The Chinese club announced the signing of Tevez from Argentinian side Boca Juniors on Thursday in a statement on their official website.

“Shanghai Greenland Shenhua FC reached a transfer agreement with Argentina Club Atletico Boca Juniors. Carlos Alberto Tevez is officially joined Shanghai Shenhua,” the statement said.

Thirty-two-year-old Tevez, who has also played for Corinthians, West Ham and Juventus, will play for Gus Poyet’s side next season after scoring 25 goals in 56 matches for Boca Juniors.
