I said it earlier on in the thread, despite the money I do feel for the guy. Although ultimately the move will make him rich, it's not what was motivating him and he clearly tried everything to stay in the PL one way or the other. Money isn't the be all and end all for everybody, and job satisfaction carries just as much weight for a lot of people. His career is basically over now, he will be playing for money and nothing else. It must be sad for him that at one point he basically had the world at his feet and now he's got to pack up and go and play in some tin pot league in china.
