Don't be fooled by the stories coming out of China (Drogba's team apparently not being able to pay his wages, etc.). There is plenty of money in China. Just like Qatar there are some pretty rich "businessmen" and conglomerates just looking to throw money away. In a few years, I could see the Chinese league grow from strength to strength. Kind of like the Russian league right now.
