The Chinese Super League side will pay € 60 million to welcome the player’s services. Atletico Madrid will receive € 22.5 million, Monaco (the player’s former club) will get € 7.5 million and € 30 million will be paid in taxes.
The deal is close to being finalized: Juventus and Arsenal must give up and see Carrasco move to China.
