New Big Player: The Chinese Are Changing The Football World

The Chinese Super League has irreversibly started to change the football world. Transfers made in 2016 by the Chinese top tier clubs have definitely made their competition a new big time player in the football world.

Transfers that are currently top news around the globe are the ones of the Brazilian midfielder, Oscar, from Chelsea to Shanghai SIPG and the one of the legendary Argentinian, Carlos Tevez, from Boca Juniors to Shanghai Shenhua. The Chinese have spared no expense to take your football enjoyment to extra time.

For the Brazilian international his new club paid around €60 million Euros, whilst the 32-year-old Argentinian legend - whose transfer came with a lot of conflicting information - was paid 10.5 million. Of course in football, there is no official info on the actual transfer fee paid, so all these numbers were taken from the most reliable source around the Transfermarkt.

Regarding their wage, the Brazilian will earn €24 million Euros per year, whilst the Argentinian will earn somewhere around €19 million. There were talks that Tevez will be earning €37 million per year, but later it was found out that this number is related to a two-year contract. Just to put this in perspective, Messi and Ronaldo earn €22 million per year, which means that Oscar's arrival to China has made him the most paid footballer in the word. Whilst if you go to Wintingo online casino you won't be earning as much as the Brazilian, but there is a €500 welcome bonus.

Let us now take a look at how much has the transfer spending risen in the last four season in the Chinese Super League. Just in the last season, the top-tier clubs from China have spent €406 million Euros. For example, that's only 60 million less than the Germans. In 2014/2015 it was the amount of 146 million Euros, and in the two seasons before that, the amounts were 91 and 63 million Euros spent on new signings. Whilst on Wintingo online casino you'll get a 100% match bonus for each of your first 5 deposits, up to €100 in your first season.

So far in this season the Chinese have spent €222 million Euros, but considering that Chinese league starts in March it is really likely that the last year's record will be broken, as we can expect from them to be spending in this Winter's transfer window.

And which players cost the most? At the top of the list is already mentioned Oscar with €60 million Euros. Behind the ex-Chelsea midfielder, we have his countryman and new team-mate, Hulk. In top five we have two more Brazilians, Alex Teixeira and Ramires, and Colombian striker Jackson Martinez.

However, this list could change in the near future, because some big names like; Di Maria, Cavani and Pepe are on the list of wishes from the Chinese top teams.

Those who have high ambitions in Europe, China will not be a viable option for some time, but we can see that money spent from Chinese clubs is breaking many barriers in world football and has arguably made their league second most wanted destination outside Europe, overtaking MLS in the process.
