Big transaction & Football Stars in China are close to the end.
Top no chinese footballers could soon become a thing of the past .Football authorities in China announced measures to curb player salaries.
Salaries are to be capped as clubs stave off financial ruin, with overseas recruits to the Chinese Super League in the upcoming winter transfer window limited to earning 49 000€ per week.
Additionally, a ceiling of 10m yuan (€1.3m) has been placed on Chinese players’ salaries.
The new rules were confirmed after a Christmas Day meeting of the Chinese Football Association and do not extend to bonuses that can be paid, which could give clubs some flexibility to pursue star signings.
Clubs will also be permitted to sign a fifth player from overseas, up from the current quota of four, but will only be allowed to field four foreigners on the pitch at any one time.
Officials have routinely sought to curb excessive spending in the Chinese Super League after a major outlay on foreign stars ahead of the 2017 season saw the arrival of players such as Brazilian star Oscar (25 M€/y) and Carlos Tevez (17M€/y)from Argentina on huge salaries.
Chinese Super League Stars :
Hulk ( 20M€/Y- Shanghai SIPG), Oscar ( 25M€/Y-Shanghai SIPG), Yannick Carrasco (Dalian Yifang), Marek Hamsik (Dalian Yifang), Marko Arnautovic (Shanghai SIPG), Marouane Fellaini (Shandong Luneng Taishan), Paulinho (Guangzhou Evergrande), Cédric Bakambu (Beijing Guoan)
Gareth Bale is an old story for Chinese football fans as well ..
