Football: Do you know who Dario Conca is?

I have to admit that this was new to me.

Apparently he is the 5th highest paid (salary only) footballer in the world - and he is playing in China!!

The Argentine player joined 'Guangzhou Evergrande' from Fluminense for a transfer fee of EURO 10 Mio and his salary is..........a whopping EURO 11.5 Mio p.a..

† Appearances (Goals).
Darío Leonardo Conca or simply Darío Conca (born 11 May 1983 in General Pacheco) is an Argentine professional Association football attacking midfielder. Conca was elected for two consecutive years as the best player of Brasileirão in 2009 and 2010.[2][3]
Contents

[hide][edit] Career

Conca started his career in Argentina's Second Division, (Primera B Nacional), and made his debut for Club Atlético Tigre at the age of just 15 years old. River Plate took him just a year later and Conca made the steady rise to River's first team. On 23 November 2003, under then Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini, who later managed Real Madrid, Conca made his first team debut in a 1–0 defeat to Chacarita Juniors.
However in 2004 Conca was loaned to Chilean club Universidad Católica by new River manager Leonardo Astrada and in 2005 won his first title. In 2006 River loaned him out again, this time to Rosario Central where after some impressive displays, Vasco made a successful bid to bring him to Brazil on 5 January 2007, signing an initial one year loan deal from River Plate. He made his Vasco debut and scored in friendly 4-0 win over Villa Rio on 14 January 2007.
In 2008, Conca signed a loan deal with Fluminense, and was a key player in the squad under coach Renato Gaúcho. Conca played an important role in the team's brilliant 2008 Copa Libertadores campaign, along with others such as Thiago Neves, Thiago Silva, Washington, and Cícero. In 2009, he signed a three-year deal with Fluminense. He was voted the best player in Brazil in a poll organized annually by Globo, and was ranked as the fifteenth best player in Latin America and the best player in Brazil by Uruguayan newspaper El País. After a successful season where Fluminense won the Brazilian league, Conca renewed his contract with Fluminense for another five years.
On 2 July 2011, it was reported that Conca would join Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande for an annual salary of $10.4 million, putting him among the highest paid players in the world.[4] He scored his first goal for the club in a 5–0 win against Nanchang Hengyuan on 14 July 2011.

It's China.

The club pays that. He probably gets half and the rest split between the club managers.

I wonder what titan of world football made this decision?
