Luiz Adriano: Beijing or Jiangsu?

Luiz Adriano’s agent confirms the Milan striker is in talks for a Chinese move, but is it Jiangsu Suning or Gouan Beijing?

The Brazilian was left out of the squad for tomorrow night’s Coppa Italia quarter-final against Carpi, as Milan Channel admitted he was “in transfer negotiations.”

Sky Sport Italia are one of multiple sources who claim a move to China is imminent worth €13m, which would be a €5m profit just six months on from his Shakhtar Donetsk transfer.

“Will Luiz Adriano go to China? He could do,” agent Gilmar Veloz told

“Tomorrow I will arrive in Italy to talk it over with Milan. What club is it with? I cannot say that. Is it Alberto Zaccheroni’s Beijing Guoan? I wouldn’t know…”

SportItalia, on the other hand, insist the club is Jiangsu Suning FC, who last week saw a €10m offer for Sampdoria forward Eder rejected.

Sky Sport Italia point to a third club, newly promoted Hebei China Fortune.
