Former Man Utd, Man City, Juventus star pondering China move

Carlos Tevez has revealed that he could leave Boca Juniors to play in China.

The Argentine striker returned to his boyhood club from Juventus last summer after spending almost a decade in the UK and Europe.

Former West Ham United, Manchester United and Manchester City star Tevez is the subject of a ludicrous £33.8million-a-year from Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua and admits the proposal has him pondering the next phase of his career.

"I do not know what I am going to do," said the 32-year-old at a press conference.

"I have many problems in my head to think about, [like] whether in February or March I'm going to be in China.

"When I'm on vacation, with a cool head, I'll think about it. I am always thinking about what's best for me, my family and for Boca. I know about the offer and the numbers.

"Not only could I leave [Boca], I could also stop playing. I still don't know what I'm going to do. I reached the end of the year exhausted, with a thousand things in my head. That's the time to stop a little and think about the future.

"I think about retiring, yes, that's why I mention it."
