WARSAW, Poland. February 24 (PSN) – Miroslav Radovic officially completed his transfer to Hebei China Fortune FC on Tuesday, marking the end of his 8,5-year career with Legia Warsaw.
The Polish champions will make roughly over 2 million for the transaction of their Serbian star to Hebei.
Since last week there has been plenty of talk regarding the possible transfer of Radovic to China.
The Serb assured fans several days ago he was still a Legia player and had yet to sign anything with a new club. Legia coach Henning Berg also chimed in and calmed supporters down, stating that there was ‘no way’ Radovic was going anywhere.
Today, the 31-year-old’s transition from Warsaw to Shijiazhuang has not only become a reality but a complication for the Polish side.
The transfer rumour bomb exploded right on the day of the first match against Ajax Amsterdam in the UEFA Europa League. It was then clear that Radovic’s future at the Lazienkowska would soon be coming to an end.
The attacking midfielder was tempted by overwhelmingly high earnings which were offered to him by the Chinese outfit, a contract of a lifetime. Soon afterwards, Serbian media began circulating news that the first encounter with Ajax would be Radovic’s last for Legia.
Not surprisingly, he was removed from the UEFA Europa League match squad at short notice. Henning Berg concluded that because of all the recent confusion connected with the transfer rumour, Radovic was not mentally ready to focus solely on the game. Legia lost the first leg match 0:1.
As local Chinese media reported today, Radovic officially penned a two-year contract with the Chinese League One club.
Reportedly the Chinese have already wired 3 million to the Serb’s bank account right after the completion of the contract signing, as per agreement.
Hebei China Fortune paid Legia over 2 million for the acquisition for Radovic.
