Giovanni Moreno signs with Shanghai Shenhua
BEIJING (AP) Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua has confirmed that it has signed Colombia international Giovanni Moreno, just days after bringing Didier Drogba to the club.
A brief statement on the club's website Monday said the 25-year-old signed on for two years with an option for two more. It gave no salary details and did not say when he would arrive in Shanghai. Moreno joins Shenhua after a season with Argentine side Racing Club.
Shenhua has been spending prodigiously on foreign players in an effort to boost its standings in the Chinese Super League. In recent months it has added former Argentina coach Sergio Batista and Drogba's former Chelsea teammate Nicolas Anelka.
