Shock-tar: Donetsk star Teixeira makes surprise move to China for $56 million
After a Premier League move failed to materialize in the January transfer window, Shakhtar Donetsk star Alex Teixeira could be making the move to China for a whopping $56 million.
Teixeira is just 26, and this move explains why both Liverpool and Chelsea failed to bring the Brazilian attacker. Jiangsu Suning is the club in question, where Teixeira could team up with Ramires.
Safe to say if we told you months ago that Ramires and Teixeira would be teammates in February, you’d say, “Chelsea”.More to come, for sure, but this is out-of-this-world stuff. We thought the four Corinthians players heading to China was wild enough, but we’re in next level territory now.
