The former Brazil international is expected to complete his transfer to the Chinese Super League after the clubs agreed the terms of his sale

Juventus have agreed to sell Hernanes to Hebei Fortune for an initial fee of €8 million, rising to €10m including bonuses.

Goal understands that the Serie A giants have concluded negotiations with the Chinese Super League club and that the player will undergo a medical before finalising a two-year contract with Hebei.

The Brazilian will join Ezequiel Lavezzi, Stephane Mbia, and former Arsenal attacker Gervinho at the Qinhuangdao Olympic Sports Center Stadium.

Hebei are managed by ex-Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini, who was appointed in August as they finished seventh in the Chinese Super League.

Hernanes spent just a season-and-a-half at Juventus, having signed from Inter for €11m. He had previously lined out for Lazio following his move to Serie A from Sao Paulo in 2010.

The midfielder enjoyed his best spell of success while at Sao Paulo, winning the Brazilian league title twice and also being named the 2008 Brazilian Football of the Year.

The 31-year-old made just 24 Serie A appearances for Juventus, scoring twice in a disappointing spell with the Old Lady.
