On October 1, Beijing time, Shenhua officially announced that Ecuadorian player Miller Bolaños officially joined the team. In response to the concern of the outside world about the registration of foreign aid in the Shenhua Club, the club news officer Ma Yue explained.
Ma Yue said: “As one of the teams participating in the 2020 AFC Champions League, according to the requirements of the AFC and the Chinese Football Association's relevant rules, the club must first enter the Chinese Football Association system before the first registration deadline for the AFC Champions League on January 10. Only after registering professional players who meet the conditions of the competition can register for the AFC Champions League. At that time, Shenhua registered a total of 4 foreign aids including Moreno, Ighalo, Shalawi + Jin Xinyu (Asia Wai)."
"In late January, with the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, the Chinese Super League and the AFC Champions League have been postponed one after another, and there are major uncertainties about whether they can be held. In this case, in order to reduce the club’s expenditure as much as possible, while taking into account the players themselves The desire to participate, after discussing with the coaching staff, the club will loan Ighalo to Manchester United on January 31, and obtain a loan fee of more than 12 million euros throughout the year. Ighalo has not represented Shenhua in any official game this season. "
"The transfer registration rules and transfer window settings of the 2020 Super League have also undergone several adjustments along with the development of the epidemic. The registration of Ighalo with the Chinese Football Association at the beginning of the year was entirely due to the name of the AFC Champions League forecast at the time. Need, taking into account this special situation, the Chinese Football Association approved the application of the Shenhua Club. The registration of Ighalo at that time is not included in the cumulative number of foreign aid registrations throughout the year."
"On September 10, the AFC officially announced that all East Asian AFC matches will be completed between November 15 and December 13, and the location is to be determined. All East Asian teams need to be on October 21 Completed "one more" "new" round of registration before, which means that the previous registration is invalid again!"
“ 9月10日，亚足联正式宣布，所有东亚AFC比赛将在11月15日至12月13日之间完成，具体地点将待确定。所有东亚球队都必须在10月21日完成“更多”的比赛。 “之前的一轮注册，这意味着先前的注册再次无效！”
"In addition, the Shenhua club introduced two Ecuadorian players at a lower cost to replace two relatively high-paid players, which is in line with the Chinese Football Association's requirement to return to rational investment in football. We look forward to the joint efforts of the club and Shenhua to continue to use relatively reasonable and rational investment. Achieving relatively ideal results in return for the love from all walks of life and the majority of Shenhua fans for the team."
