Maxi Gomez agrees to leave Celta Vigo for Chinese clubDecember 11, 2017
Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez has agreed to join Chinese Super League outfit Beijing Guoan, according to reports.
Having arrived from Uruguayan club Defensor Sporting during the summer, Gomez has proved a valuable asset for Celta.
He started life in La Liga with two goals on his debut and has been decent for the Galician’s since, scoring a hat full of goals.
Despite Celta’ resolve and Gomez’ desire to stay in Spain; it is now understood that the deal from Guoan has been too attractive to turn down for both the club and the player himself.
The Uruguayan is now set to multiply his wages by ten, according to Faro de Vigo, whilst Spanish daily Marca also discuss the report and say that a move has agreed.
The deal is a payment of €16m upfront with a further payment of €4m in variables due to come in the future.
Whilst Gomez will join the Chinese club in January; it is expected that he will face Villarreal and Deportivo La Coruna before leaving the Balaidos.
Celta had remained three games unbeaten heading into the weekend fixture with Valencia at the Mestalla on Saturday but a goal from Iago Aspas was cancelled out by goals from Simone Zaza and Dani Parejo.
