AC Milan's Luiz Adriano backs out of €14 million move to Jiangsu - reports

AC Milan striker Luiz Adriano is reportedly returning to Italy after a €15 million transfer to Chinese side Jiangsu Suning FC fell through at the last second.

The Brazil international arrived in China on Monday to complete his medical and sort out a work permit, but reports emerged on Tuesday via Brazilian media outlet GloboEsporte that the player had pulled the plug on the deal.

Sky Sports Italia have also confirmed there have been issues between the player and club, saying that Luiz Adriano will now fly back to Italy and train with Milan on Thursday.

The 28-year-old arrived at the San Siro from Shakhtar Donetsk for €8 million in the summer and has scored three goals in 18 league appearances.
