Antonio Conte: Chinese football is a danger

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is aware of the danger the Chinese League is representing.

The Italian believes the limitless wages which Chinese clubs offer European players in order to join them are dangerous and could push the price tags even more.

Paul Pogba cost Manchester United €105 million and has been so far the world-record transfer. But recording to the CSL, amounts like this could become usual in the future.

Chelsea's Oscar has been linked with a move to the mentioned league, where they would offer him a £400,000-a-week salary.

"The Chinese market is a danger for all teams in the world, not only for Chelsea, but all teams in the world," said Conte.

But speaking about the Premier League, he added: "This league is fantastic, a great opportunity [for players], a great honour and we should be very proud we play in this league".

Conte refused to confirm Oscar's move, saying: "I don't know exactly the amount, or the situation. Now we have to wait - when it is the moment you will know".
