The Blues appear primed to cash in on the Chinese Super League’s desire for more European talents yet again as Chelsea have reportedly agreed to terms to sell striker Loic Remy – at a 50% markup from his January transfer value.
According to the Metro, the Blues have agreed in principle to sell Loic Remy to an unknown Chinese club for £15.4 million. Per the source, two of the clubs believed to have made the offer are Shanghai Shenhua and Hebei Fortune, who are reportedly offering the French striker £7 million-a-year.
Remy was reportedly going to transfer to Leicester City this past January on a £10.5 million deal, but the move never materialized.
This season, Remy has just one appearance in the Premier League and has been further pushed down the depth chart by the arrival of Corinthians striker Alexandre Pato, who joined on a loan deal several weeks ago.
Earlier this season, Chelsea got a huge cash-infusion when they sold Ramires to Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning for £25 million.
