Same reports indicate that the club is prepared to “double or triple” Tanaka’s current $4 million a year over the next two years, which would make him the highest paid Japanese player in their history.

It’s also important to keep in mind that Rakuten has not sent out a press release. There is still reason to believe that there’s hope.
