QPR’s Tjaronn Chery is set to leave the club and accept a massive contract offer from Chinese club Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng according to a report from BBC Sport.
The 28-year-old forward had been a big signing for the R’s when he moved to the club in the summer of 2015 from Gronigen, mainly as they had beat a number of Premier League clubs to his signing. However the relationship between club and player has become sour and Chery made a transfer request as he attempted to leave Loftus Road.
Initially, it seemed like Chery would be staying in the Sky Bet Championship as both Aston Villa, who had tried to sign him in 2015, and Wolves made approaches for the forward, but now reports are suggesting that he will be the latest player to go for the big money now available in China. He has agreed a deal with Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng and will now join the likes of Oscar, Ramires and Carlos Tevez in the Chinese Super League.
In recent years, Chinese clubs have started spending massive amounts of money in order to improve the quality of their league and attract more attention from abroad. The aforementioned Tevez signed for Shanghai Shenhua, who have also had Didier Drogba on their books, for a stunning £71m which would make even the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid think twice. Even players completely unknown out of China go for amazing sums, with the twice China capped player Zhang Lu signing for Tianjin Quanjin for a fee of £8m. With these sort of fees and big wages being offered out, it is no surprise that Chery is making the move to China.
