Alibaba to buy half of football club Evergrande
Evergrande, the Chinese property developer, has announced it is selling 50 per cent of its football club, Guangzhou Evergrande FC, to Alibaba, the Chinese ecommerce giant run by billionaire entrepreneur Jack Ma.

The deal not only highlights how the waning of the world's biggest real estate boom is seeing China's mega-wealth shift from bricks to clicks, as Chinese property developers struggle with high debt and an oversupply of owned-but-empty buildings.

It also draws parallels with Rakuten, the Japanese online retailer, whose boss Hiroshi Mikatani steered the company to purchase a baseball team, the Rakuten Eagles.

Alibaba has been acquisitive ahead of its IPO, recently snapping up stakes in Singaporean logistics group Singapore Post and Chinese mall operator Intime, and increasing its ownership of mapping software group AutoNavi to 100 per cent.

Still, branching out into football may be a step too far for institutional investors who are weighing up the merits of Alibaba's New York listing, which is expected to value the e-commerce company at more than $100bn.

中国房地产开发商恒大(Evergrande)宣布,将把广州恒大足球俱乐部(Guangzhou Evergrande FC)50%的股权出售给中国电子商务巨擘阿里巴巴(Alibaba),阿里巴巴由亿万富翁企业家马云(Jack Ma)掌管。

这笔交易突显出,全球规模最大的房地产热潮正在衰退,中国房地产商面对高债务和空置房供应过量的难题,中国巨额财富正在实现线上线下的价值链转移。

此举与日本在线零售商乐天(Rakuten)类似,乐天老板三木谷浩史(Hiroshi Mikitani)曾购买乐天金鹰(Rakuten Eagles)棒球队。

在首次公开发行(IPO)前,阿里巴巴的收购意愿一直很强烈。最近,该公司购入新加坡物流公司新加坡邮政(Singapore Post)和中国商场经营者银泰百货(Intime)的部分股权,并将其对地图软件集团高德(AutoNavi)的持股增至100%。

然而,对于正在权衡阿里巴巴在美上市所带来好处的机构投资者而言,进军足球业可能过于遥远,预计阿里巴巴上市后的估值将超过1000亿美元。
