What could be better than affording to pay €13,112,710 per season for a 35-year-old striker on your debut as a football club?

But why are they all in the Middle East or China?

Do you remember Darío Conca? Guangzhou Evergrande signed him in July 2011 on a €10,6 million yearly wage. He was the 3rd best-paid player in the world at the time, after Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Soon after being relegated in 2009 following a match-fixing scandal, Evergrande Real Estate Group assumed control and began investing in the squad.

It was probably the start of all this. Only one month later, Anzhi Makhachkala signed Samuel Eto’o on a €20 million yearly wage.

Who do you think will be the next player to give in to the temptation of oil money?
