Alex Teixeira's Wage Packet At New Club Jiangsu Suning Is Ridiculous


Alex Teixeira is set to follow a number of high profile players to the Chinese Super League this month, and it's been revealed how much he will receive during his time in China.

The Brazilians £35 million fee is higher than the £32 million Guaghzuo Evergrande paid Atletico Madrid for Jackson Martinez and the £25m paid to Chelsea for Ramires but his wage is reportedly lower than Martinez's.

How much sympathy do we feel for Teixeira? None at all.

According to sources, the Brazilian is set to become the 10th highest paid player in world football and sources believe he will earn 10 million euros annually. That's 192,000 euros per week.

Jiangsu have been able to move for the Brazilian forward as the Chinese transfer window does not close until February 26

Should Liverpool have done more to sign Teixeira?

The Premier League title has evaded Liverpool for years, but with this team they would have it in their pocket.
