Shanghai have once again exemplified what they are known for as the club are ready to offer the 32-year-old Argentine professional a contract of £615,000 a week salary.

The player is now set to become the highest paid professional footballer in the world ahead of Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.

After nine years of active football in Europe, Carlos Tevez returned to his home country to play for Boca Juniors before hanging up his booths, but he is now expected to sign a two-year contract with the Chinese club in January 2017.
