After the new rule applied by the Chinese Football Association, a transfer of Jackson Martinez to Beşiktaş is becoming more and more likely.

According to the new rule applied by the CFA, football clubs can only field 3 foreign players. At this moment, the number of foreign players that can be fielded is set as 4. Chinese clubs seem to seek for ways now to loan or sell their expensive foreign players.

The team who will be affected the most by this new rule will be Chinese giants Guangzhou Evergrande. In addition to Jackson Martinez, they have got 5 more foreign players. Moreover, according to Chinese media, the head coach of Evergrande is thinking about selling Martinez, because of his underwhelming performances. The 30-year old Colombian striker earns 12 million euros annually and the Chinese club is expected to cooperate and make it easy for any club to get him, so that they will get rid with the least amount of damage as possible.
