The CSL’s transfer window opened on the 1st January and it only closes on February the 28th, which is a slight worry for many European clubs as they could lose a player or two.

Spanish publication Cadena COPE are reporting that the Belgium international, Jannick Carrasco, could be moving to Dalian Yifang for €70 million (R1 billion) in the next week. The winger was left out of his side's crucial UEFA Europa League clash this week and it was reportedly down to the player being in advanced negotiations with the club.

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic has recently also been tipped to move to China, and there are rumours that Hebei China Fortune is the club interested in his services. According to Sports Illustrated, the 31-year Croatian is not interested in leaving the Italian giants and especially because they are still in the UEFA Champions League.

Spanish publication Sport has linked FC Barcelona stalwart Iniesta with Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian. The Spaniard has reportedly been offered €35 million (R499 million) a season to play for the Asian side. The report suggests that Iniesta has not said no to the offer, but will only make up his mind come the end of March.
