Teixeira makes €50m move to China
05 Feb 2016 09:09
Chinese side Jiangsu Suning have agreed a deal to sign Liverpool target Alex Teixeira from Shakhtar Donetsk for €50m, the Ukrainian club have announced on their website.
-
Liverpool had been closely linked with a move for the 26-year-old Brazilian during the January transfer window and Shakhtar said they rejected a £24m offer from the Reds for the attacking midfielder, with their asking price being €70m euros (£53m) for a summer transfer. Now, Shakhtar have announced a deal with Jiangsu.
-
A statement on shakhtar.com read: "Shakhtar Donetsk and Jiangsu Suning FC have agreed on all the necessary formalities for the transfer of Alex Teixeira to the Chinese club. Transfer fee for the Brazilian midfielder is €50m.
-
"Shakhtar thank Alex for the time spent in the team and wish him success at his new club."
-
Teixeira joined Shakhtar in December 2009 from Vasco da Gama and scored 89 goals in 223 appearances for the Ukrainian outfit.
-
He has also helped the club claim five Premier League titles, three domestic cups and five Super Cups.
-
Teixeira is the third big-money signing by a Chinese club in the last fortnight, with the Asian transfer record being broken on each occasion in the wake of a bumper new TV rights deal.
-
Jiangsu, who are coached by former Chelsea defender Dan Petrescu, paid £21.5m to sign Ramires from Chelsea before Guangzhou Evergrande smashed the record again this week with £31.7m signing of Jackson Martinez from Atletico Madrid.
