Chinese club Guizhou Renhe are chasing Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand and Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard. Super League outfit Guizhou Renhe are willing to pay the Manchester United and Chelsea stars a whopping £250,000-a-week each to persuade them to quit the Premier League this summer.

Guizhou chairman Wang Guolin told The Sun: "I want the best team in China and we are prepared to invest a lot of money to bring Ferdinand and Lampard to us.

"Many people here watch the Premier League and know how good the two players are."
