Alan, a naturalized player of Guangzhou Evergrande, has always been placed high expectations by Chinese people, especially Beijing fans. His personal ability hardly needs to be questioned. When he joined Guoan at the beginning of the year, it caused a shock in the Chinese football world. Alan’s joining made more people believe that Evergrande’s move might lift a stone and hit him in the foot, because Guoan’s strength will be due to Alan's joining has improved significantly, and as an opponent of Evergrande, it will be more difficult to win the championship.
This season, Alan played 13 times for Beijing Guoan, but only started 6 times, averaging only 41 minutes per game. A total of 4 goals and 1 assist were scored. In terms of other data, the key passes are 5 times, the total number of passes is 164, and the pass success rate is 79%. Frankly speaking, Alan's performance has not been recognized by the fans. As a result, many fans began to question, to a large extent, the object of questioning was not Alan himself, but Guoan coach Genesio. What's more, some people think that Genesio doesn't pay much attention to Alan, which originated from the internal conflicts of the Beijing Guoan Club. This statement is in fact alluding to the arranging arrangements between Guoan club Li Ming and coach Genesio, which seems to be controversial.
On October 20, 2020, Beijing time, the Turkish media "bursahakimiyet" announced that Besiktas intends to introduce in the winter window the shooter Alan from Guangzhou Evergrande on loan to Beijing Guoan.
The media said: Chairman Besiktas made it clear that they want to strengthen and supplement the striker in the winter window, and Alan, the striker of Guangzhou Evergrande loaned to Beijing Guoan, is a very clear goal of Besiktas. Besiktas has now contacted Alan's agent. Alan is also eager to join Besiktas. Besiktas intends to rent for one and a half years, and provide high-priced rental fees and pay all the expenses during the lease. Not very likely
According to previous news released by the media, Alan's annual salary in Guangzhou Evergrande is 25 million euros. The cost of renting to Beijing Guoan is currently not transparent, but it is estimated that the rent will not be too low. Alan and Guangzhou Evergrande signed a contract until December 31, 2020. The next contract will implement the new salary limit order for Chinese football. In other words, the maximum salary will plummet to 12 million yuan. This number will be unacceptable to Alan. Moreover, according to the news released by sports reporter Miao Yuan a few days ago, Chinese football is currently studying the further reduction of the player wage system. The salary of international Chinese players will be reduced from 12 million yuan to 5 million yuan. Under such a premise, the Super League is bound to have many foreign aid "fleeing". So from this perspective, Alan originally expressed his wish to leave, but it was reasonable.
However, Alan’s rental fee will certainly not be too low, and the rental fee provided by Beijing Guoan, from the perspective of the market conditions of the Chinese Super League, will only be higher or lower than that of the Turkish Super League. The halo of "naturalized players" on Alan's back is a "sweet pastry" that no Chinese Super League club can refuse. As long as Evergrande releases the news that it wants to loan Alan, it will definitely be snatched by the Super League team. From an economic point of view, there is no turn to participate in the Turkish Super League team. What's more, judging by Alan's ability, the Chinese Super League is among the best, but it's not necessarily the case when it comes to the Tu Super League.
On October 22, Beijing time, Beijing Guoan will continue to face Shandong Luneng in the second round of the Super League, which is also a battle of life and death. If Alan can perform well, he is more likely to stay in Beijing Guoan next season. Otherwise, Alan's fate next season is destined to continue to drift. Of course, if Alan does go to the Turkish Super League, he will become the first Chinese football player to study abroad.
