Described by the legendary Diego Maradona as the 'Argentine prophet for the 21st century', Carlos Tevez started his playing career in his native Buenos Aires with Boca Juniors before moving to Sao Paulo to join Corinthians, where he scored an impressive 31 goals in 53 games during his stay.

In 2006 the striker joined West Ham United, along with fellow Argentine Javier Mascherano, where, after a slow start, his form helped the Hammers to avoid what looked like certain relegation at the end of the 2006/2007 season.

Tevez then picked up the Hammer of the Year award, as well as the Player of the Year award from the club's magazine, despite having played only 26 games for the club.

A host of big sides became interested in clinching his signature following these performances and Tevez finally signed for Manchester United in August 2007.

He played in a total of 48 matches in his first season at United and scored 19 goals in all competitions to help United to the League and Champions League double, forming a formidable striking force with Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, the arrival of Dimitar Berbatov at the start of the 2008/09 season saw his first-team opportunities dwindle, though four goals in a League Cup match against Blackburn helped him state his case that he should be a regular starter.

Tevez began voicing his displeasure at coming on as a regular substitute in 2009, which led to his departure in July of that year.

He signed a five-year deal with derby rivals Manchester City for around GBP 25 million, having played 63 league matches for the Red Devils.
