-- The Chinese Give Up on Mitroglou --
According to reports out of Portugal, Tianjin Quanjian have given up their efforts to sign Kostas Mitroglou from Benfica.
Tianjin Quanjian sent officials to Lisbon to convince Kostas Mitroglou to sign with the Chinese club, however their efforts went to waste. Mitroglou denied the millions that were offered to him and will continue his career in Europe. The Greece international is in the best form of his career having scored 22 goals this season for Benfica.
The representative of Tianjin Quanjian officially announced that the club will look into other options stating in an interview with A Bola “Mitroglou was our only interest in Portugal, but we could not acquire him. I will now travel to England to sign another striker.”
