CHANGCHUN Cheap Nike Air Max 2017 , Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- Shop till you drop. China hasbeen busy with a buying spree since the New Year Day, snapping upbig name footballers with the most money in the internationaltransfer market.

Up to this week, the Chinese Super League (CSL), the country'spremier professional soccer league, has spent more than 286 millionU.S. dollars, more than tiwce what it spent last summer.

The splurge kicked off as Shanghai SIPG imported Brazilianstriker Elkeson de Oliveira Cardoso with 18.5 million euros on Jan.21 from Guangzhou Evergrande Cheap Nike Air Max 96 , defending CSL champion and AsianChampions League winner.

The CSL runner-up hopes to enhance its competitiveness as anew-comer of the Asian Champions League by buying the 26-year-oldstriker, who scored 77 goals in three seasons for Evergrande, andscored the winning goal for Evergrande in the Asian ChampionsLeague final last November.

But Shanghai SIPG didn't hold the transfer record for long. Therecord has been smashed several times in a month, the latest byJiangsu Suning, who lavished 50 million euros to acquire Brazilianmidfielder Alex Teixeria from Ukraine club Shakhtar Donetsk on Feb.5.

The 26-year-old star will join compatriots, former Chelseamidfielder Ramires and former Brazil international striker Jo. Thestar cast made Jiangsu Suning one of the favorites in the upcomingCSL season Cheap Nike Air Max 97 , which will start in March.

Evergrande hasn't saved money, either. The champion club signedAtletico Madrid striker Jackson Martinez on a four-year contractfor a fee of 42 million euros. But compared with what it hadshelled out last summer, the club seems to keep a lower key.

Having tasted defeat last year, CSL sides Shandong Luneng andBeijing Guoan respectively signed Brazil center-back Gil and Turkeyinternational Burak Yilmaz but lay low till February 26 whenChina's transfer window closed.

Another league side Shanghai Greenland Shenhua, after anunsuccessful season, aims to challenge Evergrande in CSL this year.The club announced that they got Nigerian international strikerObafemi Martins from Major League Soccer's Seattle Sounders on Feb.19. Days ago it had announced they already got former Inter Milantalent Freddy Guarin.

The chase of stars also extends to the league's new promoters.Hebei China Fortune has got Argentine forward Ezequiel Lavezzi Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 Womens , theworld's fifth most expensive soccer player, on the hook with aweekly salary of 400,000 pounds.

Apart from Lavezzi, the club also bought several famousfootballers from European leagues, including Cote d'Ivoire strikerGervinho, Cameroon captain Stephane M'Bia Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 Mens , Sevilla midfielder GaelKakuta and Australian defender Ersan Gulum. The newcomer isregarded as a dark horse in CSL this year, but some argued thatit's hard for them to make any breakthrough because of weakness inback-lines construction.

But the price they paid didn't seem to pay off immediately ascash-rich Chinese clubs endured a disappointing opening night inthe Asian Champions League on Wednesday. Both Guangzhou Evergrande,coached by Luiz Felipe Scolari, and Shanghai SIPG failed to wintheir opening group games.

Not every club in the league joined in the binge. PromotedYanbian Fude, who only imported some inexpensive players and toppedin the second division league of China last season, still hasattracted a lot of attention of other CSL sides.

"My players' desire for victory is stronger than the desire formoney. They are all eager to prove themselves in the best stage forChinese soccer players Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 ," said Park Tae-Ha, chief coach of YabianFude.

Australian international Tim Cahill believed that the expensiveimports may impede the development of Chinese soccer.

"Does it help the Chinese? To a certain extent, no," the37-year-old veteran who joined CSL side Hangzhou Greentown ahead of2016 season told Fox Sports. "When you sign players like this,everything in the final third (of the field) is up to us(international strikers), if we don't deliver , it doesn't happen."Enditem

JINAN Cheap Nike Air Max Sale , May 19 (Xinhua) -- China will close its only offshore coal mine, which has been in operation for more than 30 years, in October, as the government toughens its efforts to phase out excess production capacity.

The Beizao Coal Mine, owned by the Shandong Energy Longkou Mining Group in eastern Shandong Province, is located about five kilometers from the coast of Longkou City. Its mine shaft reaches 350 meters underwater.

Li Gongjian Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes , the mine's manager, on Friday confirmed the closure, adding that it is part of a national move to phase out sub-standard production capacity. Sea mining is not efficient as it has a cost three times higher than mining on land.

He said the sea mine, which covers an area of 18 square km, has produced up to 8 million tonnes of raw coal.

The sea mine, with proven reserves of 1.29 billion tonnes of coal Cheap Nike Air Max , made China the fifth country to boast offshore exploitation technology.

Li said the mine opened at a time when the country was energy thirsty, and the group's coal deposits on land.
