The Costa circus arrives again

Sat Jan 14, 2017 10:26 am

Smashing player but a ticking time bomb. One bid from China and his head is gone. Has fallen out with Conte just as they're looking likely to win the league.

I remember starting a thread last year and asking if anyone was worried about China's increasing influence in football. Well they're becoming a much stronger pull with the money they wave around so Europe better watch out. Innate human nature is rather greedy and that greed is being exploited.

Doesn't seem to be a massive pull on actual European players at the minute, but it's worth keeping an eye on

I understand players at the end of their career looking for a final massive payday going there, but those players still in their 20s who go there clearly have no interest in their career, future reputation, legacy. Its all about the money and whilst I can accept that motive for those in low/average paid jobs, these players are already earning a kings ransom every week and it just comes across to me as not really having a love of the game, just the cheque at the end of it.

I would just let them go. You release a player that clearly don't want to stay and get a big chunk of money to spend on replacement. Win win.

I get a player in their 30s going for a final pay check like Tevez but Costa is still in his prime. Don't even get me started on Oscar and co.

Another example of why signing Brazilian or Argentinian players isn't a good idea.

The chinese club can't sign him cause of new regulation on foreign players. Lol
