Could there be a twist to the tale again? Chilean star Jorge Valdivia inked a two-year deal with Arabian Gulf League side Al Wahda on Thursday but the Abu Dhabi club may have a fight on their hands with a Chinese club tempting the Copa America hero.
Valdivia, who spent two successful seasons with Al Ain, signed a deal worth $2.5 million per year with The Clarets but Chinese Super League club Guangzhou R&F are offering double that for the 31-year-old playmaker.
A host of Chilean news outlets like CNN Chile, chile.as.com as well as radioagricultra.cl reported on Thursday that Guangzhou R&F have come up with a $10 million offer for Valdivia. Valdivia still has an active contract with Brazilian side Palmeiras, whom he had joined in 2010. The contract runs until August 17.
