Football: Money man Tevez touches down in Shanghai

SHANGHAI, , (Pakistan Point News - APP - 19th Jan, 2017 ) - Argentine striker Carlos Tevez arrived Thursday to a rousing welcome from hundreds of fans in Shanghai, where he will join local side Shenhua in a deal that reportedly makes him the world's top-earning footballer. Police at Shanghai's main international airport bundled the smiling Tevez through a crowd of blue-clad Shenhua fans who thronged the arrival hall, bursting into chants of "Carlos! Carlos!" when he emerged. He was whisked away without making any comment. Tevez's arrival from Argentine club Boca Juniors comes two weeks after that of Brazilian star Oscar, who joined cross-town Shanghai rivals SIPG under a 60-million-euro ($63 million) deal from Chelsea that smashed the Asian transfer fee record.
