Alexandre Pato has confirmed that he will be leaving China after terminating his contract with Tianjin Tianhai.
Pato joined the club – then named Tianjin Quanjian – in January 2017 after a move from La Liga side Villarreal.
The Brazilian striker was successful during his two years in China, netting 30 league goals in 47 appearances for the club.
But the 29-year-old had failed to appear in either of Tianjin Tianhai’s opening two games of the season amidst rumours that he had fallen out with the club.
And Pato has now confirmed his departure in a post on Chinese social media network Weibo.
“My dear Chinese friends, I‘d like to inform you that my adventure in China has come to an end,” Pato wrote.
