OMG. Alex Teixeira just rejected a place in the Liverpool team for mega-bucks China move.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are set to miss out on top target Alex Teixeira after the striker was lured by Chinese club Jiangsu Suning, according to news source Calciomercato. The Chinese Super League club are reportedly prepared to pay $55 million for the Brazilian, a gobsmacking figure that would make him unattainable for the Reds.
Rumors had been emerging over the past week that Jiangsu Suning were about to smash the league’s record fee that was only just set seven days earlier by Guangzhou Evergrande, when they purchased Jackson Martinez from Atlético Madrid for $47 million. Surely the Super League isn’t killing the mighty Premier League and La Liga of it’s finest players. Historically, no, it was a league that attracted has-beens but Teixeira is different.
He is totally legit. A Champions-League quality player in the prime of his career. At 26 years old, he has sold his soul to the dark side of the game driven by money. Goodbye Alex Teixeira.
