Augusto FERNANDEZ could soon be heading to China.
Javier MASCHERANO could soon have some company in China. According to reports, Augusto FERNANDEZ of Atletico Madrid could very well end up joining Chinese club Beijing Renhe. The midfielder has been left out of Diego SIMEONE’s last three match squads and per El Confidencial, the player has already told the Atletico dressing room that he will be leaving and joining Beijing Renhe.
Talks regarding the move reportedly started weeks ago and with very little playing time and now at 31 years old, this could be Augusto’s last move.
The player joined SIMEONE’s team from Celta Vigo back in January 2016, however, a big ligament injury saw him out of action for a lengthy period of time. Fellow Argentinian Luciano VIETTO already left the club earlier this month as he went on loan to Valencia.
