Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian are considering an £80m bid for Chelsea striker Diego Costa, 28. (Sun on Sunday)


Not surprised by Witsel by going to Zenit he's shown he's interested in following the money

As for Costa I think that's agents trying to use the interest to get a bumper deal at Chelsea as he looks happy there again



apparently, he has rejected Real too, to join the Chinese league

at least he has been consistent about , wanting to play for money. I for one wanted to see him in one of the top leagues

Witsel has won titles in Portugal and Russia playing Champions League football the only thing this move might hurt is his international career as there's so much competition with the Belguim side.

I think the big name clubs only really wanted him because he was on a free so they could flip him for a decent profit after a year not sure he's actually good enough for these clubs I've only ever really seen him as a slightly better version of Fellaini he's the version of Fellaini I think we hoped we were signing. He's a strong, athletic centre mid who's pretty good with the ball but not sure he'd be a starter at the top sides he'd be a squad player.

Thing is with these guys most of them come from next to nothing aren't to many footballers around the world who come from middle class backgrounds and the money they make can set their family up for generations and the sums being offered by China make it almost impossible to turn down.

Not the most reliable source

Twitter is going crazy with reports of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s proposed move to China. Tancredi Palmeri was the journalist who reported the link and he has a track record of being wrong – or plain old lying.

In the past, he’s claimed that Radamel Falcao to Real Madrid was a done deal, that Nani and Chicharito would leave Man United in a part exchange move for Arturo Vidal. He’s also claimed that Gonzalo Higuain would be an Arsenal player. He tends to break exclusives with CAPITAL LETTERS FOR EXTRA CREDIBILITY.

On this occasion, he wrote: “BOOM! AUBAMEYANG HAS RECEIVED AN OFFER OF 41m€ PER YEAR FROM SHANGHAI, AND 150m€ FOR BORUSSIA DORTMUND, BOTH WOULD BEAT WORLD RECORDS!”

Then again, China is rich

With the way that clubs from the Chinese Super League are spending money, it seems very plausible. Aubameyang would be the highest profile player to move there and it would be a huge statement for the league. But surely, even if this was true, he wouldn’t want to leave Europe. He could probably go to any club he wants. Real Madrid are keen.

It's obvious they want to add a real prime player target he has to be one that is considered gettable but I think he will wait until the summer to see if Madrid come in

It's only a matter of time before China get one of those guys imo there's just to much money on offer

My guess is they'll want to make it so attractive that they can force their way into the champions league or actually create a football NFL/NBA model

The key thing and this is happening in a big way is that in 10-15 years time China is producing top class players of their own for the national team

China intends to limit the amount clubs are spending on overseas players after the repeated breaking of the Asian transfer record.

A government spokesman said clubs have been “burning money” on importing talent. Shanghai SIPG spent £52m on the Brazil midfielder Oscar and Carlos Tévez joined Shanghai Shenhua to reportedly become the world’s best-paid player.

A spokesman of the general administration of sport told state media in an interview the government would “regulate and restrain high-priced signings, and make reasonable restrictions on players’ high incomes”.

Chinese clubs broke the Asian transfer record four times last year after China’s president, Xi Jinping, said he wanted to transform the country into a “football superpower”. The spokesman said the government would “set the upper limit” for transfer fees and income, and control “irrational investment”. “We must take building 100-year clubs as the goal,” he said, adding that clubs’ financial supervision would be strengthened, and their spending on players would be controlled. “We will remove the seriously insolvent clubs from the professional league.”

The Chinese FA is to reduce the number of overseas players allowed in a team from five to four.

Think he got a new contract after that "interest" and has hardly scored since.

Chinese teams apparently targeting English players now rumours big offers could go in for Alli, Kane or Sturridge.

Galatasaray confirm Lukas Podolski is on his way to the Chinese Super League

The Chinese Super League has landed its latest acquisition in its quest for world football supremacy.

In the last year, the Chinese league has stepped up its bid to become a major global player by attracting several big stars from Europe.

The likes of Hulk, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Graziano Pelle were already out in the Far East last season, and in the past few weeks they’ve managed to lure Oscar from Chelsea, Carlos Tevez from Boca Juniors, and Alex Witsel from Zenit St Petersburg.

And now they’ve made another big statement, with Lukas Podolski set to join the Chinese movement.

Podolski moving to Beijing Guoan

Galatasaray director Levent Nazifoglu confirmed as much today, telling the local press in Antalya:

‘The transfer of Lukas Podolski to Beijing Guoan is in its final stage. The player is in favour of the move; it has to happen this week or it won’t.’

The added caveat is interesting: it seems Gala want the Chinese club to hurry up, and will only sell the German on their terms.

Podolski has spent the last few years with the Turks, after leaving Arsenal.

Watch this space.

Robert Lewandowski rejects enormous offer from Chinese Super League

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has rejected an absolutely enormous offer from China, according to his agent.

It should be made clear that ever since the Chinese Super League started picking up players such as Carlos Tevez and Oscar for huge fees, there have been a lot of rumours about players rejecting the money on offer.

So, according to Robert Lewandowski’s agent, the Polish striker signed on at Bayern Munich until 2021, despite an absolutely obscene offer from China.

“More than Carlos Tevez earns”

Lewandowski’s agent, Cezary Kucharski, told SportoweFakty: “I was contacted by an agent who brings stars to China. The club name wasn’t mentioned. If Lewy had decided to move to China, his salary would have been significantly higher than €40m, which means more than Carlos Tevez earns.”

Kucharski added: “It’s obvious: Lewy is not only younger but also a better player than Tevez. Robert is not for sale right now,” but I never say never. Life offers several solutions.”

According to the Polish press, the unnamed Chinese club was willing to pay $200m for Lewandowski, which works out at 172 million pounds.

The fact Lewandowski refused the move suggest that it was never even an option for Bayern Munich to consider.

Three weeks ago, Lewandowski signed a new contract at Bayern Munich until 2021.


I hope some other chinese club is coming with bid over 60million for Rooney and if rooney accepts the move he will always be a cult hero among fans :wink:

Shanghai SIPG have completed the signing of former Chelsea and Real Madrid defender Ricardo Carvalho, according to the AFC Champions League's Twitter account.

If that story about the state department becoming concerned about spending is true then I wonder how much longer they'll be allowed to keep up this spending spree might only last another 2-3 years so could be a case of take the cash while you can for a lot of these guys.

Chinese Super League clubs will only be allowed to play three non-Chinese players per game in their next season - which begins in March.

A rule change has reduced the number of foreigners allowed in a move which could slow down the wave of big-money signings from Europe.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been linked with a move to China that would be worth £30m a year.

A statement said the new measures will address "irrational investments".

Previously the rule was "4+1" - four foreigners of any nationality plus one Asian player in a matchday squad.

Teams will now also be required to name two Chinese players aged under 23 in their matchday squads, with at least one in the starting XI, with the Chinese Football Association also looking into "signature fees and other illegal activities" in recent transfers.

Chelsea midfielders Oscar and John Mikel Obi have already moved to China this month, while former Manchester United and Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez reportedly became the world's highest-paid player when he joined Shanghai Shenhua last month.

Shenhua would be one club hit by the new rules as they have six non-Chinese players in their squad, including Tevez, former Chelsea forward Demba Ba and ex-Newcastle striker Obafemi Martins.

Costa has been linked with a move to Tianjin Quanjian, who signed Belgium midfielder Axel Witsel for a salary of more than £15m a year this month.


Fair play on the government for stepping in the money being spent was getting ridiculous and most of it comes from state owned investment companies and I don't think it was really making much difference in terms of making the league more attractive to broadcasters although it might improve attendances.

Tianjin confirm bids for Costa, Benzema, Cavani and Falcao failed

New rules set by the Chinese Football Association ended the aspirations of the CSL club to lure one of four big-name forwards from Europe

Tianjin Quanjian owner Shu Yuhui confirmed the cashed-up Chinese Super League outfit had plans to sign Diego Costa, Karim Benzema, Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao until China's Football Association (CFA) made changes to the limit of foreigners.

Having already lured Belgium international Axel Witsel to the CSL, Tianjin - coached by former Real Madrid and Juventus defender Fabio Cannavaro - had been linked with further moves for Chelsea's Costa & Co.

And Shu revealed Tianjin had been in talks with the Spain international, Real Madrid striker Benzema, Paris Saint-Germain's Cavani and Monaco hitman Falcao before the CFA announced new rules regarding foreign players, with teams in the CSL forced to name only three of their imports in starting XIs from this season.

"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.

"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 [Benfica striker] Raul Jimenez. We had already reached agreement with them on wages and bonus. The pair were expected to sign the contracts, but the new rules forced us to give up on them."

Delving deeper into Tianjin's transfer plans, Shu revealed meetings with Jorge Mendes, whose clients include Cristiano Ronaldo among others.

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

"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 would only let him leave in June. However, the new season of CSL will almost reach the halfway stage in June, we can't wait so long."

While the arrivals of these players appear unlikely, Fiorentina star Nikola Kalinic is nearing a move to Haihe Educational Football Stadium in Tianjin.

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

Tianjin are set to play in China's top flight in 2017 after Cannavaro guided the club to promotion last season.

The club linked to Costa now turning attention to Leicester striker Islam Slimani €45m fee which is 3 times what Leicester paid. Not sure if he can go as he played for Sporting before moving to Leicester and FIFA rules say you can't play for 3 teams in 1 year
