Liverpool fans have been venting their frustration on social media this morning after seeing top transfer target Alex Teixeira make a lucrative move to Jiangsu Suning.
The Chinese Super League’s transfer record was broken for the third time in recent weeks as the Brazilian agreed a massive £38m switch from Shakhtar Donetsk.
Liverpool had been in negotiations with the Ukrainian club for the prolific 26-year-old attacker during the January window, but baulked at their £35m asking price.
The Reds were reportedly intent on going back in for Teixeira in the summer, but he has had his head turned by a rumoured £185,000-per-week salary in the Far East.
And that has made the Twitter Kop very angry! Here are some of their best responses…

So instead if playing with Coutinho and Firmino at LFC, Teixeira will now play with some guy named Chi Wang Ping who eats dogs for breakfast

In less than 3 years Teixeira went from being a United fan, to a Chelsea fan, then a LFC fan. Then finally he just went for some takeaway. — Red Mysterio (@redmysterio96) February 5, 2016
