Fulham reject £50m bid for Aleksandar Mitrovic – but he’s now ‘tempted to leave’ – Report

According to the Sun, Fulham have rejected a whopping £50m bid from Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande for Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The story insists that Fulham are ‘desperate’ to hang onto the Serbian – which is no surprise given he’s their top scorer – however it’s said that he ‘could be tempted’ to leave given the huge money on offer in China.

The Sun also claim that he has become ‘unsettled’ following the departure of compatriot Slavisa Jokanovic, with this big money bid only likely to turn his head even further.

Here’s a snippet from the piece itself:

FULHAM have turned down a £50million offer for striker Aleksandar Mitrovic from Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande.

The Cottagers are desperate to hang on to their top scorer as they try to escape the threat of relegation.

But it’s believed Mitrovic could be tempted to leave by the big money on offer in another wave of significant moves in the transfer market by Chinese clubs.

This is the China – a league where owners are prepared to pay stupid money to attract some Premier League stars – but Mike Ashley may be wondering why he sold him for half this price just a few months ago IF these rumours are true.

I can’t see this happening and find it hard to believe that a talented young player like Mitrovic would actually leave for such an uncompetitive league, but any move would be good news for Newcastle.
