Boca Juniors striker and former Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus forward Carlos Tevez has rejected a big money move to partner Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan at Shanghai SIPG.
The Argentina international plans to retire in his home country and subsequently turned down a transfer move that would have paid him an annual salary of $25 million.
The $480 000-a- week deal would have taken the former West Ham United striker above the pay check of Shanghai SIPG star Asamaoah Gyan who is currently taking in the region of $300 000-a-week.
The transfer offer from Chinese club Shanghai SIPG is an upgrade of an initial $20 million bid for the Argentinian.
Chinese clubs in a bid to develop football in the country are luring stars from across the globe.
