10. Rafael Benitez (Dalian Yifang) – €13m.
After ending a three-year stay at Newcastle United last summer, Benitez put pen-to-paper on a lucrative contract with Dalian Yifang. It’s the first time he’s ventured out of Europe in his career.
Although the former Liverpool boss hasn’t enjoyed an easy start in China, with only seven wins in his 17 games. A further seven defeats and three draws have also come his way.
Rafa will undoubtedly hope to do better once football finally resumes in China again.
