Chinese Super League clubs will face spending caps after recent mass spendings.

China’s chief sports governing body has announced that their will be a spending cap after the big spending of Chinese Super League clubs.

The league’s current pre-season transfer window is set to break records in the wake of  Oscar’s £60m move to Shanghai SIPG from Chelsea and Shanghai Shenhua’s £40m capture of Carlos Tevez.

The Argentina striker has reportedly signed a deal worth £310,000 a week.

A spokesperson for China’s General Administration of Sport said clubs in the country were “burning money”.
