Rio de Janeiro, Jan 10 (IANS) Paulo Henrique Ganso could be the latest Brazil international to move to China. Second-tier club Hebei China Fortune has offered the midfielder a monthly salary that is significantly higher than the $75,000 he currently earns with Sao Paulo, reports Xinhua on Saturday.
The 26-year-old’s contract with the Brazilian outfit expires in September 2017. Should Ganso accept the offer, he would join a growing list of Brazilians to be wooed by cash-flush Chinese clubs.
Among current and former Brazil internationals to move to China in recent months are Diego Tardelli (Shandong Luneng), Robinho (Guangzhou Evergrande), Paulinho (Guangzhou Evergrande), Ricardo Goulart (Guangzhou Evergrande), Jadson (Tianjin Songjiang), Luis Fabiano (Tianjin Songjiang) and Renato Augusto (Beijing Guoan).
