The club in question has not been identified, but Mundo Deportivo claims that the Barcelona right-back has been promised a three-year deal should he make the switch.

The report adds that the 32-year-old would pick up £27m over the course of his stint in the Far East.

Jackson Martinez, Ramires and Alex Teixeira are among a number of footballers that have made a similar lucrative move over recent weeks.

Clubs in China are still permitted to make signings due to the fact that their transfer window does not close until February 26.
