Carlos Tevez’s eye-watering Chinese Super League bounses have been revealed with the Argentine earning huge sums of money in the Far East.
The former Manchester United and Manchester City man was pocketing £200,000-a-week during his time in the Premier League, a figure paled into insignificance by the sums he now earns.
Tevez has an annual basic wage of £17.16million a year, as revealed by Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football.
That equates to a weekly pay packet of £634,615 gross.
But it is his bonuses that potentially allow him to take home much, much more.
If he starts 70 per cent of games for Shanghai Shenhua, he will be paid an extra £788,000.
Shenhua winning the Asian Champions League would pocket Tevez £1.56million while a league title win will net him £788,000.
He will earn an extra £390,000 if he is the club’s top goal scorer and the same amount if Shenhua win the domestic cup.
Tevez is not the highest-paid player in the world, however, with that dubious honour going to countryman Ezequiel Lavezzi who nets £798,000-a-week with Hebei China Fortune.
Didier Drogba was paid £508,692-a-week with Shenhua while Oscar earns £548,000-a-week at Shanghai SIPG.
