Chinese club make world-record bid for AubameyangShare:
Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG have reportedly made a world-record bid of €150m (£127m) for Borussia Dortmund's striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabonese's remarkable form for the Dortmund which has seen him score 22 goals in 21 games so far this season has led to interest from a host of top clubs across Europe.
And according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Chinese outfit SIPG are looking to make certain of the deal with a £127m offer that would make Aubameyang the world's most expensive ever player, eclipsing the £89m spent by Manchester United on Paul Pogba last summer.
Arsenal had a £42m offer turned down last summer, while Real Madrid recently balked at Dortmund's €80m (£68m) asking price.
The publication also claims that Aubameyang will be offered wages of around £675,000 a week, making him the world's top-earning football player ahead of Carlos Tevez, who penned a £615,000-a-week deal with SIPG's rivals Shanghai Shenhua last month.
