Shanghai Shenhua are making a big effort to sign the Argentine forward but, after helping Boca Juniors to beat River Plate, he insists that he will not leave just yet
Boca Juniors star Carlos Tevez is adamant that Sunday’s Superclasico was not his last derby for the Argentine giants despite growing speculation of a move to China.
Tevez magic settles Superclasico
Tevez has been linked with a big-money switch to the Chinese Super League, where Shanghai Shenhua – managed by Gus Poyet – are desperate to do a deal for the Argentina international.
The 32-year-old said during the week that he was unsure of a move away from Buenos Aires but, after scoring a match-winning double for his boyhood club in a 4-2 win over arch-rivals River Plate, Tevez told reporters: “It was not the last Superclasico.
“The people of Boca know that I die for these colours and I feel happy because we enjoyed it all.
“It was one of the most free games I felt and I think that, if we concentrated on playing and not protest, we had more chances to win the game.”
Chelsea’s 3-4-3 has lost its fear factor
Boca coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto, meanwhile, warned Chinese suitors to hold off for at least another six months.
“I hope I have Tevez next year,” he remarked. “He knows what we want. We put a team around him. I would tell the Chinese to wait six more months.
“I’ll talk to Tevez next week.”
