Sevilla coach Jorge Sampaoli has made an ambitious move for Boca Juniors striker Carlos Tevez.

AS says Sampaoli called El Apache directly, urging him to make the move to Spain next month.

Tevez appreciated the offer, but he explained that he had already accepted a stunning offer from Shanghai Shenhua. The Argentine will move to China on a salary worth ten times his wages with Boca.

The 32 year-old is a fan of Sampaoli, but couldn’t turn down the Shanghai opportunity.

The former Manchester United and Juventus striker will play for ex-Real Betis coach Gus Poyet at Shanghai Shenhua.
