From Russia (to China) with Love…
Vagner Love, CSKA Moscow’s blue-haired Brazilian striker, has surprisingly completed a move to Chinese club Shandong Luneng, reports French publication L’Equipe.
The 29-year-old forward has been linked to European giants throughout his career, but has all but ended the chances of a career in a major European League with this move to the Chinese minnows.
The enigmatic forward has scored an impressive 201 goals in 389 games throughout his career, and has also bagged four times for the Brazilian national side.
The lure of financial reward in the Far-East however, appears to have been too strong for a player approaching his thirties to resist.
