Cap e Town - While you may be under the impression that millionaire footballers have their wages delivered in wheelbarrows full of gold bullion, several of them actually receive their remuneration via bank transfer.

According to the Yahoo! Eurosport website, one such man is Carlos Tevez, 28, who is the apparent owner of a pay slip that leaked on Twitter on Sunday.

Assuming the document is genuine, it tells us that the Argentinian earned a gross wage of £720 287 in March 2010, with an additional bonus of £20 000 for accommodation and a £7 000 "M.P. Bonus".

It also reveals that the City striker's net £408 397.27 earnings were hit by a £24 fine from the FA.

In the tax year 2009/10, the pay slip states Tevez was paid just under £8m, but handed over nearly £3.3m in tax and national insurance.

Tevez played for West Ham from 2006-2007 before joining Manchester United from 2007-2009 where he made 63 appearances and scored 19 goals. Tevez then joined Manchester City in 2009 and has made 92 appearances to date for the reigning English Premiership champions, scoring 54 goals in the process.

Former Liverpool star John Arne Riise also had his pay slip end up on the Internet in 2008.
