Delhi Dynamos have announced that they have terminated their contract with the former Italian winger recently. Gianluca Zambrotta guided Delhi to the ISL play-offs last season, though failed to register a win against Kerala Blasters in Semis. The club has been playing brilliant football after his appointment. Now the news has already broken out that Zambrotta has found his new haven in the Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning.



In light of the massive Financial upraise in China, the Chinese Super League (CSL) is the next big thing as their massive spending in the past two seasons on transfers of football players and managers from across Europe has shown what these clubs can do to afford high profile signings such as Oscar from Chelsea for 65 million Euros, and free agents Carlos Tevez and Graziano Pelle who are being paid a hefty sum of wages every-week. The Chinese league is slowly creeping its way into the football community. The commercial aspect is being focused on as they are very kin to expand the project in the next 4-5 years. Also many are unaware about the fact that the Chinese government is funding the project which could help the smaller teams to quickly establish themselves.

Gianluca Zambrotta was phenomenal superstar who has won several accolades in his career and is considered to be one of the best full backs in the world. Jiangsu wants to build upon their diminishing status in the league with the Italian. Jiangsu finished 15th last season in the Chinese Super League. Zambrotta had to cut short his 2 year contract with Delhi Dynamos and part ways with them. Reports from China confirmed that the former Milan fullback is set to earn 150,000 euros per week while the management is giving him 150 million euros transfer kit to sign the likes of Diego Costa, Douglas Costa, Mandzukic and many talents from Europe. Out of the lot, Diego Costa has been told by Chelsea boss that he has no chance of playing for the Blues next season. It is very imminent that the Spanish bazooka might be making a move to the Chinese league. In Jiangsu, Zambrotta will be welcomed in style as the Chinese love to embrace such pure class like him. His role in the club will also help the local talents to develop. He will take time to understand the league but would be the best signing by the club.
