Atlético Mineiro striker Lucas Pratto can go to Héběi Zhōngjī for €15 million
Atlético Mineiro's Argentine striker Lucas Pratto can soon leave the club to go to Chinese football.
According to Superesportes MG, the Brazilian club have received a €15 million bid from Chinese side Héběi Zhōngjī and the amount is too good for them to turn down. Atlético Mineiro find themselves in a situation where it's nearly impossible to reject a proposal like this for the 27-year-old. In recent days, Atlético were offered €13m, but the club did not accept to sell him.
The offer is believed to be from Héběi Zhōngjī, but they haven't had much success in trying to sign players from Brazil this winter. Héběi can add one more foreign player to their squad, and were interested in Anderson and Elias, but negotiations didn't advance. The report reckons the first proposal rejected by Atlético, in the region of €10m, was from Guangzhou Evergrande.
