Graziano Pelle now 6th highest paid player in the world after Shandong Luneng move

Graziano Pelle now 6th highest paid player in the world after Shandong Luneng move

Why did Graziano Pelle move to Shandong Luneng?
After just a few days of speculation, it was confirmed on Monday that Italy striker Graziano Pelle would be signing for Shandong Luneng in China.
This is of course the latest big money transfer the Chinese have completed and Pelle will play up front with former Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse at Shandong Luneng.
But, many were asking why Pelle moved to Shandong Luneng when his career could well have continued in the Premier League after a couple of solid campaigns with Southampton and a good Euro 2016, despite a poor penalty miss for Italy versus Germany.

€350k per week
The big draw for Pelle was the astronomical wages on offer in China, where the 30-year-old is absolutely made for life, simply by seeing out his contract, or perhaps even by just completing one season there.
It might show little sporting ambition by moving to China, but Pelle is now the sixth highest paid player in world football.
Only Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Hulk, Neymar and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will make more money from their clubs this coming season, than Pelle.

€50k per day

The Italian striker now earns 2.5 million euros per season more than Bayern Munich and Germany superstar Thomas Muller.
When you consider that Pelle earns €50k per day, even clubs like Chelsea and Everton, who were supposedly interested in the Italian striker, cannot compete.

Would you trade in a potential World Cup place with Italy for astronomical sums of money?
