning a ludicrous £615,000 per week.

Argentine paper Olé is reporting that Tevez, who left Boca Juniors for Shanghai in December, wants to return home even though he stands to earn £64million over a two-year period in the Chinese Super League.

However, Tevez's agent has denied claims his client wants out already.

Adrián Roucco said: "Tevez will not be returning from China. I do not know where that came from.

"I spoke with Tevez and he is not going anywhere."

The former West Ham United, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus striker has made just one competitive appearance for Shenhua which came in an Asian Champions League defeat to Brisbane Roar.
