Marseille's Dimitri Payet Offered Deal That Would Triple His Salary

Dimitri Payet appears to be a wanted man.

Dimitri Payet is attracting interest from China. He's reportedly been offered a whopping contract by Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang.

The Frenchman has been plying his trade at Marseille since January 2017 following a £25 million switch from Premier League outfit West Ham United.

But he could be calling time on his second spell at the French club amid speculation from Asia.

Ex-AS Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim, who's set to take charge of Dalian in the coming days, has targeted the signing of Payet according to France Football.

Marseille don't want to sell Payet. However, the club may be tempted to offload their creative midfielder who turns 32 in March.

The report claims the Chinese club have tabled a deal in the region of £27 million. What's more, they're prepared to hand him a contract worth a staggering £250,000-a-week.

If he does accept a contract to venture to the Far East, it'll triple his earnings. It's suggested the decision rests on Payet.

Plenty of players have opted to cash out and head to China for a huge pay day, will Payet be the latest European-based star to play in the CLS?
