Aloísio confirms move from São Paulo to China
The striker has confirmed his by signing a contract with Chinese outfit Shandong Lundeng, the team to be coached by Cuca in 2014.
Aloísio will cost Shandong £4m. The striker was previously loaned to São Paulo by Tombense-MG, but the Tricolor will receive 50% of payment. The 25-year-old has agreed a four-year contract with the Chinese outfit that will run until the end of 2017.
A clause in the contract gives São Paulo the right to buy the striker for £1.5m until the midway point of next season. As well as being one of the top scorers for the Morumbi side last season with 22 goals, he was also used extensively by the club for marketing purposes. Despite this, São Paulo chose not to keep the striker.
At the Chinese club, Aloísio is likely to partner Wagner Love in attack. Physiotherapist Luis Rosan, sacked by São Paulo last year, was the last Brazilian to join the Asian team.
