Chelsea Star To Become Best Paid Player In The World?

Chelsea Star To Become Best Paid Player In The World?

By David Kappel - Apr 21, 2017 07:00 PM @kappilinho

One of Chelsea’s superstars could reportedly become the world's highest paid player if he accepts a reported world record offer from a Chinese club, which would see him earn him almost twice as much as Cristiano Ronaldo does.

Click through the gallery to see the 10 current highest paid players, according to information from Tancredi Palmeri and a recent study on football's top earners.

According to ESPN, Diego Costa could be offered €777 000 (R11 million) a week by a Chinese side, believed to be Tianjin Quanjian.

The Super League side was linked with the striker in January but could not make a move happen. Costa was apparently keen to leave for China, but Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was not prepared to let the forward go.

The Spaniard has scored only two goals in nine games since the English transfer window closed, a run that saw the league leaders drop eight points and their advantage over Tottenham Hotspur melt to just four points.

With the reported wages of €777 000, Costa would overtake current world record earner Carlos Tevez, who is said to pocket €770 000 (R10.85 million), as well as Cristiano Ronaldo, who is on €410 000 (R5.8 million) after his contract extension at Real Madrid last year.

Do you think Chelsea should let Costa go to China? Have your say in the comments section below.

Diego Costa,though a good striker,but Chelsea should make money by allowing him to be bought by the Chinese team.Batsuayi can fill the void if given enough game time

@mafetaphala..... Sometimes comments like urs my broer ar jst lacking knwladge to substantiate de facts. Soccer like any career pple they strive to get money to sustain their family and their future. It is worse unlike any academic career soccer is very short. So Y not u take more money as it come while u still can.

Soccer players are no longer paid for what they do on the pitch. Money is just donated to them.
