What's your thoughts?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the latest name linked with a mega-money move to the Chinese Super League, and could be set to break transfer and wage records in the process.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the 27-year-old Borussia Dortmund striker, who has previously been linked with Manchester City and Real Madrid, is the subject of a €150 million bid from Shanghai SIPG that would net him €41m-a-season in wages.

Oscar

Oscar will complete his move from Chelsea to Shanghai SIPG in January, the Premier League leaders have announced.

The deal will see Oscar, 25, massively increase his £90,000-a-week wages at Stamford Bridge and become the Blues' record sale at £60 million, according to ESPN FC sources, eclipsing the £50m fee received from Paris Saint-Germain for David Luiz in the summer of 2014.

The fee will be the fourth-largest ever paid to a Premier League club. The current world record is the £85m Real Madrid paid to Tottenham Hotspur for Gareth Bale in 2013, exceeding the £80m Manchester United charged the Spanish giants for Cristiano Ronaldo four years earlier. Liverpool sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona in 2014 for £65m.

Axel Witsel

Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel is joining Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian, the Russian club have confirmed on their official website.

Witsel will link up with Fabio Cannavaro at Tianjin Quanjian, and earn a reported €18 million annual salary over a four-year contract.

Carlos Tevez

Shanghai Shenhua have completed a deal to bring former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez to the Chinese Super League (CSL).

Shanghai Shenhua paid a £9 million ($11m) transfer fee to get the striker, and while it was initially said he would be paid a world-high of £615,000 ($760,632) a week to make the move, reports in China say it will be significantly less.

The total deal over two years is reported to be £32.5m ($40m) including the transfer fee, which works out at £226,000 per week and that would place Tevez significantly behind the reported salaries for Cristiano Ronaldo (£288,000 after tax) and Lionel Messi (£256,000 after tax).

Cristiano Ronaldo

Chinese clubs are beginning to flex their financial muscles in an attempt to bring more prestige to the Chinese Super League, and according to Jorge Mendes, one club spared no expense to try to lure Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

Mendes, Ronaldo's agent, told Sky Sport Italia (via Goal.com) on Thursday that Real Madrid received a €300 million transfer offer, and Ronaldo received an offer worth over €100 million annually.

Over the past few years, the Chinese Super League has scooped up stars in the twilights of their playing careers, such as Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba.

More recently, though, the league has invested in younger players, such as Jackson Martinez (30), Hulk (30) and Alex Teixeira (26). On Dec. 23, Shanghai SIPG agreed to terms on a reported £60 million move for Oscar, per the BBC, while Carlos Tevez will be making £610,000 per week after signing with Shanghai Shenhua, according to Sky Sports' Paul Vinnell.

Wesley Sneijder

Wesley Sneijder wanted by Beijing Guoan and other unnamed Chinese Super League club but may reject mega-money move.

Not good. The Japanese, Korean and occasional team from the Gulf states comes out on top. But this is really interesting. China is flexing it's financial power. We will see if it is sustainable. Time will tell.

Chinese FA confirms limit on foreign players for Super League clubs
 BY MICHAEL CHURCH (ESPN).


Chinese Super League clubs' player recruitment plans for the coming season were thrown into disarray on Monday morning as the Chinese Football Association confirmed last week's reports it would limit the number of foreign players permitted to play in the 2017 season.

In a statement published on the federation's website, the CFA announced clubs would be permitted to field a maximum of three foreign players per game, with that quota including players from within the area governed by the Asian Football Confederation.

Previously, teams were allowed to field an Asian player in addition to three non-Asian foreigners, but that spot in the starting line-up will now be taken by a Chinese player under the age of 23. Clubs must also include a second Chinese player under 23 in their matchday squads.

"In order to realise 'The General Plan of Chinese Football Reform and Development' and to benefit the overall development of Chinese football and Chinese local players, to enhance the quality of the national team and to keep the professional league on a healthy, stable and consistent track, the CFA has adjusted the regulations of the 2017 Chinese Super League and the China League," the statement said.

The new regulations were drawn up during a meeting of the CFA's Professional Leagues Committee in Wuhan on Sunday before clubs were informed of the ruling. The current transfer window opened on Jan. 1 and many of the 16 Chinese Super League clubs have already signed their full quota of foreign players ahead of the league's opening round on March 4.

A number of transfers in the works, including Liaoning Whowin's move for Australia international James Holland, have been thrown into limbo following the announcement.

The statement warned that the federation will continue to monitor the transfer activities of Chinese clubs following a period that has seen the Asian transfer record smashed on five occasions over the last 12 months, with Oscar's £60 million move from Chelsea to Shanghai SIPG setting a new benchman last month.

"The CFA will continue to release new rules and policies to regulate the irrational expense of the Chinese Super League and the China League, including the overpaying of domestic and international transfer fees and salaries in order to professionalise clubs' operations and management," said the statement.

The national association also stressed it would be drawing up new regulations relating to youth development as well as more closely overseeing the governance of clubs.

"The CFA will give clear and specific plans regarding the club youth system and infrastructure, will fight against fake contracts, signing fees and other illegal activities," the statement said.

"In order to create a stable and healthy long-term football environment, clubs -- based on their geographical background -- will have to develop a diverse shareholder structure and have a neutral club name; regulate their own financial systems; allow third party audits; form a standard financial protocol; form a healthy and independent operating system and develop self-regulation and management quality."

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Tianjin Quanjian say CSL rules ruined Diego Costa, Radamel Falcao deals.
By Michael Church (ESPN.


Amid reports of a Chinese bid for Cristiano Ronaldo, Sid Lowe assesses how the CSL's money impacts players worldwide.

Tianjin Quanjian owner Shu Yuhui has said he had looked into a move for Chelsea's Diego Costa and drawn up a contract for Monaco's Radamel Falcao before the Chinese Football Association (CFA) announced rule changes on overseas players.

On Monday, the CFA imposed a reduction of the number of foreign players able to be fielded in the forthcoming season, which begins in March, warning that limits would be imposed in order to reduce "irrational investment."

Shu, who said he had also been exploring moves for Paris Saint-Germain's Edison Cavani and Real Madrid's Karim Benzema, has been working with agent Jorge Mendes on his plans to strengthen the squad.

"Our club had a massive investment plan for the new season but it was tightened up by the new rules," Shu told Tianjin Sports Channel.

"I made an appointment with Mendes and he came to my hometown to visit me. At that time, we were interested in signing Costa.

"We need an out-and-out striker so we made a bid for Benzema. We also made an attempt for Falcao.

"As a matter of fact, the club had even prepared the contracts for Falcao and Raul Jimenez, but the new rules forced us to give up on them.

"PSG told us Cavani would only be allowed to leave in June, even though the player himself was willing to join us. The same can be said for Costa because Chelsea will also only let him leave in June.

"However, the new season of CSL will almost have reached the halfway stage in June -- and we can't wait that long."

Shu, who made his fortune in herbal medicine, said Tianjin had now turned their attention to Fiorentina striker Nikola Kalinic.

The club gained promotion to the top flight under coach Fabio Cannavaro, with the Italian steering the club to the China League One title last season.

"We are currently discussing whether to hold onto [former Brazil striker] Luis Fabiano," Shu said. "But Cannavaro told us he preferred Kalinic, who would perfectly fit into the team's style of play."

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Erm.. Good? Spent that damned money on player development and the youth infrastructure. You have a billion people, I'm pretty sure you'll do better out of that in the long-run.

Yaya Toure declines big offers in China in favour of Premier League stay
ESPN Staff


Yaya Toure wants to stay in the Premier League even if Manchester City do want to bring him back this summer, according to multiple reports that said the midfielder turned down an enormous contract from China.

The 33-year-old rebuffed interest from the Chinese Super League this summer and the Manchester Evening News and the BBC both reported on Tuesday that not even a fresh wage offer of £430,000 a week could not sway him to leave England.

That total would have netted Toure £22 million a year -- double what he reportedly makes at Man City.

Toure has worked his way back into the City squad in recent months, and manager Pep Guardiola said in December there would be time to discuss a possible return after his contract expires this summer.

But The Telegraph reports that Toure has a "strong preference" to find a new Premier League club if he is not wanted at City beyond this season.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Borussia Dortmund agree deal for Adrian Ramos to join Chongqing Lifan
BY STEPHAN UERSFELD


Borussia Dortmund have reached an "agreement in principle" with Chinese Super League club Chongqing Lifan over the transfer of attacker Adrian Ramos for a reported transfer fee of around €12 million.

Ramos, 30, is set to join La Liga strugglers Granada, who are under the same ownership, on loan before moving to China in the summer.

The Colombian requested a transfer twice in 2016, and has now been granted his wish to leave the Bundesliga side after making 79 competitive appearances in which he scored 19 goals.

"We have reached an agreement in principle," BVB media director Sascha Fligge told multiple media outlets on Tuesday, adding that final talks over the transfer will take place in the next few days.

Although BVB currently are without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is at the African Nations Cup in Gabon, Dortmund believe that in Germany internationals Andre Schurrle, Marco Reus and Mario Gotze they have enough options in attack.

"I would have liked to keep him, and regret it," BVB coach Thomas Tuchel said. "Adrian expressed his desire to leave in every transfer period. It's different being the No. 2 striker at his age than at a younger age.

"With a heavy heart, we've accepted his wish, but his decision for more playing time is understandable. Auba will come back soon, and he's our starter. We'll have other options until then."

Tuchel said Dortmund have not identified a replacement for Ramos, adding: "It's not like we have an idea about that right now. To allow Adrian a transfer was an isolated decision."

B.Z. reported that Hertha Berlin, Ramos' previous club in Germany, are set to receive a windfall of around 15 percent of the transfer fee thanks to a clause included in the paperwork when selling him to Dortmund for around €9.7m in 2014.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Terry to join Costa in China move.
By Chris Borg


Terry to join Costa at Tianjin Quanjian?

Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian are reported to be the next port of call for Chelsea striker Diego Costa -- and teammate John Terry could join him there, according to the Sun.

Former England captain Terry is leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, and the Sun says Tianjin "are ready to come up with a lucrative two-year deal to tempt the 36-year-old to the Far East."

The club's owner Shu Yuhui wants to sign up to three big names from European football -- and the report claims he "is one of the players in his sights."

Meanwhile, the Sun also reports that Chelsea are on "high alert" after David Stockdale's contract talks with Brighton "collapsed."

Chelsea had originally targeted the goalkeeper -- out of contract at the end of the season -- when Asmir Begovic was linked with Bournemouth in the winter, but neither move went through.

Chinese Super League in crisis with 13 clubs set to forfeit involvement next season due to unpaid salaries
BY HAMISH MACKAY


The clubs in question have been told they must settle their arrears by August 15 and send proof to the Chinese Football Association (CFA) or face being denied entry to the league

Thirteen Chinese Super League clubs could be forced to forfeit their participation in the competition next season after failing to pay their players properly.

The clubs in question have been told they must settle their arrears by August 15 and send proof to the Chinese Football Association (CFA) or face being denied entry to the league.

The teams named in a July 11 correspondence between the CFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) include current champions Guangzhou Evergrande as well as big spending Shanghai SIPG, whose squad boasts the likes of Hulk, Ricardo Carvalho and £60million midfielder Oscar.

Shanghai Shenhua, who have £615,000-per-week Carlos Tevez on their books, are also among the teams named.

Five lower league sides have also been accused of failing to pay some of their players' salaries and bonuses.

Of the 16 top tier sides, only Yanbian Fude, Henan Jianye and Guizhou Hengfeng have no unmet financial obligations.

This controversy comes six months after the Chinese government moved to intervene in club spending.

The country's top sports governing body accused teams earlier this year of the “grave phenomenon” of “burning money” on foreign players instead of investing in youth development.

A spokesman for China’s General Administration of Sport set out plans to “set a cap for clubs’ expenditures for buying players, and inhibit unreasonable investment”.

The crackdown is designed to “combat signing bonuses, shadow contracts, and other violations, and sternly handle clubs, players or brokers that demand or seek signing bonuses”.

Clubs accused of failing to pay players properly:

Super League: Shanghai Shenhua, Shanghai SIPG, Beijing Guoan, Changchun Yatai, Chongqing Dangdai Lifan, Hebei China Fortune, Guangzhou Evergrande, Guangzhou R&F, Jiangsu Suning, Liaoning Whowin, Shandong Luneng Taishan, Tianjin Quanjian, Tianjin TEDA.

League One: Beijing Renhe, Dalian Transcendence, Shanghai Shenxin, Shijiazhuang Ever Bright.

League Two: Qingdao Jonoon.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
