West Ham offer record-setting wage for Golden Boot winner, but he demands £250,000-a-week

It’s been nearly a decade since scoring machine Carlos Tevez plied his trade with West Ham United, and it might be a lot longer before it happens again as the club found themselves well-short of Tevez’s salary demands to bring him back to the club.

According to the Mirror, West Ham United submitted a wage offer to Tevez of £150,000-a-week – but the Argentine star and former Premier League Golden Boot winner balked. Per the report, Tevez instead demanded a wage of£250,000-a-week to return to his former club.

Tevez currently plays for Boca Juniors in Argentina, and has been there for just over a year now.

In his lone season at West Ham, Tevez scored seven league goals – his fewest in any campaign with at least 20 appearances.

After the season he was released and joined Manchester United, winning back-to-back Premier League titles with the team before a switch to Man City. While with the Citizens, Tevez won the 2010 Golden Boot award alongside Dimitar Berbatov.
