Sporting CP signing Bolasie turned down CSKA Moscow

Yannick Bolasie rejected a move to CSKA Moscow over racism fears.

The Russian Premier League giants offered the Everton winger a contract worth £75,000-per-week, according to the Daily Mail.

However, Bolasie rejected the deal over fears he would receive racial abuse in Russia.

When asked on Twitter whether he was joining the Russian side, Bolasie responded: "Nah g not on that Malcom treatment."

Bolasie was referring to Zenit Saint Petersburg racially abusing Malcom just days after he arrived at the club.

The Democratic of Congo international instead joined Sporting Lisbon on a season-long loan.
