Beijing €4m short for Luiz Adriano?

Beijing Gouan are reportedly €4m short of Milan’s asking price for Luiz Adriano.

The striker almost joined Jiangsu Suning in January, but the move fell through in the final contract negotiations.

In China, the transfer window is open until February 26, and it’s been reported in recent days that Beijing Gouan are looking to bring the player to the Far East.

Today, Calciomercato reports that the Rossoneri are asking for around €15m for Luiz Adriano, but the Chinese club’s offer is only €11m.

However, the distance is not too big, and it’s thought that an agreement could be reached, with the Diavolo keen to sell the player.

Having paid €8m to sign the Brazilian from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer, an €11m sale would see Milan make a €3m profit, as well as saving around €27m on his contract, which runs until 2020.
