Carlos Tevez is considering an offer to play in China for Shanghai Shenhua.

New Shanghai Shenhua coach Gustavo Poyet has said the club are negotiating with Tevez over a deal worth a reported €40 million ($42.5 million) per season.

"I could leave, I could retire, I don't really know the answer to that right now," Tevez told a news conference.

"I didn't say I was leaving -- I just said I would entertain the decision at the end of the season. 

"I will do what is best for me, my family and my club. There is too much going on right now to think about it."

Tevez left Juventus to return to his boyhood club Boca in 2015.
