The Chinese Dream: Crazy Salary for Dario Conca

The American Dream is dead, now comes the Chinese Dream.

Indeed, China is more than a dream for Dario Conca, it is a beautiful reality. The Argentine player, voted best player in the Brazilian league last season with Fluminense, has just signed a three-year contract with the club Guangzhou Evergrande in China.

Incredibly, the player will receive an annual salary of € 10.6 million, becoming the fifth highest paid player in world football, behind Cristiano Ronaldo (12) , Rooney (11.5), Messi (11) and Yaya Toure (10.8). And we are talking here of a player who has never been selected for the national team.

Liu Yongzhuo, the financier of the club, said he made a superb operation involving Conca. After the Russians and the Qataris, now the Chinese begin to spend excessively in the panorama of world football.
