Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is being widely touted to join Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian after they offered Dortmund €70Million for his services. The Gabonese striker is expected to earn a whopping €30million per year if he agrees to the contract on offer.
A number of big names were rumoured to be in for Aubameyang with Real Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea leading the chase . Dortmund CEO Hand-Joachim Watzke initially put a £63Million price tag on their star striker thinking it might put off potential suiters, probably not expecting the Chinese side to put in such a big bid.
Is it fair to say the recent influx of Chinese money into world football is ruining it? Or is that hypocritical coming from European sides such as those in England who have been dominating football recently in terms of money being invested?
