Transfer News: Liverpool Move For Alex Teixeira, Real Madrid To Bid For Neymar
Liverpool have reportedly made a move for Alex Teixeira, the Shakhtar Donetsk star. The Premiership giants have pounced on Teixeira with a €32 million (£24.6 million) offer.Advertisement
The Brazilian star was earlier linked to Chelsea. Jurgen Klopp entered the race and has leapfrogged over Chelsea in the hunt for Teixeira. Liverpool has sent a delegation team to speak to Shakhtar about the transfer during the team’s winter break in the United States.
Teixeira’s scoring prowess has impressed Klopp. The Brazilian has netted 22 goals in 15 matches in the domestic league for Shakhtar.
Real Madrid on the other hand has made a move for Neymar. Luis Suarez is unlikely to leave Nou Camp, and Lionel Messi is going to stay on at Barcelona.
That leaves Neymar as the only option for Real Madrid to table an offer. Real is now planning to place an astronomical bid for Neymar. Now will Neymar follow the likes of Michael Laudrup, Luis Enrique, Luis Figo, Samuel Eto’o and Cristiano Ronaldo to perform a move from Catalans’ side to Madrid?
