PSV in for teenage Chinese keeper
BEIJING, Nov 7 (Reuters) - Dutch club PSV Eindhoven have offered Shanghai United 800,000 euros for 17-year-old Chinese goalkeeper Wang Dalei.
Wang, one of the most talented young players in China, could join the Dutch champions by the end of the year, Shanghai United's deputy general manager Liu Jun told the China Youth Daily.
'If negotiations are smooth, the entire transfer process may be completed by Dec. 31,' Liu said.
PSV sent a 'letter of intent' last week containing an agreement to a 10 percent sell-on clause. It also allowed for Wang to play half a season in the Chinese Super League in the first three years after joining PSV, the paper said.
The report comes after PSV invited Shanghai Shenhua midfielder twins Sun Xiang and Sun Ji to a two-week trial with the club in November. The pair are to arrive at PSV in mid-November, according to the club's Web site.
PSV is not the first club to show an interest in Wang, who had a week-long trial with Italian Serie A club Inter Milan earlier this year, according to the Shanghai Daily.
Wang is one of three goalkeepers named in China Olympic coach Ratomir Dujkovic's 27-man squad for next month's Asian Games in Doha.
