Shanghai (AFP) – Carlos Tevez’s Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua say they are taking legal action over suggestions of match-fixing after they grabbed a last-gasp 2-2 draw at Fabio Capello’s Jiangsu Suning.

Having even the remotest interest in Shanghai Shenhua should probably come with a health warning.

Believe me, its lots of fun but if you can, enjoy it in moderation.

Quite possibly, if you ask the Shenhua PR department.

Chinese media quoted a report by sports network ESPN saying Anelka had agreed a two-year deal with Shenhua for a weekly salary of £200,000, reportedly a marked rise from his £90,000 per week at Chelsea.
