Congolese striker Cedric Bakambu joins Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan

FRENCH-BORN Congolese striker Cedric Bakambu was officially presented by Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan on Thursday, capping a weeks-long transfer saga following his departure from Spain’s Villarreal.

The 26-year-old player had announced his move away from Spain in mid-January but the Beijing club delayed an official announcement, even after posting a photo of him training with the team in Portugal.

His reported 40-million-euro ($49 million) move appeared to have been complicated by the Chinese Football Association’s decision last year to impose a new 100 percent transfer tax on deals worth over 45 million yuan ($7 million).

Reports suggested the move was structured to dodge the transfer tax. The CFA warned last month that teams evading the levy would face crippling point deductions under new measures aimed at plugging loopholes in the restrictions.

The levy was imposed as the CFA worries about an influx of well-paid foreigners following record-shattering signings in recent years.

Manchester United’s pursuit for winger Jadon Sancho is nearing its end after the English giants tabled a take-or-leave offer for Borussia Dortmund.

The Mirror reports that United is willing to give the German heavyweights £90 million ($163m AUD) for the England star, and not a cent more.

United would pay £75 million of the figure upfront while the remaining £15 million could be won in add-ons, according to the publication.

The offer is expected to bring to a close United’s long-running pursuit for Sancho, who sent Red Devils fans into a spin on Friday by saying Marcus Rashford is the most skilful player he has played with.
