There’s currently a lot of chatter going around regarding the future of Tottenham’s Mousa Dembélé, and for good reason.
The Belgian midfielder is out of contract in the summer, and a number of Italian clubs are hovering around his case, aware they can officially speak to him about joining them on a free in the summer come January.
That hasn’t stopped a number of them trying to find out what his demands will be, and an article from Italy on Wednesday morning, which we covered, suggested fees, like the €3.5m required by his agent, could be problematic.
One area of the world where money isn’t really an issue when it comes to football is China, where some clubs already attempted to lure the Tottenham midfielder over the summer to no avail.
However, France Football believe Dembélé is now ‘seriously thinking’ about a move to the Chinese Super League for next season, probably aware it will be the last big paycheque before retirement.
Back over the summer, the Italian press were reporting the Spurs man wanted to remain in a ‘competitive’ league rather than sell his soul for a large windfall, but, then again, things change.
