The Chinese Club Factor

Recommended Posts

In real life, Chinese Clubs are spending stupendous and unimaginable amounts to buy players from European based leagues. The usefulness of this is it can help FFP situations of clubs. Particularly in many instances, clubs find it very hard to sell some players-Chinese clubs are willing to buy such players for top price. No European clubs are willing to match such wage and fee. This has implication even in FM. 

Now i play La Liga in FM. And i ve had UAE based clubs sign players on Bosman offering them massive wages. But still i havent seen any non European club offer massive transfer fees. 

Is this possible/planned in FM?

I've seen Wanyama go there for £53M - The highest player I've sold there is Bolasie for £27M.

I think it really slows down in the later season as the squads are limited to 5 foreign players. As they offer massive wages then these players stay there for their duration of their contract and cannot be sold due to these wages. In later years the club can't go out and buy more due to their already massive wage bill and lack of registration space in their squad.

Chinese Club a lot of money because of China's top leaders like football, but the level of China's national football team is still worse than Thailand.

In China, the value of the football market has nothing to do with the ability, a CA is 90+ Chinese player's transfer fee can often to more than 10 million euros.
