Carlos Tevez arrived in China to join his new side Shanghai Shenhua. And he was absolutely mobbed at the airport by the eagerly waiting fans.
He was given a welcome fit for a king. He landed in China straight from Boca Juniors. He is the latest addition to a host of world class players that the Chinese teams have been adding to their squads. Tevez joins the likes of Oscar, Hulk, Ramirez and Jackson Martinez to move to China.
The Chinese teams have been shelling out money like crazy. And with that much money involved it was a serious concern for the teams all across the world. As no player was out of bounds and no price tag was too big. Carlos Tevez will earn 610,000 pounds a week in his new club. This tells you the amount of money flowing in the Chinese League.
But thankfully Chinese Football Association has intervened and each team will be restricted to playing three foreign players from the next season.
