unlikely imo, too much money in the Chinese Super League. He wouldn't get half as much if he went to Europe.

Yeah, I was wondering if this is a problem with all the big money leagues, like in China and the Gulf and to some extent MLS, where there's more incentive to be a well-paid big fish in a small pond than to actually get really good

Might be wrong but the thing with the Chinese league is you need quite of lot of home-grown domestic players in your squad. So that means there's a lot of competition for the best domestic players and therefore the better players will get paid an awful lot compared to a player of similar ability abroad. Makes sense why most would stay.

Not only that, but he would be impossible to replace for his club. In a league where you are only allowed three foreigners, having the only proper quality (I think, I only go by what people say) Chinese player is such a huge advantage. It is almost like they are allowed another foreigner compared to the opposition.
