FILE - In this Feb. 3, 2016 file photo, Chelsea's Oscar sits on the pitch during the English Premier League soccer match between Watford and Chelsea at the Vicarage Road stadium in London. The governing body of Chinese soccer plans a series of measures in response to what is termed "irrational" spending by clubs on transfer fees and player salaries, amid concerns that foreign stars are crowding out local talent and harming the country's goal of becoming a global force in the sport. Shanghai Shenhua said it paid an $11 million transfer fee to Argentina's Boca Juniors for Teves. Oscar was purchased from Chelsea, and Brazilians Hulk, Ramires, Alex Teixeira and Paulinho, Colombian striker Jackson Martinez and Argentine forward Ezequiel Lavezzi also joined the league.
