Jonathan Soriano joins Beijing Guoan from Red Bull Salzburg

Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan have completed the transfer with former Barcelona striker Jonathan Soriano from Red Bull Salzburg.

Jonathan Soriano had been in top form for 5 years under Red Bull Salzburg’s jersey with 120 goals over 144 league matches.

In spite of that, the Austrian side decided to sell their star as coach Óscar García is interested in using Asian duo: Takumi Minamino and Hwang Hee-chan in front.

Jonathan Soriano is the product of Barcelona youth academy system. He had been promoted to first team in 2009 but had failed to earn a league appearance before joining Red Bull Salzburg in 2012.
