With many high-profile stars currently playing in the Chinese Super League, we decided to take a look at 10 of the league’s highest ever transfers!
China’s top division is a league on the rise, with a number of big-name players joining the Chinese Super League almost every transfer window these days.
Carlos Tevez recently joined Shanghai Shenhua, although he does not make this list as there is a dispute regarding the transfer fee his club spent to lure him away from Boca Juniors in Argentina.
The most expensive transfer list does contain several massive names in football, with Oscar’s recent move to Shanghai SIPG being the league’s highest recorded transfer fee.
Hulk’s move from Zenit St Petersburg to Shanghai SIPG is in at second, while Alex Teixeira, Jackson Martinez and Ramires follow respectively.
Axel Witsel also recently just moved to the league, and his transfer is sixth in the list, while Elkeson is the only player in the top 10 to have moved from one Chinese club to another.
Former Arsenal star Gervinho follows the Brazilian star, while Shandong Luneng’s Graziano Pelle and Ricardo Goulart complete the top 10 respectively.
