The Argentine forward’s move from Boca Juniors to the Chinese Super League has been officially confirmed

Former Manchester City and Juventus forward Carlos Tevez has completed his lucrative move to Shanghai Shenhua from Boca Juniors.

Tevez, 32, has long been expected to complete the switch, which was confirmed by both clubs.

The Argentine is reportedly becoming the highest-paid player in the world with his move to the Chinese Super League (CSL).

In a statement, Boca wished Tevez – who returned to his boyhood club last year and won two more trophies – all the best.

“Good luck Carlitos,” a statement read. “You will always be in our hearts.”

Tevez’s arrival is a boost to Shenhua, who finished fourth in the CSL in the 2016 season.

He joins the likes of Demba Ba and Obafemi Martins in Gus Poyet’s squad.

The forward is set to earn a reported £615,000 a week in the CSL, as Poyet looks to add experience to his squad.

Tevez moved from South America to England in 2006, initially signing for West Ham United before switching to Manchester United.

He spent two seasons at Old Trafford, winning the Premier League title in both campaigns under Alex Ferguson, as well as the Champions League in 2007-08.

Four seasons and another league title at Manchester City followed, ahead of a transfer to Juventus, where he added the Serie A title to his list of achievements.

He returned to Boca Juniors in the summer of 2015, helping them win the league title, but will now be looking to add to his trophy haul in Asia after signing a lucrative contract.
