Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says China’s spending power is a “danger” to global soccer.

Conte’s comments came with Oscar in talks to follow former Chelsea teammate Ramires by moving to the Chinese Super League.

The 25-year-old Oscar is reported to be joining Shanghai SIPG, which is coached by former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas, for about $65 million.

Clubs in the Chinese Super League have spent more than $400 million on foreign players in 2016.
