With Southampton’s track record of allowing their key stars to leave, Saints fans in the Football Transfer Tavern would be less than surprised if yet another leading player were to leave. Then again, who could blame him with this on offer.
According to the Daily Star, Southampton’s in-demand striker, Graziano Pelle, has been offered a staggering £150,000-a-week to move to China.
The 30-year-old has been heavily linked with moves to follow Ronaldo Koeman to Everton as well as a potential switch to link up with Antonio Conte at Chelsea, after performing well under him for Italy at the Euros.
But Shanghai Greenland, who are super rich, are hoping to lure him away from the Premier League.
Saints are reportedly looking to receive up to £20 million for the striker, whom they brought in for £8m, since he has impressed this summer, with two goals in France.
Southampton fans, we want to hear from you! Do you have a glimmer of hope you will keep hold of Graziano Pelle or does it not matter considering the money you may get? Let us know your thoughts below…
