CARLOS TEVEZ might be able to spend all day staring at his pile of Chinese cash.
But his international team-mate will have a larger pile.
Eye-watering figures have been revealed along with several other leaks in the explosive book Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football.

And Tevez, widely thought to be the sport’s highest earner, has been taking home £634,615 gross every single week at Shanghai Shenhua.
But his fellow Argentina forward Ezequiel Lavezzi has been earning more, with a weekly remuneration of £798,000 a week.
That works out as £41.5million a year being shelled out by Hebei China Fortune.
Lavezzi, 32, switched from Paris Saint-Germain in January and has had a difficult time of it in China.
So far, he has only scored two goals for Fortune… and it’s costing his club a fortune, around £20m a goal.
Well, that’s a tad awkward – and must at least make Paul Pogba feel a little less pressure at Manchester United, after his world record transfer last summer.
Elsewhere, the top five are occupied by former Chelsea playmaker Oscar, who moved to Shanghai SIPG from Chelsea over the winter.
Of course Cristiano Ronaldo is in the top five as well, many will say justifiably so, having scored 35 goals for Real Madrid so far this season.
And Lionel Messi also makes the top five, despite not making a Champions League final this season.
Yesterday it emerged that Liverpool star Roberto Firmino takes home £31,666 for each assist as details of players’ lucrative contracts have continued to be exposed.

Tevez will take home a healthy sum of extra cash through his lucrative bonus structure.
The 33-year-old will bank a whopping £788,000 if he plays in at just 70 per cent of Shanghai’s matches this season.
He will also receive the same amount if his side win the Chinese Super League, with £1.56m at stake for victory in the Asian Champions League.
Meanwhile, domestic cup glory will pocket Tevez a further £390,000, with the same amount available if he finishes as top scorer.
Elsewhere in the top ten are Gareth Bale, who takes home £346,153 a week at Real Madrid.
Hulk trousers £320,000 at Shanghai SIPG and Axel Witsel £294,000.
Pogba takes home £290,000 every seven days at Manchester United and Neymar and team-mate Luis Suarez slightly less on £262,000.
