The Premier League might be considered the most attractive league in the world for many, but the Chinese Super League is trying to change that.

With seemingly all the money in the world, Chinese clubs are trying persuade a number of Premier League super stars to move East. Most notably, Chelsea’s Diego Costa nearly left for China in January.

Now, is it time for Tottenham to start worrying about losing one of their stars?

The Sun reports Shanghai SIPG, managed by former Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas, are willing to pay left-back Danny Rose £14.5 million-a-year.

But the story suggests Rose has turned the offer down in order to help Tottenham win a major trophy under Mauricio Pochettino.

Shanghai are reportedly willing to pay £38 million for Rose. There’s no way Daniel Levy would let a key player leave for such a fee, particularly in today’s financial climate in which players can cost upwards of £50-60 million.

Of course, the story could be complete fiction. If it is true, it’s promising to hear that Rose remains grounded for now. But will China come sniffing for Spurs’ stars again in the summer?
