Jackson Martinez's Career In China Has Just Hit Rock Bottom

Remember when Jackson Martinez was touted for a big future?

After tearing it up in the Portuguese top flight with FC Porto, the Colombian forward transferred to the La Liga with Atletico Madrid.

While he was attracting plenty of interest from around Europe including Manchester United and Chelsea, the Chinese Super League ultimately lured him to the Far East by tabling a hugely lucrative contract.

Guangzhou Evergrande snapped up his services for a reported fee of €42 million.

He's been plying his trade in China since 2016, but his future is now looking bleak following this latest development.

Guangzhou's manager is none other than Fabio Cannavaro, and the Italian boss has cut him from not only the Super League squad but also the Asian Champions League team, per Marca.

Martinez has been removed from the four foreign player picks.
