Chinese 'Giant' Sign Argentine Unknown for Big Bucks!

Specifically, he's now the world's third highest paid player, behind, of course, Ronaldo and Messi. What do we make of this? He's 28, and I've never heard of him, yet some club in China can justify spending this kind of money on him? Just a publicity stunt, maybe?

Best be on a slow boat, desire! We need time to arrange things before you get there as your collective agents. Plus, we do regular EF crack deals with the team, and they will be pleased to have you, we're sure...

haha un fair play, Piatti is a super player, player of the year in brazil last year with other super names playing that league, many fiffa players of the year have come out from there, and if this lad can get the best player of the league award last year he deserves lots of credits..

that being said, the amount of money is obviously a stupidity.....

but the player might deserve to play in a uefa cup team in europe, he's not crippled or anything ;)
