Brazil paper report Flamengo striker Hernane set for China move
Lancenet.com have revealed that Flamengo forward Hernane will soon be leaving the club to start a new adventure in China.
The 27-year-old is expected to move to Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua for a reported fee of €5 million and will not be selected for Fla’s Copa Libertadores match against Emelec on Wednesday night.
The Brazilian newspaper added that Hernane is likely to complete his transfer by the end of today.
The former Mogi Mirim forward had an offer submitted for his services at the beginning of the season from a club in the Arab Emirates that was similar to the fee bid by Shanghai.
Flamengo rejected that offer but appear happy to sell their talented forward this time around according to the Brazilian publication.
It was only a few weeks ago that Hernane scored four times in a State Championship match and he has been a huge hit at the Rio de Janeiro club since initially joining on loan in 2012.
Should this transfer go through as expected, the Brazilian forward will be a big miss for Flamengo.
