Chinese Club Complete N17bn Deal For La Liga Striker

Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan have completed a £35.5m (N17bn) deal for Villarreal striker Cedric Bakambu, reports L’Equipe.
Bakambu signed a two-year contract extension with Spanish club Villarreal in the summer but has now secured a lucrative move to China after making a bright start to the season.

The 26-year-old has reportedly agreed a four-year deal with the Chinese Super League side and his fee will eclipse the £34m (N16bn) Villarreal received for Eric Bailly in 2016.

Villarreal are currently in sixth place but the loss of top goalscorer Bakambu represents a huge blow for their ambition of finishing in a European spot this season.

In fact, only four players have scored more La Liga goals than the DR Congo international thus far.
