French website Le 10 Sport reported yesterday that Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua has offered a fee around €15m for the French striker. They are ready to offer him €7m-a-year wages on a four-year-deal, however, Remy is holding out for a wage package of around €9m per year.
The same media publication has covered an Exclusive article today, where they claim that another Chinese club have joined the race and have a better offer for Remy and Chelsea. This unnamed Chinese club, which Le 10 think is Hebei China Fortune, is ready to offer €20m for Remy.
Remy has hardly featured for the Blues this season and Chelsea probably will not hesitate for a moment to agree to such proposals. In fact, they have given a green signal for the transfer to go through.
The report says that Chelsea haven’t closed the door on Shanghai Shenhua as yet, but obviously the Blues are more tempted by the offer made by the second Chinese club.
The decision now rests on Remy, who could say ‘yes’ to the move. He has no future at Chelsea, and should look to move elsewhere to get regular games. A move to any other European club would have been an ideal choice, but he should grab every opportunity that comes in his way at the moment.
