Hernanes close to Chinese Super League switch

Juventus midfielder Hernanes is reportedly set to join Hebei China Fortune in the Chinese Super League this season.

The 31-year-old former Brazilian international has struggled for game time this season, making just eight Italian Serie A starts for the league leaders.

According to various reports in Italy, the former Lazio and Inter Milan star has an agreement to join Manuel Pellegrini’s side before the CSL shuts in the next few days.

Hebei China Fortune are said to have offered Juventus €10m and the player was rumoured to receive salary around €8m in a one-year contract.

Should he make the move, Hernanes would join the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi and Gervinho at Hebei China Fortune, who finished seventh in the CSL last season.
