Carlos Alberto Martínez Tevez (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈkaɾlos ˈteβes]; born 5 February 1984) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Shanghai Shenhua and the Argentina national team. His energy, skill and goalscoring rate have made him an indispensable player for his club sides throughout his career, in the eyes of fellow players and media alike.

Tevez began his career with Boca Juniors, winning the Copa Libertadores and Intercontinental Cup in 2003 before moving to Corinthians, where he won the Brasileiro. In 2006, he moved to West Ham United, helping the team remain in the Premier League in his only season. Tevez's prolonged transfers to West Ham and later Manchester United were plagued by issues regarding third-party ownership by Media Sports Investment, and their resulting sagas paved changes to both Premier League and FIFA regulations.

Tevez transferred to Manchester United in 2007, and in his two years there won several trophies, including two Premier League titles and the UEFA Champions League. In 2009, he joined Manchester City for £47 million, becoming the first player to move between the two rival clubs since Terry Cooke in 1999. Despite missing four months of the 2011–12 season following a dispute, Tevez returned to help Manchester City win their first league title in 44 years. In 2013, he joined Juventus for £12 million, finishing as the team's top goalscorer and winning the Scudetto in his first season. After winning a domestic double and reaching the Champions League final in his second season, he returned to Boca Juniors in June 2015, where he won another domestic double, becoming the first footballer to win two domestic league and cup doubles in one calendar year.

Since his debut for Argentina in 2005, Tevez has over 75 caps. A gold medal winner at the 2004 Olympics, he also played at two FIFA World Cups, a FIFA Confederations Cup and four Copa América tournaments.
