The confirmed sale of Oscar for a fee of somewhere between £52-60m to China has stunned the football world. Antonio Conte has warned that no club is safe from the riches in the Far East.

As with any big money move there is debate and as a result divided opinion. You could understand it if the player was coming to the end of his career and was looking for that last pay-off before they call it a day. However, for Oscar in particular at the age of just 25 it has provoked questions of his motives with the level of competition being deemed as far inferior to the Premier League.

I have had my say on the deal on this Blog previously here so if you have missed it, check it out but it has been interesting to read the opinions of other players, ex-footballers and managers in the game such as Jose Mourinho who has slated the move.

The money that has been thrown about by these clubs in China is quite simply ridiculous and the salaries they are offering some players are mind-blowing with Oscar reportedly about to sign a deal worth a whopping £400,000 per week. It's a real indication that the Chinese League with it's owners and representatives are serious about building something special and a League that will rival some of the biggest in Europe.

Speaking of the deal confirmed before it was officially confirmed, Antonio Conte spoke of the wealth in China and the amounts these clubs are willing to offer clubs stating that no-one is safe. He said:

“The Chinese market is a danger for all, for all the teams in the world, not only for Chelsea.

But I think we must concentrate on our work, not think that in China there is a lot of money and they can arrive to take the players (there).”

Conte however was keen to praise the Premier League despite what is happening in the far east and said:

"I think this League is fantastic. To play in this League is a great opportunity, an honour. 

You must be very proud to play in this League because now it's the best league in the world to play. For this reason, I don't worry about this. I think that every single player is the owner of his own future.” - Source: London Evening Standard.

It looks like the Chinese League is here to stay and they will continue to offer silly money for players to try to add them to their League. I guess it comes down to the individual players and their own personal motivation as to whether or not to accept it.
