Carlos Tevez has avoided the wage crisis that has left 13 Chinese clubs facing bans from the Super League next season for failing to pay their players properly.
Argentinian striker Tevez banks a staggering £615,000-per-week in China.
And his club Shanghai Shenhua are one of the sides who have been told to settle their arrears by August 15 or face the consequences.
Though Mirror Sport understands Shanghai have ensured the ex-West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City striker is one player who received his wages on time.
Two of the Premier League’s big exports, £25m Ramires and £60m Oscar, who both left Chelsea for the Far East, have also dodged pay problems.
However their clubs Jiangsu Suning and Shanghai SIPG, are in danger and among the top-flight clubs accused of failing to pay their players’ salaries and bonuses.
Former Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho is one of Oscar’s teammates along with Brazil forward Hulk.
Current champions Guangzhou Evergrande and five second tier sides have also been listed.
And only three Super League sides are in the clear.
The clubs have been named in a correspondence between the Chinese Football Association and Asian Football Confederation.
And their threat to block clubs from entering the CSL is the latest move in the spending-related crackdown by Chinese authorities.
The Chinese government accused teams earlier this year of the “grave phenomenon” of “burning money” on foreign players instead of investing in youth development.
And following the influx of talent from abroad they responded by reducing the number of foreign players allowed in a match day squad from four to three while increasing the number of home players.
Forfeits for spending on wages have also been introduced.
