Chinese Super League: 10 Players who Might be Available Soon

Thirteen clubs from the Chinese Super League have been threatened with expulsion from the competition next season for failure to pay their players, writes Mark Wyatt.

Each club has been given until August 15 to settle their debts and to then submit proof to the Chinese Football Association (CFA).

The clubs involved include big spenders Shanghai SIPG, who forked out £60million for ex-Chelsea midfielder Oscar and Jiangsu Suning, who spent a combined £65m on Ramires and Alex Teixeira in 2016.

Shanghai Shenhua are also on the list, who have been paying Argentinian Carlos Tevez a record breaking £615,000 each week. If the clubs fail to meet their deadline there could be a mass exodus of high-profile players leaving the Chinese Super League.

We’ve compiled a list of 10 players who could be available on the cheap very soon.
Carlos Tevez Earns a Mega Wage in China

Oscar - Shanghai SIPG
Shanghai broke the Chinese Super League transfer record when they signed Oscar from Chelsea in January. But the player hasn’t quite found his feet at the club and could be available at a bargain price should Shangai be forced to sell their prized possession.

Ezequiel Lavezzi - Hebei China Fortune
The Argentina international won four successive league titles with Paris Saint-Germain in a trophy laden spell in France before he made a switch to China. The winger signed a contract rumoured to be worth €10million a year.

Graziano Pellé - Shandong Luneng Taishan
Ex-Southampton striker Pellé hit the ground running in England and it earned him a string of call-ups to the Italian national side. But following his £12m move to Shandong, he has fallen out of favour with the Azzurri and a move back to Europe could spark a comeback in time for the World Cup in Russia.

Hulk - Shanghai SIPG
At the time of his signing Hulk was linked with moves to a host of Europe’s elite clubs, such was his goalscoring impact at Zenit Saint Petersburg and Porto. The forward eventually chose to join Shanghai though in a deal worth £45m and although he hasn’t had much game time, he would still be a terrific signing aged 30.

Axel Witsel - Tianjin Quanjian
Belgian midfielder Witsel moved to Tianjin in a move worth £17m this year. The 28-year-old still has a lot to offer and is one of the first names on the team sheet when his country come calling.

Carlos Tevez - Shanghai Shenhua
Tevez became the highest paid player in the world when he moved to China, raking in an incredible £615,000 a week. How much the 33-year-old has left to offer remains to be seen but if Shanghai sell, it will most likely be a move back to his native Argentina.

Ramires - Jiangsu Suning
Versatile midfielder Ramires joined Jiangsu Suning for £25m in 2016 and was sent off in his competitive debut before netting three minutes into his league debut. The Brazilian international won the Champions League and Europa League with Chelsea and could definitely still do a job should he be sold.

Papiss Cisse - Shandong Luneng Taishan
Former Newcastle favourite Papiss Cisse could be a viable option for a number of clubs. The 32-year-old would be a gamble, but rule nothing out.

Paulinho - Guangzhou Evergrande
Paulinho left Spurs with his tail between his legs in a deal worth just under £10m in 2015. Since then his form has improved dramatically and he has been tipped to join Barcelona for over double the price he signed for.

Should Guangzhou not settle their arrears by August 15 though, he could become available a lot sooner and a lot cheaper.

John Obi Mikel - Tianjin TEDA
Mikel famously took 186 league games to find the net for Chelsea during his time there, but it didn’t take him quite as long in China as he scored on his 3rd league appearance for Tianjin TEDA. Despite seemingly being around for years, the Nigerian is still just 30. Would you take him to your club? - The Mirror
