Top footballers in this country are being tempted to join the gravy train heading for the Chinese Football League.
Wouldn’t you think give some thought about earning £400,000 per week?
Not bad work if you can get it.
The question to be asked is, where is all this money coming from?
Is it American-backed? Is it sponsorship? Is it even somehow donated by the Chinese government to put the country on the world football map?
What are the consequences?
A glut of top players and managers flying East to ply their trade in Shanghai?
Premier League matches being played in Beijing?
Who knows? Anything could happen in football.
One thing is for sure. Football is no longer the working man’s game.
It’s more like a play-thing for billionaires.
